A Fresh New Start

My pics last night and today are so much clearer. I love the camera. I borrowed the Body Guards's Evidence camera which is pretty darn good for snapping pictures of threads and linen too.........LOL

Ok, ok, I will give it back tomorrow.........LOL Hint: Santa please bring me a camera this year, I have been a good girl, I just know it........

I've gathered my notions and threads that will go on this new piece by The Sampler Girl. It's the Ohio Posey Pinkeep Exclusive. I love the colors. The little shell crosses on the left are not on the pattern but I plan to add 3 of these on the pinkeep. The fabric in a roll on the right is a fat quarter from the Dahlonega Quilt shop called The Common Thread. Fabric is 35 ct Wichelt linen. I found these yesterday, unintentially, but they are made of little shells and in soft colors. Love them.
Paisley fabric from the quilt shop for the backing.

I hope you find a "token of sweetness" in your day today too~~~~~~~


  1. My heart is pounding in anticipation of your starting this gorgeous project! I bet this is the most pleasant picture that Body Guard's camera has shot, and I do agree that Santa baby needs to come down that chimney with a new camera for you.

    I can't wait to see the progress pics :)

    Have a glorious, stichin' filled day :)

  2. Nice finish and great pictures!

  3. Enjoy your sweet new project! Love your hornbook finish too :)

  4. I can't wait to see your new project in the works. The fabric you picked out for the backing is perfect. And I missed your post on your hornbook! Your finishing is perfect and I really like it!

  5. Really great! Glad I found your blog. I'm adding it to my blog roll. BTW, love the music.
