Prim Sisters Project

Thought I would share my next Prim Sisters project for Country Sampler's Prim Sisters Club.  I just shipped the patterns to Spring Green and the linen should be arriving shortly.   I have called this Sarah Hand's Simple House.  There is still room to join this fun club.  Nan Lewis, Threadwork Primitives, will be preparing the next project for the club.  You can see her first club project here http://sgcountrysampler.com/wp/girls-club/.    Enjoy!

O Lord My Strength

This pattern is now back in stock.  I lost my charting for this pattern when I switched charting software and have not had the time to re-chart.  I've had several requests for it so I made some time and got it done.  Let me know if you have been waiting for it and I will get it out to you.  Linda

Cabin Fever Antique Show

I thought I would share my purchases from the Cabin Fever Antique Show here in Lincoln this weekend.  It is a two day show with about 80 vendors. If the Packers weren't playing this afternoon, I would probably go back and look around again.  Can't wait to stitch some samplers for the three frames and the cabinet is going to hold my floss for my current projects. I seem to lose control of the tags when I'm working on something.  Love my new little black box which I think I will store my scissors and needles in and last but not least a Sampler from 1835.  This sampler is done in some great Christmas colors.  Enjoy your Sunday!

Got me a New Ott Lite!

Best Christmas Present ever...a new magnifying Floor Ott Light Yippee..  I've been doing a little test stitching with it over the last few days.  I didn't really want to stitch something for Christmas as it was almost over so I've moved onto Valentine's Day.  Hope everybody had a great Christmas; we were blessed to spend the week before Christmas in Cozumel and had an awesome time scuba diving, snorkeling and laying on the beach....Now back to the cold weather.

Day 1 was this great applique project by Maggie.

Day 2 was my Simple Times Clutch Purse.

Day 3 was the second project I designed...Simple Times Sampler as well as a great wreath that Jean Elliott showed us how to make from old books.

Day 4 was a cute tree designed by Maggie.

and a few extra shots for your enjoyment.  It was an awesome week and the girls at the shop really know how to make everyone feel welcome!  Great company, great food, great times!

Locket Kits

Well only 10 more days till I head to Country Sampler's Boxwood & Berries in Spring Green, WI.  I am going to be a guest designer for Maggie Bonanami's class.  I have finished putting my kits together and have started to pack everything we will need for my project.  The class has already started stitching on the first kit I have designed; we will assemble the clutch during class.

My second project I will have to share with you after class so the students attending Boxwood can be surprised.   We should have lots of fun and can't wait to see the Wisconsin Fall Foliage.

For many years, I had on my bucket list to go to Boxwood & Berries.  Finally last year I went all by myself and had a wonderful, wonderful time.  I always feel sad for those that can't attend because of prior commitments or just too far to travel so........I wanted to put together a little kit for you that will go along with my Boxwood projects.  My projects center around "a few little things to make your friends for Christmas".  Here is a picture of my locket project. 

Everything is included in this kit to make your very own cross stitch locket or make it fit your needs and cross stitch a different design.  The kits sell for $40.00.  Please e-mail me if interested.  For those of you going to Boxwood, see ya soon!  For all my other blog friends, hope you enjoy my kit.  Take care friends, Linda
