Hope you all enjoyed a great holiday weekend!
Mine didn't quite go as planned.
A weekend of yardwork and gardening was on my agenda,
however mother nature put a wrench into that...
We had 10" of rain in 48 hours...so much for yardwork and gardening!
1500 homes/businesses in our town have flooded basements, we are one of them. When I woke Sunday or maybe it was Monday...I could hear running water in the basement...it was water that had seeped in around our egress window and was running to the drain.
Unfortunately, the water has to run over carpet before it gets to the drain.
So, I buried my head in my stitching,
while the dear husband dealt with the shop-vac and soggy basement....
On a brighter note,
I did get a lot of stitching done on the Summer Sampler
and wrapped up pattern instructions for my new charts.
Here is a peak at the pattern covers...
If you've purchased our new little book of needles,
the first three pattern covers will look familiar
as I've stitched those designs into
sweet sewing roll.
Won't the Dame of the Needle book of needles be a lovely little needful to tuck into the pocket of the sewing roll?
The inside of the sewing roll is adorned with a blue bunting and floral wool applique...a nice mix of wool, linen, old buttons & cross stitch!
A miniature sampler inspired by the eagle family that resides in our area
along the bank of a little creek bed...
This pinkeep uses a coil of wool felt in the center core, giving the pinkeep a nice, flat "pill box" appearance...looks like a flat little biscuit! The piece measures just 1" tall by 4" across.
Patterns coming soon!
Severe weather is in the forecast today,
praying for no more rain...
Have a good day,
