A lucky turn around

After a crazy negative day earlier in the week I got lucky!  This week  found some blogging goodies I was lucky enough to be the recipient of in my mailbox.....


first from Andrea at The Craft Room, I received Whitman's Tin Sewing Set by Jane Timmers of Fancy Work.  I have the tin already from an eBay purchase so I am excited to add this pattern to my stash.  I like checking out Andrea's work on Drawn Thread designs - one of my favorites!  And look at her card! Wow what a crafter Andrea is.



Next I received from Pat at Southpaw Stitcher the Workbasket flyer - Quaker Cardinal/Quaker Eagle.  Both look like they will finish up cute.   Pat does a variety of different stitches and work.   Check out her progress on the Rainforest  Revisted - looking good Pat.

Have a great week all.  I'm heading for a semi-annual retreat at the beach with my guild at the end of the week and I know I will have stash enhancement  to share next week no matter how much restraint I pledge to have when shopping!  Happy stitching.

Nice win and great stash! I haven't seen the eagle before - looks really cool.

Cool win! Lucky for you...and a nice treat after your car issues. I hate car issues, and car shopping, and anything that goes awry with cars...

Hope you had a great time at your retreat. I missed the spring one I usually attend due to my mom being in the hospital. I sure need one - but have to wait awhile.

I agree on the Ellen Chester classes. Your post makes me want to run upstairs and pull out my huswife. I took that class a couple years ago (did not take the flag - she taught that the next day here too) and finish her up. It was put on the back burner and I don't know why. Need to get that out! I totally agree her kits are outstanding! Looking forward to seeing your progress.
