I would LOVE to have the latest issue of "Sampler & Antique Needlework magazine...and have exhausted my efforts to locate it locally. I tried a couple of places online, but they either want payment by credit card (I do paypal)...or it costs a fortune because I am in Canada....I'd gladly pay all shipping costs...etc....if you can help out and will accept paypal. Thanks!! Marion

This is Hallow Eden by Plum Street Samplers...I have had this one done for a while, but just got around to framing it yesterday...I'm pleased with the results!!

I had the fabric on hand (32 count) so went with what I had...I love the colour of the fabric with the thread colours....

Thanks for's a quiet day here today.....

one of those days when I can't get out of my own way! LOL

Take care

A Necessary Post..

Yesterday was my Birthday, and I spent a nice day at home....we will celebrate officially this weekend when my son turns 17.....
all day yesterday though, all I could think of was what a loss the stitching world has endured yesterday, with the tragic death of Lisa from The Primitive Needle . My thoughts and prayers go out to her family at this terribly sad time. I loved her designs, and have one stitched and framed, and hanging in my hallway.
On that note...hug your family...we just never know!!

Take care everyone
