Prim Sisters Club and Reflet de Soie

Thanks so much for the nice comments about my framed stitches....I had quite a few emails about the unique moulding used on AoTH and it is actually a discontinued moulding....I just got really lucky I guess...It really does lend itself perfectly to the piece....Thanks again for everyone's nice words..

I wanted to share the latest design of Prim Sisters Club from Country Sampler of WI...I am SO loving this kitted club and since the designs received so far are mid-sized, they are a fairly quick stitch....I have managed to stitch each of the three sent out so far this year....

Lori of Notforgotten Farms designed the July/Aug kit....
The Sowing Sampler
Notforgotten Farms
Prim Sisters Club
30 count Weeks Tin Roof linen
GAST overdyed threads
The overdyes are gorgeous autumnal shades....The verse is just perfect..
"my linen is my soil, my needle is my plow,
my threads are my seeds, and my words I do sow."

I look forward to the Sept/Oct Prim Sisters Club kit to be announced...
Now, all I need to do is finish this one~~~

Also, I have fallen head over heels in love with my new Adam & Eve Sampler sent to me from France by Marylin....She I have become dear friends over the course of time...Each putting thought into a special little something for the other....I recently made up a Patriotic box and sent to her....She adores everything American.... And, she knows of my love for samplers....

I just HAD to put the first stitches in Hannah Jackson 1826...take a look...

Reflets de Soie
36 ct French Vanilla Edinburgh
Au Ver A Soie silk threads

Marylin also included several Sajou goodies.... I LOVE the petite scissors!!
Take a look at those darling thread winders and beautiful pins...
Thank you so very much Marylin for showering me with these wonderful French finds!

I leave you with one more close up of the border in the Hannah Jackson sampler...


Here's hoping everyone has a fantastic weekend!!!
