I shared last week that the March Stitchery Club patterns will be a little different from previous months.
Instead of the normal six stitchery set, our members will be receiving the complete Simple Alphabet Sampler to play with...
...and when I say "play" with this Sampler, I really mean it!
It's a beautiful project to stitch in one piece, but there's so much more you can do with it.
Like stitching words for special projects...
(the bird is also part of the main sampler...)
(see more of the kitchen towel HERE...)
Use single letters to embellish small items like this sweet fridge magnet frame! I made this as a small house-warming gift for Blossom (Elizabeth) recently...
Included in the March Stitchery Club will be a few frame patterns you can stitch around individual letters as a stand alone piece of art. Here are two of them...
I've also been playing around with individual family initials on a scrap of embellished linen cut from an old shirt...
You are only limited by your imagination with canvasses to display all or part of the Simple Alphabet Sampler.
Do you like how I've used it so far?
This pattern will ONLY be available to Club members.
Why don't you join?
Go HERE to do so - it's very easy, and I'd love to have you along for the journey!
Thank you for all your prayers and well wishes over this spate of weather-related migraines.
I've found the nausea is relieved when I stick to fresh vegetable juices, ginger loaded protein balls, fruit, and freshly made apple jelly/jello (recipe HERE)...
Some belated birthday gifts arrived in the mail this week and they are so pretty I just had to show you!
My precious friend Fee knows me so well, and this gorgeous bundle of pretties certainly made my heart sing.
The tiniest pincushion, a cute as pie felt elephant, inspiration framed and ready to remind me every day that being happy is a choice, and a gorgeous shabby chic style tin that I'm treasuring forever....
A surprise gift from Jan Skinner also left my heart racing.
This exquisite little bear, dressed in a fine J initialed handkerchief, is actually a needle-book!
Isn't she adorable?
Have a joyful weekend won't you?
It's like happiness - choose to find the good and embrace it.
You see, though there is much sadness in my life there is also JOY, and choosing to walk in that joy is life-giving...think about it. xx
I'm praying for each of you today.
