Hi There Dear Friends! My sweet and sincere heartfelt thanks for your kind comments on my recent Quaker framing.  What a wonderful week this has been, making new friends and discovering new blogs:)

I stitched this small a while ago and finished it up last night cause Mr. Singer was still languishing on the table.

 Heart in Hand ~ Little Pumpkin in the Patch
32 ct antique white linen
DMC floss as charted, one over two
Back finished with overdyed wool, jute hanger

If you've ever visited the Finger Lakes Region, you already know it's simply heaven on earth, and even more exquisite in the summer.  Small cities, rural countrysides, many working farms and good shopping too.  We're fortunate to have excellent fiber resources around the Finger Lakes, so yesterday I carved out some me time and drove to Canandaigua Lake, always a relaxing, close to home treat!  I visited with the always delightful Suzanne at The Liberty Cottage (same place I purchase silk for stitchin), picked up some wool roving and the most sumptuous overdyed wools one could ask for.  Then, I went right next door to visit with Lori at Expressions in Needlearts, picked up some GAST *Wood Trail*, a drab green, but I like it fine:)  My fingers are itchin to get into this yummy wool and do something a 'lil different!

Thx for poppin in and please have a lovely, long and relaxing summer weekend one and all!

Tootles, Sue

PS:  Gentle Reminder ~ always remember to spell check, as I've just discovered (yikes) that I thanked you all for poopin in ~ lol!
