And those cute tied up packages turned into this AWESOME display of winnings from Jan of Tree of Life Samplings!!! My giveaway had arrived.....And, let me just say I was absolutely BLOWN AWAY at all the goodies I had received!!!!!!!!! Let me see...Vera Bradley, Kelmscott needle minder, Thread winder and Putford scissors, Stone and Thread darling red star buttons, Picture this Plus linen in "Heather" and "Lupine" (beautiful hand dyed 36 ct linen), 9 gorgeous npi silks and 8 luscious Belle Soie silks...Its a wonder I didn't pass out!!...I think my throat might be a little sore from squealling though................. I cannot thank you enough Jan for this most generous giveaway package.........I truly LOVE every single thing you put in it!!
And, if you have never taken a look at her Tree of Life Samplings designs, you really should go take a look! Her sampler designs are absolutely stunning!
Then I went to pull some fabric for my latest finish......The Sparrow's Song by The Goode Huswife............And, what I saw made me stop and say....Did Moda make this "Red Bird in the Bowers" for my piece?? Amazing that those birds and vines look so much like the cross stitch design....Don't you agree the colors couldn't be better??????

Finally, I ran across yet another WIP in my basket that is over half done..... I guess I am in a nesting mood....This Threads of Gold design called "1738 Scottish Sampler" was just laying there...Where I had put it a good while ago....So, I need to go ahead and finish this one next...I love the rich colors....so I will keep you posted....
Here's hoping everyone has a great weekend and try to stay cool.....Hotter than you know what here in the Carolinas as it is most everywhere right now.............
I have truly been smiled upon lately and I hope I can pass that smile on to others!! Faye
