I'm SOOO Excited!!
Nicola Parkman, Hands Across the Sea designs has announced she is releasing independently the Uffendel Sisters Samplers.
This is not the Limited edition initially released.
The sister were together in the limited edition pattern.
There are some differences in the set up of the background information, the designs are the same.
I just want to be able to stitch them because I fell in love with them but, was too late to the dance.
I had tried calling several shops that I knew carried her designs at that time but, to no avail!
It was very sad.
Now happy dance because they will be in my hot little hands possibly by Christmas.
They may come with me on the Stitcher's Escape Cruise this summer.
So when Theresa Verette, Kitten Stitcher was on floss tube talking about the Uffendel's and that her design Jane Philpott has a sister sampler that Theresa owns, I figured I better get that pattern...,just in case she decides to reproduce the sister.
I also love it because it is an Adam and Eve sampler and let me tell you the Adam and Eve are unique.
My friend Arttie has a cottage business.
She makes quilt samples that you see in catalogues for specific manufactures.
She also will quilt for hire...tee shirt quilts and other memory quilts among other quilts.
She has decided to expand to finishing cross stitch.
She asked me if I had anything she could practice.
I also taught her how to make cording.
I had a couple of smalls.
I decided to do last years Little House Needleworks in a bell pull so I'm starting those over
The smalls turned out cute.
Lizzie Kate December is a flat fold.
They all turned out very cute.
Buster's Who Foot
And totally sacked out on the back of the couch.
We will see how much snow we get this week. Bob said a foot.
I think Thanksgviving night we may just put up the tree, get the lights and the beads on.
Have a wonderfule Thanksgiving. Safe travels and hopefully the weather won't be bad where you are.
Keep on Stitching
