A frame job and some Stash

Today I ran over to House of Stitches to pick up the birth sampler:


Thanks for the great job ladies and the suggestion on the frame. It turned out perfect!!!!

Of course I could not resist a little stash shopping!
House of Stitches was having a Workbasket trunk show and I picked up this:


I changed the colors my floss is the antique rose(I think that is the name) and the linen has sort of a greenish tint. I can't help it I am hooked on these colors.
I also picked up this cute little kit complete with linen and thread:



Also this mag:





It has a Nora Corbett Sunflower fairy that really caught my eye!

To all my US stitching sisters and brothers May you have a Blessed, Safe and Happy 4th!!
For those of you who have served our country or have family members that do BLESSINGS and THANKS!!!!

Until next time,
May you be blessed with stitches,
Karol

Nice sampler! It is just beautiful. Great selections of stash, too --- I picked out the Workbasket pattern with the baskets. There were 4 baskets - one of each season. I forget the name. I had seen the pattern before; however, when I saw the model, I bought the pattern immediately!!!!!
