The guild I belong to Tudor Rose Sampler Guild had a secret stitcher program going which concluded in June. We were to stitch two things for our secret stitcher during the year - here is what I stitch for my secret stitcher.
I apologize that I do not have a better picture of it - don't know what I was thinking. Its a freebie from A Mon Ami Pierre, stitched on 40 count linen, trimmed with a silk ruched ribbon. The second thing I stitched was a floss tag to match an Olde Colonial kit that I knew my secret stitcher had bought because she really loves turtles.
I attached a large skein of silk floss that matched the colors of a turtle as much as possible.
Here is what my secret stitcher stitched for me. A BBD Strawberry and
And a lovely BBD House which was one of the extras in the Loose Feather series of from last year.
I love both of them.
I also won a wonderful, patriotic giveaway from Jules. It arrived here right before Independence Day - how very appropriate. I really was tickled by the items Jules included, all packaged in a beautiful box:
The theme of the giveaway had to do with the armed forces, so Jules included candy from the USO, dog tags and a fantastic biscornu of which I have close- ups below. The candy was gobbled up by the kids, I got to hang on to the mints, the wonderful hand sanitizer ( can't have enough of that these days), and the scissors - although it the girls really wanted then. My oldest daughter collects postcard, my youngest got the cute charm bracelet and the boys wrestled over the dog tags . The fab biscornu now sits in my DH's office and you will see why.
Side - It says "Army" so cool
Jules, thank you for such a wonderful package, we all had a lots of fun with it.
My three large projects are coming along - Catherine Theron's Americana Sewing Roll & my Peaceful Kingdom Sampler and ATS. I also started stitching EftH Evil Serpent so I can actually finish something.
It is stitched on a piece of 40 count Zweigart linen that Margit gave me with my own selection of HDF colors. I accidentally reversed the border and alphabet colors, but it is staying this way.
Please give your air conditioners a kiss from me and stay cool.
