Hey everybody! How are you today? I hope you are having a terrific day. Hello new followers! So glad you joined us.
Take a look at this little beauty. ;)
Yes, another bottle cap poodle magnet. This little sweetie was taken from my own book House & Garden Samplers by Mary Jenkins. I used the Crescent Colours Milady's Teal (variegated grey) floss. I stitched her one over one on 32 ct Antique Pink linen. I sewed on the hand dyed ric rac trim I recently won from Nancy.
If you look very closely at the magnet picture you may be able to see the variegation of the ric rac. Sorry I did not realize the pics don't show it off. It is great. I love it. I put it to use right away Nancy. Thanks again Nancy!
These lovely gifts are from my friend Annette. She is going through a very rough time right now with her mom. Please keep Annette in your prayers. :) You can see one of Annette's personal business cards in front. Can you believe the variegated DMC floss is one I do not have? I have many, many DMC pinks!! I will try the Peach Tea. :) Look at the lovely little envelope it came in. I have never received a handmade card before. What a talented lady.♥
So now that the magnet is done, I am on to another stitch. I know what pattern it will be, just having difficulty picking the linen for it. I am working from my stash. I have to! Then I will need to be off to JoAnn for the missing DMC.
I have just begun a new book, Lady in Waiting by Susan Meissner. So far it is interesting. I am not very far! ;)
More junk weather has begun this past weekend. 100+° temperatures are here for a while with no rain again. :( I hope it is cooler by you. And green! The grass is so brittle here. A yucky yellowish brown.
Getting ready to stitch and praying,
