Hello to all my stitching friends, blogging buddies and visitors...
how have you all been?
We have been busy here in Pfeiffer land, but a good busy and I wouldn't have it any other way.
I took some time out...
from my model stitching and finishing to stitch up an enchanting little piece that made it's debut at the St. Charles Market.
it was a limited edition piece from Country Stitches ~ With Thy Needle and Thread and designed by Brenda Gervais. I was lucky enough to finish it up today at Tuesday Stitch~in at my Local Needlework Store ~ Fancy Works. My stitching girlfriends got to celebrate with me.
Without further ado may I present:
"Forget Me Not Sampler"
"Forget Me Not Sampler"
Designed by: Country Stitches ~ With Thy Needle and Thread
stitched on: 35 ct. "distressed" cream linen
stitched with: Weeks Dye Works overdyed floss
Don't you wish you had a sampler just like mine? :)
I'm going to get this sweetie all framed up as soon as Liz (from my LNS) and I pick out the perfect frame to fit this sweet little sampler.
I've stitched two other samplers from Brenda Gervais and each time I have fallen in love with her a little bit more :) I don't know if my followers remember, but I stitched:
"J.M. Gardner Reproduction Sampler"
Today I ordered at my LNS another reproduction sampler from Country Stitches ~ With Thy Needle and Thread, because I thought... I have a good thing going here, why stop?!
You see, I looked at this beauty when it was featured with peeks on Brenda's blog and I thought hard about it when it came out earlier this year...but you know, I just never got around to purchasing it. So today I bit the bullet and ordered:
As my teenage daughter loves to say YOLO!
(You Only Live Once!)
I also promised Mr. Pfeiffer...
that I would not buy anything today at my LNS except my lunch.
I got out of there only spending $190. That's not bad right? They were things I really needed. I've been really good about stitching from my stash recently. Until St. Charles Market blew my whistles and dinged my bells...
and well anyway: YOLO!
is my new motto...
I'm hopeful you'll get to view...
one of my recent purchases from today really, really soon! Because I told the girls that I was going to have it done by next Tuesday...
Wish Me Luck!
Until next time...
I'll be keeping my hands to work and heart to God, just like always!
Join me :)
Love in stitches,
