A Yuletide Welcome by Plum Street Samplers
40ct in the called for linen
called for GAST and NPI
I've wanted to stitch this one since I first saw the pictures for it from the Shepherd's Bush retreat. Paulette has been hitting it out of the ballpark with her designs recently. As you can see, the border has been neglected for the lovely stuff on the inside. lol!
You might have noticed the lovely Elizabeth I Needleminder sitting there in the picture. Isn't it cute? Paula of Kelmscott Designs sent it to me. The scissors are very small and act as your needleminder. They match the Elizabeth I scissors. I love it! Thank you, Paula!
A Yuletide Welcome and the needleminder were just two of the pick me ups that I had this week from my empty nest. My dear friend Laurie from Corgi Cottage sent me two packages containing lots more pick me ups. Look at all this!
Oh my gosh, it was one thing after another in this package! I know it's hard to tell what all is there, but among other things, a lovely Emma Bridgewater mug, a pin cushion, lots of fabric, a stitching wallet made of Tula Pink fabric from Stitching 4 Joy, a Laundry Baskets Quilts calendar, -- and more! Thank you so so much for a wonderful pick me up, Laurie!
This past weekend, the father type and I took a little drive up to our favorite antiquing town.
We had a nice lunch there and wandered around. And we ended up buying some things. Mostly from Go Go Pops. This store has a wonderful selection of home made pops, unusual sodas, and..... chocolate!
The top two items (the Ritter Sport Hazelnut chocolate and the Prince George magnet) were from The Country Goose. But the rest were from Go Go Pops. Father Type and I have been sampling slowly all weekend. lol! The colorful seeds on the far left are chocolate covered sunflower seeds!
Mia has been very clingy and needy since the boy child went back to college. It might take her a while to settle back into the empty nest.
Thanks as always for stopping by and saying hi. I hope everyone has a great week.
