Tis a Gift ...... (166)

Today's Stroll piece is the last gift item I'd been working on. It is Sister of the Needle by The Purple Thread. This was gifted to my dear friend Paola, whom I was able to meet up with in Ocean City for the weekend. It was a complete kit for the pinkeep and so very sweet! Edited....I did stitch this over one but the kit calls for over two.  It was perfect for Paola since we fast became kindred spirits when we first met back in 2011.


I received a few gifts while at the retreat too....I am very blessed to have such thoughtful friends! Paola stitched this for me and her stitching is perfection!!!

 I also received these from a friend......both unique! I just love the beeskep thread keeper and the needle holder is going on my magnetic board pronto! Thank you...thank you....thank you!


I did get a little stitching done last night( the bottom two rows and start of the alphabet) on my SAL and hopefully will be caught up by tomorrow when the next segment comes out. 


Thanks for stopping by and your "twisted threads" of friendship!

  2. Your progress on the band sampler SAL piece is looking good, Stasi. What lovely gifts you received. I love the one you stitched for Paola. Off to check out The Purple Thread as I am not familiar with them.
