A bit of Stitchin and Patriotism :)

Well it's time again for the Internation Hermit & Stitch Weekend!
And it couldn't come at a better time.
We've had lots of birthday festivities the last few weeks
and this weekend will be relatively quiet.
Sometimes it's just nice to slow down for a minute.
I just started the Jumping Cat and hopefully
I'll have some progress before the weekend is over :)

I also wanted to show you the fabulous goodies
I received in the Stitched with Love exchange.
You can see the entire gallery here.
It was a Patriotic theme this time around
and look what I received from Jen
(you NEED to check out her fun blog!)
She's an amazing stitcher!
Look at what she sent me!
I was spoiled for sure!!!

Here's a closer look at her beautiful stitching skills!

This is what I stitched and sent to Marjorie.
She loves primitive decor so I tried my best
to keep it in that vein.
I made her some reversible coasters 
using Osnaburg and Homespun fabrics in red & blue
and finished the stitchery in a small pillow with some vintage buttons.

Have a lovely weekend everyone!!!
I know I'll be stitchin' and sewin'
(and cleanin' and cookin'......*sigh*)
