Snow and Tell DaySaturday, February 13, 2010
It's going to snow again here...I'm really ready for spring. And I know you all are feeling the same. Has everyone had enough snow? I say, "Absolutely!!!"
A bit of show and tell here today. I've had these pictures for almost a month....it's about time I posted these on the blog site.
The stockings and A Merry Heart are from Paula at Kelmscott Designs. (The small gold scissors in the above picture is one of her newest products. Aren't they sweet?)
She writes, "In 2009 I actually had time to stitch and I was able to do 5 of your lovely stockings. They are all stitched on 40 ct Vintage Sand Dune, so I love that they are 25% smaller and have a vintage/antique look. You will notice that I have used my mother of pearl round rings at the top as these will hang on a gold metal ornament tree. As much as I enjoy finishing, due to limited time, I brought these down to AZ (where we winter) and there is a fantastic finisher Carol Wilson - firstname.lastname@example.org here in Mesa and she did a wonderful job.
The next 5 pictures are from a stitching group called Kindred Spirits. They had a "Blackbird Designs Day." Just wish Barb and I could have been there. I could'nt find their e-mail in my file....so I have no details on the pictures. If these are yours send me an e-mail and I will label them correctly. Barb and I are honored anyone would want to have a Blackbird Day....and to have so many fabulous projects ...it just takes our breath away. (Wish it would take my hips away...but that's another story!)
The above quilt is from our Home Sweet Home quilt book.
The above small quilt is from our book Small Favorites for All Seasons.
This quilt is from Quilting the Garden.
Look at all the cross stitch lined up on the window sills! This group has really been busy!
I love the picture below....More cross stitch and they even brought their own hedge apples.
I just hope those aren't for snacks....cookies would have been my choice.
She writes, "I hope everything is ok for you and you are not under the snow. For us, it is quite different since it is snowing constantly !!!! So in order to cheer up, I have finished and sew the pattern c'est la saison pour être joyeux !!!! I have read you are publishing a new leaflet, I am looking forwards buying it. Have a nice week-end."
Nina sent the two pictures above.
She writes, "I would like to show you my two pieces, Love Letters and Sweet Heart. I have finished both as an ornaments. Love Letters was hung on my Christmas tree and the heart was made as a gift for my friend . If you want you can post on your site/blog of course!"
Click on Nina's name for a link to her blog. She overdyed both pieces of linen.
And last, but not least...here is a "snow" and tell from Barb and me. These two patterns are in the Rewards of Merit series. We are taking them to Nashville. Your local shops should have them after market.
Wishing you all sunny skies and warm breezes!
