Dixie Sampler's Spring/Easter Exchange

Just popping in to show the wonderful exchange that I received from Kathy Reichert. I cannot find the card with her blog link, but when I do I will add the link. This was a lovely package that I received and I am overwhelmed at how much time and thought that Kathy put into it. I love love love owls, and Kathy sure did a great job finding treasures with an owl theme.

There was a lot of candy, but I ate the Reese's white chocolate eggs and my children ate the gummy chicks. I love the lollipops from Michael's and so I received a big bouquet of them. Missing from the photo is a fat quarter of owl fabric which I am using for a project.

Thank you so much Kathy, you made my week. Sorry. Blogger won't let me rotate the photos.

Haunted Harvest Exchange 2013

I recently participated in the Haunted Harvest exchange that was hosted by Teri over on the Dixie Samplar blog. My partner was Parsley And she sent such a nice package. There were mellowcreme pumpkins and Werthers caramel apple candies but my two children already absconded with them as soon as the package was opened! I let Terri know that I am wild about owls and Parsley sure did take that into consideration when gathering up items for my package. She stitched a Prairie Schooler owl for me and made it into a topper for a papier-mâché box. She even included the latest owl pattern from Notforgotten Farm called Owl O Ween. Thank you so much Parsley for the lovely package and to Terri for hosting such a nice exchange! (photo shamelessly lifted from Parsley's blog)

Christmas Is Coming...

Hi everyone, long time no post. I fell in my bathroom four weeks ago and fractured some vertebrae in my back as well as did some disk damage all in my lower back. On doctor's orders I have been in bed all that time. I thought to myself, I will get a lot of stitching accomplished-but in all actuality I have spent the majority of the time sleeping. I have been in a lot of pain and have not been able to sit up to do much of anything. Lo and behold last night I felt like working on an ornament so I will show you my progress so far.

Now on to the Christmas portion of this post: Nancy over at The Victorian Motto Shoppe is hosting a Christmas season give away. Click here for more information. Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Help Please

Does anyone have this pattern? It is "A Patriot's Sampler" from Midsummer Night Designs.

Would you consider allowing me to borrow your pattern? I would be very careful with it and would stitch it quickly so as to return it back to you safe and sound. Thank you for your time. Please contact me at

Calling all Stitching Goddesses ...

My husband owns a software company that's expanding this year into the cross stitch market, and he's asked me to post this on my blog in case any of you who love cross stitch would like an opportunity to work in the industry.

Over Two sponsors numerous needle and fiber arts contests throughout the year to promote and support our close-knit community, which includes designers, shops, stitchers, and even our families who put up with our obsession. The current xStitch Open Call contest will award an estimated $20,000 in prizes and raise money for our four-year, $10,000 scholarship available exclusively to the family and friends of needle artists and knitters.

We're currently searching for a Marketing Goddess who loves cross stitch to join our team. You'll be handling all our marketing to shops, suppliers, stitchers, and others using email, Facebook, Twitter, and traditional media. This is a telecommuting position, so your location can be anywhere. For more information, please contact us at

New Mystery SAL

Please join me for a summer of suspense as I host a new SAL for With Thy Needle and Thread's new mystery sampler entitled "Birds Of A Feather". The first installment of the sampler by Brenda Gervais was released last week. Part II will be released on June 10th and the final section will be out on July 10th. This should be a lot of fun for everyone. If you are interested please email me at for an invitation to join this blog.
