Looky what came in the mail today!

My dear and very sweet friend Nancy,
sent me some of her new floss colors, 
fresh from the dye pots.
Along with a little note to make me
smile!
She dyed 18 more colors today that
you just have to check out.
Russets, which I LOVE,
more greens and blues.
I see some floss shopping in
my future : )
Thank you so much Nancy
for the wonderful surprise and
your kindness and thoughtfulness.
 Love ya.

I do have a bit of a surprise for you,
but you'll have to wait till tomorrow.
I'll be revealing my mini sampler
that you saw a sneak of in a few 
previous posts, along with another 
finish.
Yes, I've been busy too :D

I also want to show you
a Stitcher's Finish that 
Bonnie sent me a picture of
 the other day.
 
She stitched "A Bee's Blessing"
on 45ct. linen over 2 threads and then  
walnut stained it.    It came out to 
be 3 1/4" w x 2 1/8" h.
It's mounted on a wooden oval disk
backed with gold wool and trimmed
  with chenille.
What a great finishing idea.
Wonderful stitching Bonnie and I love
the staining too.
   Thanks for sharing it with us.
Many smiles,
~Nan
