Hi there!  Thanks again to all who took the time to enter my 100 Followers Sweet Giveaway, you each made it really fun!

I delighted at picking and choosing Stephanie's autumnal flosses and explained to Stephanie I would post a pic for her ~ so now all of you and Stephanie can view her winnings together.  Sooooo... here's what I came home with:)

GAST ~ Autumn Leaves and Heirloom Gold.

WDW ~ Pecan, Oak, Brick, Havana, Amber, Caper.

Gloves In A Bottle samples.

Three pieces of autumnal calico fabrics for finishing smalls.

In keeping with Stephanie's chosen colors, I also hand stitched this primitive 4" penny pinkeep for her, using overdyed wools and roving for fill.  This project was so relaxing and a joy to make:)

Stephanie ~ Thank you for your patience while I put this treat together, your gift will be arriving soon.  Isn't the expectation of stitchy mail deliriously delightful?  I hope you like what you see and that you can find a use for these goodies ~ chosen and made especially for you ~ congrats again!

Thanks for taking the time to visit and until next time... Sweet Stitchin!

Tootles, Sue
