Today, June 21, is the first day of summer. What a perfect day to receive my Friends Stitching Through the Seasons Summer exchange from Karen.
Karen stitched a Shepherds Bush design, Scatter Freedom, and finished it is a small pillow. It is just beautiful.
Karen does beautiful stitching and finishing. She also included some very nice goodies.
She sent a piece of banding with a blue decorative edge, a fat quarter of patriotic fabric, a card of different 4th of July ribbons, a pack of #28 Bohin needles (which I have been wanting to try), some buttons and rusted pins and bells which she made, a skein of Belle Soie silk thread and a very cute wooden stick that has patriotic firecrackers on the top. I love all of it! Thank you Karen!
I have to share something I found at Walmart today. This tin of candies that was just calling out my name and I just had to buy it. The tin is the most gorgeous purple color. I will be looking for that perfect something to stitch for the top of it. It is just too cool.
Thanks for stopping and have a great week!
