New start of a Blackbird Design sampler out of their For My Friend book that I got while at In Stitches back in March in Alexandria, VA. The fabric 30 count Sheep Straw and the entire sampler is in 6 skeins of Gentle Art Mulberry.
I really like the dark red for this piece and will be happy to get to the motifs. There are instructions for learning new stitches besides the cross stitch and I'm so ready to get to the part.
This is a great book by Blackbird Designs as there are other goodies tucked in for small projects as well.
Next~~~~~ one thing that came in the mail. I looked on Ebay and saw that a dealer was going out of business and selling stash so I got this for a third of the cost and brand new. It is a BAP but I was attracted to the cute litte fox in it.
This is a 19th century reproduction piece. Mansion House at Fox Hollow.
Of late, I have an attraction to anything fox!

I also caved and got this pair of scissors for my stash. I've been doing quite well with not getting as much stash this year due to financial restraints but this little pair looks lovely.
Anybody interested in maybe adding a pair to their stash? Is so let me know and I might be putting a pair for a giveaway.
This pair is from The Scarlett Letter website.
I get alot of comments through the past few years how lucky I am to live in such a beautiful area.
I can only agree that as any season here, the mountains are beautful and I truly am blessed.
My Kindle is loaded up with a few more Jane Austen books. I have a great love for Pixel of Ink on FB where daily freebies are posted and most of the time to load onto the Kindle (Gracie).
Another FB Kindle site for freebies is Inspired Reads.
Just a couple of funny ones from the local area. :)
Stay in Stitches!
