Hi there!  Maybe you vaguely recall my last post about HDF 10 for $12.50?  Here's my selection of 10 silks, came yesterday on a cold and very wet day.  Stitchy mail makes even a drizzly day sunny, don't you think?
 A snap of today's newly acquired stash:
Weeks 35 ct. linen *Straw* ~ lovely *go to often* color,
would have very happily taken a whole yard but.... yikes!
GAST ~ Heirloom Gold
Prim Scissors ~ patiently waited for a free ship offer,
now they're mine ~ yay!

And now the sizzle...  last stop today was the framers, my first sampler finish on linen:
This closeup is the true color of  the linen.
Like the frame?
A pretty good match for that folky look.
Welcome Home GH Sparrow's Song

Wouldn't it be oh so nice if every day was a stash day!!!  Well, a girl can dream...

Wishing each of you a sweet stitchy evening!  My always grateful thanks for visiting dear friends:)

Tootles, Sue

Love you floss picks too.

  2. Beautiful stash -- and lovely lovely framed finish!

  3. wow! those threads and such lovely color. The framed you chose for the design looks great, love it.

    Hope you are having a wonderful week despite of the wet weather.

  4. I was thinking about checking out the threads.....didnt when you posted the first time, but I am now~~ Thanks for showing those colors!! Faye

  5. Love the Sparrow....a friend let me borrow her chart and I really need to start this one! So pretty.

    I just got some 30 ct Weeks 'Straw" this weekend and just love the color!!! I can't make up my mind what to stitch on it...decisions, decisions.

  6. Sue--it looks just wonderful! Aren't you proud of yourself for trying the linen (are you hooked yet)? The frame is a perfect complement to your lovely stitching. I'll bet it looks just great in your home :)

  7. Oh how I need to find this chart and stitch it! I LOVE it and your frame choice is JUST perfect!! WOW!!

  8. Hi Sue,

    Just discovered your blog and have
    had fun browsing through it and
    getting to know you a wee bit.

    Wow! Those threads from Vikki
    Clayton are gorgeous!! You've
    made some great choices there.
    Love the Weeks "Straw" linen too
    and have made a mental note of
    it for my own future reference.

    GH Sparrow's Song is just so
    pretty, and your stitching is
    perfect. And so is your choice
    of frame for this new treasure
    to add to your home. I like
    the change you made to the color
    of the flowers. I've never seen
    this design before and seeing it
    as stitched by you was a nice
    introduction to it.


  9. everything looks great Sue! That frame is so pretty! Love it.
    Love your finish & your new stash! Enjoy!!!

  10. Ohhh, I LOVE your finished sampler! The frame looks perfect with the fabric and your wonderful stitching!
