When Vallie and I were taking our walk tonite, there was a wonderful breeze and you could tell that fall is just around the corner. Now fall here in Florida has a different meaning than anywhere else. Fall here means the highs are only in the 80's or if your lucky, the 70's. We look forward to it every year because it just feels so darn good. :o)
I do have a confession to make. When Ma Teakettle placed her sales on Never Enough Stash, there was one that caught my eye. BBD Winter. I've wanted to stitch the grouping of Summer, Spring and Winter for some time but just couldn't find Winter....well she had it and I couldn't resist. Now Ma being Ma, she came up with an excellent plan.....she sent me the pattern but she won't send me the invoice to pay until my 2 months are up. Now is that a deal or what? LOL Not only did she treat me with that but look what was in the package with the pattern. A beautiful collection of Sampler Threads called Summer Splash. I was speechless!!! and let me tell you, that is soooo unlike me. Now I must ask a favor.
I would like to stitch a sampler using all 10 of these colors as a remembrance of a kindness from a fellow stitcher. Do you have any ideas on what sampler I could stitch? The first thing I thought of was a quaker, but maybe you have something different in mind that I could do.
Ma Teakettle, thank you so much for these beautiful threads! I love each and every one of them.
Now as to my finish, remember me telling you that Marly over at Samplers & Santas was kind enough to share Pennsylvania Redware with me.....well here it is finished and framed. I fell in love with this frame at Joann's but the design was a little short for it so I added some primitive rick rack. I love how this turned out and it sits on my mantle.
About the Quaker Garden from BBD that I was going to stitch on the checked fabric. Well let me say this, now I know why when you see this on french blogs, they have stitched a monotone on it. When I did some of the Quaker Garden, it looked way too busy so out it came. I'm thinking about stitching another BBD on it that's a monotone.....I just have to make up my mind which one.
I hope you all are having a wonder week so far and that the frog is not darkening your door.
Have a blessed day,
