Hello friends. A big warm welcome to every one and to my new followers. Oh my Goodness! I jumped far above 100 followers. A big Thank You to for those of you who listed my giveaway on your blogs - wow. That was so kind & sweet of you and very unexpected.
I have some photos of what I've been stitching since my last post and from this weekend mostly.
I only had one mishap. A tip for you needleworkers - make sure you always put the cover or cap back on your seam ripper everytime you go to set it down. Can you see where this is going? Oh yea! I had to frog some stitches. I took my pretty seam ripper and used it, then I set it on my lap (didn't put the cover back on). Of course when I reached for it, it slid down my lap. I went to pick it up and moved my hand around to find it - found it. When I pulled my hand up, I saw the sharp end was stuck in my hand....bleeding stopped after 30 minutes. I'm fine. So please recap your sharp seam rippers.
Some photos to share with you then at the end of post the winner is listed:)
Finished this block on Autumn Hawk Run Hallow.
Stitching 1 over 1.

A close up of the design Terri stitched for me.
Some new stash I picked up at Thimblecreek Quilt store in Concord California. It's a beautiful store that has many gorgeous quilts on display and is packed with lovely fabrics.
32ct Lilac Linen with DMC threadsI stitched this Lady who is embroidering on her lap (there is a scene shes stitching) and shes surrounded by flowers which I added beads to the petals. The chart I used to stitch the lady and the castle is called "The Illuminated Manuscript" featured in Cross Stitch & Country Crafts magazine dated Jan/Feb 1990. I kept my magazines from way back. I can't tell you how many times I have pulled them out over the years for charts.
Now I ended up making the sachet into a stitchers purse fully lined.
I added a pocket in the back of the needlecase.
