Last Birthday Post

I had one last birthday lunch on Thursday.  My stitching bud Jackie had my birthday gift and wanted to take me out for lunch.  We were also going to work on a Christmas gift project.  Jill also came over and helped with the project and the birthday lunch.  We had a great time

 This is what I received from Jackie.  She gave me a Dinky Dye heart scissors, Plum Street Samplers--Brothers Keeper, which I wanted and a bag of sinful Cadbury eggs.
Thanks Jackie:)

On Saturday I received this little gem in the mail from Wendy Jo.  She stitched up this cute fob and the band that is around the spool.  Plus she included the scissors.  Can't have enough scissors!!!
Thank you Wendy Jo.  
Wendy Jo and I will be meeting up tomorrow and I can't wait.  It will be a fun day:)

Here is what I have been working on.  This is a shop model for Country Sampler in Spring Green Wisconsin.  It is a Stacy Nash design.  It is called Grace Bridges Sampler.  It is a fun stitch.  I started this on March 21st and have made some good progress.

In between stitching the shop model I finished up this BBD.  It is Ann's Sewing Tray from the book--A School Girls Work.  It was stitched on 32 count tea dyed linen with DMC threads.  Can't wait to get it framed.

Also did this Trilogy--Secret Egg Hunt.  I have had this one for awhile and since Easter is just around the corner I thought I should stitch it up.  This was stitched on 32 count summer Khaki with DMC threads

One last quickie for the a Lizzie Kate.  This is Peep from Spring Things.  It is stitched on 28 count cream with DMC threads.  

Now I have some more finishing to do.  

This is my first post since blogger made it's changes.  Need to get use to the new changes.  How are the changes going for you?
