Progress on 1888 Ohio Quilt Posey and stashing

On the trip, we found a neat needlework shop called Needlework Cottage. I finally found a pattern clip holder and enjoying it while working on 1888 Ohio Quilt Posey by The Sampler Girl.

At the shop I got several odd cuts of linen, small enough to make Christmas ornaments or 1 over 1 designs.

And this was something I wanted for a long time........Little House Needleworks Home of a Needleworker 2. I got this Quaker cloth 28 ct to work with.

And in the mail , goodies this week include The Sampler Girl patterns with fabric for finishing and the itty, bitty red Kelmscott scissors. Also got the Gingher Cross pattern. Deb was so generous to grab these at her local Joannes Fabrics for half-off and I just know I will enjoy them! Thanks Deb!!!!!!
The pretty little red beads at the bottom, actually got that at The Cracker Barrel and supposed to be for a watch but I will attach with a ring to either my Sarah Ginghers or these red scissors for a fob.

Well, slept till 12 noon after getting in about....ooohhhh....can't remember what time in the morning from our trip. Ren is back from the vet and they have put him on some anxiety medicine called maybe he will gain his composure!!! LOL Not funny, but what a name for a medicine!
Thomas was actually very upset about our leaving for a couple of days and he is usually very gentle and loving. He thus swatted Bodyguard twice last night. He has a little bitty attitude today.
Talk later,


  1. Sounds like you have some great new stitching stash!

  2. Love all the stash you got and the fabric especially. I have a definite weakness for fabric.

  3. Nice stash items ... sounds like you had a little fun shopping.

    As for the Composure, there are some days when I could use it!
