I received my PIF from Suzanne. It is Prairie Schooler Carnations. It will look great in my pink basket, which is what she had intended. Thank you Suzanne!





Early Saturday morning we had about 5" of rain in a relatively short period of time. Here are some pictures of the park that is behind our house.





It took quite awhile for all of that water to disappear. Now we are in the middle of a Excessive Heat Warning with a temperature of 98 and the heat index is 112. YUCK!


Thanks for visiting and Happy Stitching!

I just love your ornaments and your Thistle box! Very pretty. And the PIF from Suzanne. It's a very pretty design. And that's a lot of rain to get all at once. You could have sent some this way. We are like a desert here in Michigan.

Your Thistle House Box came out great!

I love your Thistle box and especially Deck the Halls. That one's right on top of my this year Christmas stitching list.

Your finishes and finishing are amazing!! Wow. I can't pick out a favorite--they're all wonderful. Suzanne did a great job, too, on her exchange piece.

Stay cool!

Gorgeous, beautiful stitching.
Man that was some rain. We could use a little of that here and a whole lot less heat and humidity!

Hi Jill ~ Can I ask what kind of box you used to put Thistle House onto? I've been trying to find an actual 'wood' box the right size but haven't been having much luck.

Thank you for any information you can provide.
