Exchange for Rosalie

Hello Friends! Yesterday I received word from Rosalie (no blog) that she received the personal exchange I did for her. Rosalie stated in her likes that she would like to own a pinkeep, a biscornu and one of those jazzed up tins. Well we all know I know all about jazzed up tins, lol!

Here's what I stitched for Rosalie:




Desing motifs taken from "Colonial Dry Goods" ~ Little House Needleworks ~ Diane Williams

stitched in called for DMC on 28 ct. coffee stained eveweave 2 over 1



I definitely am going to make one of these or at least stitch Colonial Dry Goods for myself in the near future (ha, ha, ha). I just fell in love with the design while I stitched this one and it wasn't necessarily on the top of my list before then, I liked it but didn't love it...you know what I mean.
Thanks for all the well wishes on the new job...today I was scheduled for the physical and drug screen...OH JOY.....
Hope you all have a Happy Easter...the bunny's been busy at our house :)
Until next time....stitch with joy!

  21. What a fun tin you made for her, that was a perfect design for the top. Also, the fob you did for Diane of LHN was beautiful. I'm so envious of how detailed your work is and how lovely your finishing. Good luck with the new job, you're going to be a very busy lady.
