Love those Prairie Schoolers

Well I certainly didn't think yesterday that I would be posting again so soon, but since I have some new pictures to share I didn't want to wait.

Today's mail brought the Round 5 Fair Squares Karen K stitched for me. Karen and I are both Prairie Schooler fans and we both chose to stitch a PC design for one another. Isn't this sweet?

Look at the other goodies Karen sent - a pretty "Patrick's Lucky Day" pattern and 5 skeins of green floss, a cool emory board and delicious West Australian wildflower honey and ginger toffee. If you look closely at the picture you will see that I have partially hidden the package with the toffee. That is because two pieces of the toffee have already been eaten. DH & I just couldn't resist. It is YUMMY!!!! Thank you so much for everything Karen.

Today I finished my 'Leap Year' start. The design is "Four Seasons" by PS and is stitched 2/2 on 28 ct country French linen Latte. The finished piece is 5 1/4 inches square. It was a joy to stitch as are all the PC designs.

Hope everyone is having a great week. I'll be by to visit this weekend and catch up on everyone's lives and projects.

Lovely exchange package. The PS pieces you both stitched for your exchange looked great. Your finish of the four seasons looks wonderful too, that is such a neat series.

Hi there! Thanks for sending me anniversary wishes. I have a piece of fabric to give away & thought you might like to know about it. It's a Canadian-based design with maple leaves etc. Have a look. Put your name in the hat!

Hi Margaret,

How lovely to hear from you on my blog. I've been browsing through your blog this evening and enjoying your wonderful stitching.

Your finish of PS Four Seasons is beautiful. Did you use the recommended colours/threads or did you make some changes or substitutions???

You really got a fantastic package from Karen. Her squares are so pretty and I love the little design that she stitched with her name, and the colours that she used to stitch it all.

Mmmmm Toffee. Sweet, buttery goodness! Don't blame you a bit for breaking into the package and tasting a piece.

Oh my. You're stitching a piece that I've had in my stash and been meaning to tackle for a very long time. I'm talking about A Suite of Nutcrackers. I've loved this design and it's rich, bright colours ever since it came out quite a few years ago. Can't wait to see your progress on it.

Thanks again for visiting my blog.
