I know, two posts in two days...either feast or famine with my wee blog : ) I was looking through some photos of vacation yesterday, this being one--one thing they have lots of in PA is corn--and remembered that I had taken pictures of some cross stitch in my parents' house that I gifted them over the years.
I'd like to say I remember the names of these designs but I don't--I think the blue house pillow was from a cross stitch book. The other pillow is a Prairie Schooler design but I don't know which one. My DD thought it very odd that I was photographing pillows.
Kinda difficult to get good pictures of framed pieces because of the flash/glass interaction, but I took a few anyway. This is the Goode Huswife's 1824 Penny Rug sampler, one of my favorite pieces that I've gifted to someone else. At least it's still in the family : )
and another Goode Huswife piece,
Pennsylvania Quilt Pincushion (I think).
I heard from Mayte that she did receive my replacement BBD exchange (whew) but I will have to wait to borrow one of her photos since I neglected to take one myself.
On to what I'm sure you've been waiting for, the giveaway! I've been on a list-making spree lately and that included a list of my current WIPS and charts waiting to be stitched. This as you can imagine was a bit scary--about 15 WIPS/UFOs and some 56 charts as yet untouched, and another pile of charts of things already stitched. So I've hit S.A.B.L.E., I'm sure...and there are things due to be released at market that I've already decided I cannot live without, SO here's the giveaway--and since this photo will not cooperate, a list:
1) BBD Peacock Pinkeep
2)The Goode Huswife Raven's Roost
3) The Primitive Needle Follow Me
4) LHN's Poinsettia House
5) Carriage House Sampling's Samplers in Miniature
6) Notforgotten Farm's Pennsylvania Pillow
7) La D Da's Mocking Bird
8) Carriage House Sampling's Matter's Choice
9) Carriage House Sampling's Fall's Gifts, and
10) Stacy Nash's Liberty Sewing Pouch.
If y'all want individual pictures of any particular chart on the list, just let me know. I've stitched most, not all, of these. Though I have a harder time parting with things not yet stitched since I always think, maybe someday... some of my others which have been in my possession for years (decades?) will no doubt be offered up later this year. If anyone is interested in this batch, just leave a comment on this post. I will draw a winner in one week on next Sunday. Good luck!
