It's All About Stitchy Goodness

One day, a coworker asked me if I was interested in some ‘embroidery stuff’ her daughter inherited from a relative. She brought it in for me to look at.   The embroidery stuff included:

175+ skeins of DMC floss in flossaway bags, 
some DMC metallic, 
1 spool of Kreinik blending filament...
2 packages of aida, some evenweave, 
and a sheet of perforated plastic canvas...
.
a couple of iron-on embroidery transfers, 
two hoops, needles, needle threaders, a xs kit...
a couple XS of charts, and 3 older XS magazines.
All for $15! Great stashing day!!

Earlier this month, it was Debbie's birthday.  She hosted a giveaway to celebrate.  I was the lucky winner!
She stitched the adorable little pillow.  It's a freebie by Snowflower Diaries that can be found HERE.  The 2016 calendar has lots of photos of the Vancouver area -- very scenic and beautiful.  Debbie also included two packets of flavored tea.... love me some tea!!  Be sure to visit Debbie's Corner to see what she's been up to.  Thank you, Debbie, for EVERYTHING.

In other stitchy news.... I *have* been stitching.  I'm about 3/4 done with the marriage sampler I started back in March.  Although I've been taking progress photos, I can't show them.  I'm also about to start my next mailart exchange... Halloween themed!  By September, I'll be able to show photos of both.

I recently inherited some cross stitch from my daughter's mother-in-law, who passed away earlier this year. What a treasure! blessings, marlene
