Almost Heaven West Virginia......(270)

Thanks for the positive comments about my needlework passion--they are much appreciated and it's so FUN to share with other like minded individuals and have enabling conversations.

Today's Stroll piece is from a class I took with Jane Timmers (Of Female Worth) at Salty Yarns in 2010. It was part 2 of a  finishing class (I had missed part 1) and included a lovely wooden box with the state of our choice on it. I was living in WV at the time and chose that. There were also numerous smalls that could be stitched and placed in the box. I did make the little fabric covered book on my own with some cute fabric with an alphabet on it. The red round piece is an old tape measure I had on hand; I glued the USA charm on it and added the ribbon tassel.

 No stitching last night as we went to a seminar on wills and trusts at a local library. I don't like thinking about these things, but it is the smart thing to do and I better understand the repercussions  of will/no will.

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



  1. It took a while, but I got my husband to go with me to make a will right before our children went to college. What a relief. I love all those little smalls.

  2. Stasi all of your smalls are so beautiful and that box is awesome. Great job on all. RJ@stitchingfriendsforever

  3. Love the Quaker styled smalls. Was the box a stitched piece?

  4. Stasi, I love the Quaker smalls you created for your West VA box. The box is precious.
