11.11.11 *EDITED*

The son of our friends in Sarasota, Fl is getting married next week so I stitched a wedding sampler. I was hoping to deliver this during our Autumn trip but, as the trip was postponed, I had to take a chance with the Post Office. I have heard that the gift has arrived in Sarasota; I am hoping that the glass remains intact! The other part of the wedding gift was also 'breakable'; I hope this is also in one piece. I wrapped both the sampler and the gift in tons of bubble wrap which I placed in a box surround by even more bubble wrap. The box was marked with large red FRAGILE stickers. Isn't the date a great day to get married - no wedding anniversary will ever be forgotten!


Part 8 Mystery SAL pictures are arriving daily and how different and beautiful they all are. Thank you for all your lovely emails - I am so glad that those who participated have enjoyed the SAL. Keep checking back for more picture slideshows. The chart is now available to purchase *here* or by clicking on the CHARTS button on the sidebar.

I have fallen slightly behind with the C Mon Monde SAL and hope to finish stitching the last part of the vine on the right hand side tomorrow and will post a picture once it's done.

Thank you for visiting
Take care

    The wedding sampler is lovely! I know that the lucky couple will treasure it always.

    Will you be posting the design for sale one day? I hope so--such a thing could come in handy as the younger ones start to marry.
