Such Friendship

I wanted to show you the 
beautiful stitched heart I purchased
from my dear friend and TDIPT 
sister, Audrey of BayRay's Child.
I am always blown away by her
creations and she has the most
amazing sewing skills.     
One day, I keep telling myself
one day.  I could only hope to sew
half as well. 
So anyway, I open my box from
Audrey and there inside.....
Oh my gosh, it was like Christmas
this morning.  Not only did she
send the gorgeous heart pillow,
which I totally love, 
 but an amazing array of vintage
sewing notions.   
I could not believe my eyes. 
How wonderful these will look
in my sewing studio and will go
so well with my sewing collection. 
Audrey, you are a gem and I 
just love you.   I am so touched
by your generosity, but not in the 
least surprised.  You have always
shown me such love and friendship.
    Thank you my friend.
If you have not seen Audrey's work
first hand, please visit her Etsy Shop.
Be ready to be wowed :)

Also, wanted to show you my progress
on the Sophia Waters sampler
  Slow but sure.
I'm stitching this in between all
the other works in process.  I have
been working on 2 new designs.
I am very excited about both of them.
Hope to have them out in April.

          I've also been doing a little side
stitching.  I'd really like to make these
into something special and add them 
to the handmade section of my blog
for sale.    
      The creative juices are always
flowing :)

Thank you to everyone for your
sweet comments on the Lucky Shamrocks
freebie.  My blog friend, Karen,
 did a beautiful finish with the design.  
Check it out on her blog 
if you get a chance.     
Have a great day and thanks for 
Smiles, ~Nan

I've never seen anything like that ~ so different and wonderful at the same time. So sweet of Audrey to send you some wonderful extra goodies too!
Your progress so coming along nicely.
Don't all stitchers have more than one project going at the same time??? Would love to see your finished pieces.

As always, your stitches are gorgeous! Looking forward to your April releases and to see how you finish those 3 in the pic. Love what Audrey sent you too! What looks to be a thread holder has caught my eye... never seen anything like it. Karen did an amazing job of stitching the Lucky! :-)
