Today I framed the Dutch Spot~Motif Sampler. I went with a simple frame in a rusty colored wood. I think it brings out the rust in the design, and it looks okay with the goldish linen that I dyed. Now to find an empty space on the wall to hang it.
You might have noticed the button on the right for my Etsy store. I had hoped to be open for business, but I'm having issues. I'm going to be optimistic and say we'll be ready by this weekend if not sooner. I still plan to give away a needle case~ruler set when I'm officially open.
I recently won a giveaway on Rowyn's blog. This very cool chart made it all the way from New Zealand to Arizona. Thanks so much, Rowyn. I have the thread already in my stash, and I had no plans for it until now. It must have been fate.
For me, the very best thing about blogging are the friends that I've made all over the world. It's wonderful to share a common thread (no pun intended ) with other needle workers. It really is a small world after all.
