A Fun Finish and a Great Mail Day!

I saw a very cute idea over on Marie's blog some time ago and have wanted to do it. I finally found the doll and stitched it up. I did ask Marie if she didn't mind if I borrowed her idea.

from the leaflet A Prairie Year
Prairie Schooler
36 ct. Vintage Examplar
DMC as charted
Date started stitching: 11/7/2011
Date finished stitching: 11/8/2011
Date finishing completed: 11/8/2011


This was so fast and FUN! I am going to find more of these dolls to do more like this. This one will be a Christmas gift.


I received a wonderful package in the mail today from my stitching friend, CathyB. It as a lovely birthday present.



It is a pincushion in an old mason jar lid with a piece of her mother's tatting on top. I love the bright colors! It is very pretty! Thank you Cathy!


I also received the long awaited Part 1 of the La-D-Da Sampler, which I had ordered quite awhile ago...way before I swore to stitch from my stash only. I already have started and can't wait to see how this progresses!

That's it for today. Thanks for stopping by.
Thanks for all the wonderful comments I have received on previous posts.

Happy Stitching!

How cool -- a great idea.... and some lovely stitching and presents.

I can't wait to see your La-D-Da progress -- mind you I'm convinced that you'll have it done by the end of the week. :)
