FNwF

It's a beautiful Sunday morning here and I thought I should post.

 Friday, I started my day working, then a little stitching and I spent a few hours helping set up a Quilt Show. The Saturday Quilt Show was wonderful and I had my daughter take pictures so I'll post them later this week. 

 Here's what I stitched on Friday


This is a kit by Kathy Wall of Woolkeeper called Summertime.  I love her kits - she labels all the wool pieces so there's no time wasted on guessing and you can start stitching sooner, my favorite part.  I still have a lot of stitching to do, many details to add.

In the beginning of June I finished another of Kathy's kits, Laurel Summer Splendor


and in May Laurel Spring Splendor.


As you see I've been enjoying hand stitching.  Visit Kathy at Woolkeeper (click here) and see what other patterns and kits she has. 


I was also in a zippered pouch swap and here's the beautiful bag and wonderful goodies Mary sent me


and what I sent Mary


Please stop by Cheryll's FNwF (click here) and see what everyone was working on Friday Night. Thanks Cheryll for hosting such a wonderful night. I'll be joining you this afternoon with a cold drink and my IPad out on the deck enjoying this wonderful weather with FNwF.  See you then!

Oh, my, somehow I missed those pretty Laurel Splendor mats. How beautiful those are! I love wool work, and that's what has been sacrificed by me the last couple of years. I have some lovely things to do, but I haven't gotten to it.

Karen said...

All so wonderful and some pretty nice gifts too!

Cath said...
