Stitching and Exchange Update

My Game Board Sampler from The Drawn Thread has been dusted off and progress was made. I stitched three new squares on Sunday evening while watching the Academy Awards. I'm now working on my fourth - I do like this design. It's going to take awhile to finish, but it will be worth it. Check out the progress others have made on our Game Board Sampler SAL blog.



I was stunned yesterday when I opened my SBEBB Redwork exchange package from Isabelle. She stitched and finished the most beautiful bag for me! The stitching is beautiful and her finishing is superb. She stitched our names and and countries on the backside. Truly a special gift! Along with the bag she sent some fabric for future finishes and some very pretty French overdyed thread. Thank you so much Isabelle!



As for our weather - we are experiencing another snowstorm; it started snowing last night and the snow will continue through tomorrow. Most activities have been cancelled for this evening and everyone has been advised not to travel on the roads unless absolutely necessary. It sure will be nice to have a night at home!

Happy Stitching!
