I am going to spoil you with how often I’ve posted this week. Don’t get used to it! But, there’s just so much to show! As I mentioned in my last post, we had our Secret Stitcher reveal at guild on Tuesday. I’ve already shown you what I stitched for my Secret Stitcher, now I need to show you what my Secret Stitcher stitched for me. Look at that beautiful pincushion! Does she know me or what? She stitched Jenny Bean’s Pin Tuffet and included the pretty pins that go with it. I was flabbergasted when I opened the bag. If I hadn’t been wearing heels, I would have run around the room shouting “Jenny Bean! Jenny Bean!” or I could have broken out in song…whichever. I love the little changes she made to it – adding “TRSG” and our initials along with the year. What a perfect way to remember my first Secret Stitcher!
And just to show you how lovely this is, I thought I’d show it with the original Miss Bean in all her Halloween fabulosity. Don’t they make a lovely pair? And of course, I’m sure you remember that Jenny Bean’s sampler was my favorite thing to stitch on ever. I think the only thing that comes close the Primitive Needle’s Earth Sampler. I love that one too. But choosing the Jenny companion was a spot on decision.
And you may also remember the beautiful piece my Secret Stitcher gave me in February. This is With My Needle by Heartstrings Samplery finished into a flat-fold. The gorgeousness abounds. And I love again that she’s included “TRSG” and the year. Such a keepsake.
I can definitely say that my Secret Stitcher spoiled me this year. I am too happy for words.
Back soon because I still have more to show you. Crazy, huh? When it rains…
I am grateful for air conditioning. Holy Cannoli it is hot here.
