~A Finish and a Swap~

I stitched this Stacy Nash Alphabet Sampler awhile back 
and finally got it mounted on a hornbook that I cut out
of a piece of pine and stained a red mahogany.
I just love lollipop tops, so I decided to put one on
this hornbook.   I thought it was very fitting
for this primitive sampler.

I also wanted to show you a piece that I just received in the
mail yesterday.  A few of us gals from TDIPT Mercantile
recently participated in a Fall Swap.  My swap partner
was Cookie of Curds and Whey
She is one very talented and creative gal.
Here's a picture of the Scarecrow and crow buddie
she made for me.  Isn't he incredible?
I love him so much.  He smells of cinnamon and cloves 
too and it's so wonderful.
Well, I'll be listing my new stitched creations on 
TDIPT Merc tonight around 9:00.
Hope you can drop by.
Wishing you all a wonderful Fall like day.

Happy Fall!
