A 2008 (maybe 2009?) release from Country Stitches
With Thy Needle and Thread
... stitched on 22 ct. Fine Ariosa with charted DMC threads. Lightly aged with walnut stain... stuffed with wool snippets and backed with same fabric as the top of the acorn. A fun, quick stitch... and yes, the pattern is still (after all these years) available on the Country Stitches website... here. lol! :-)
I also received some goodies in the mail from my buddy Pam! She stitched a beautiful Blessings Saltbox House (with angel) punchneedle and attached it to a really kewl basket! Isn't it beautiful? This basket also happens to be just the right size to hold my current Wool BOM in progress (more on that later... we are working on that together, though neither of us have been able to start it yet? lol!)
Pam also included some projects books, and patterns for hooking and wool applique.. along with a gorgeous piece of wool! And those scarecrow plates and napkins are too cute! I love it all! :-)
And now... back to stitching the two BOM's (in progress for 3 years) of top priority! You know... the ones I must finish before starting another new anything!?!?!? lol! ;-)
Until next time!
