Mail art exchange

Have you ever thought about joining a mail art exchange ..but haven't because you have never stitched one before.Don't let that stop you..come on over and give it a try..Today is the last day to sign up for this exchange but there will be more in the future.The only thing I ask is don't join if you will not follow through with your commitment..its not fair to the girl that you stitch for if she doesn't receive one after she has stitched for someone else.

Right now we have a small group but the girls are all very nice and any of them would help you with any questions you would have...But let me warn you mail art can become an addiction..I know from personal experience :-)

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day..My Aunt and Uncle were here with us and as always there were lots of laughs and just a great time..My son was home from college and he brought some different teas for us to try one of them being blooming tea..I had never heard of blooming tea before..I wish I would have taken pictures but never thought of it at the time..So I am including this link for you to go and check it out..It is so cool..at least I think it is.

True Virtue Sampler by Janie Appelbaum


Awhile back I seen on Joanie's blog that she wanted to stitch this piece and she posted a picture..I had forgot about this sampler that I had started so many years ago..I don't know why I put this down..Its a beautiful sampler and I still love it..So this morning I decided to dig this out and find the chart..When you are as organized as I am this can take hours sometimes as my stitching stuff is in many rooms and drawers..I hope someday to have my own little stitching room and at least keep everything in one place..
Well this is my new project for now..I will try and keep you updated on my progress..My son is home from college for thanksgiving break so we are enjoying him..Since he started college we don't get to see him very often..Hope everyone is having a great day with lots of stitching..

yesterday was a nice day to stay inside and stitch..looks like today is going to be another one..they are calling for snow and cold..I wish I could be like the birds and fly someplace warm..

Finished this Prairie Schooler yesterday afternoon. I want to find the perfect frame and try framing this myself..I want to hang this on the wall as you come in my front door..This was a fun and relaxing stitch..I just LOVE Prairie Schooler..

Blooms







Thought I would share a couple pictures of my plants in bloom..The christmas cactus is beautiful..it is so cheerful and makes me smile everytime I walk past it..The second plant is a jade plant I didn't know they bloomed until about 3 years back when this one started ..It is dreary here today and I am going to sweep the leaves off my patio again..I swept it twice yesterday and mulced the leaves twice..We had a bit of rain last night so I will have to wait till the leaves are dry to mulch again..
