House #6 is going to be a brut with the block being stitched solid, yay!
I had alot of emails about the crushed walnut that I use in my pinkeeps.
I am sorry if I missed a response to anyone.
I buy it at the pet store in the bird dept. The bag last a long, long time.
It keeps your needles sharp and clean
I keep the bag in the deep freeze to kill the eggs or worms or whatever
I have never seen or had a problem with it, but have heard of others who have.
Well, I better scoot.
Anna (no blog) is coming from Madison to stitch and do some finishing tomorrow with me, yay!
Keep your fingers crossed I will have some finished finished products to show
If anyone close by wants to drop in, your more then welcome, just email me or call if you have my number

I loved stitching this little freebie up and it went so fast,
just what I needed in this heat wave
You can find it over at Primitivebettys
I stitched with Gentle Arts Sampler Threads
Brandy, Mulberry, Burnt Orange, Avocado, Apple Cider, Garden Gate and Black Crow
on scrap piece 40ct linen that I coffee dyed last night and then made a pin pillow with walnut chips. Yes! I did my chores first thing this morning before I started my sewing machine
And then I got this in the mail from Brenda (no blog) we have been talking for awhile and send each other things. She seen I had started Halloween Rules and came across this and knew it was me.
Here's an up-close, it's the wooden bell pull hardware by Images Stitchery Design
Some of the tombstones say
Quilter Clara, died by a blot of fabric; Slim Sue, pulled her last thread; Fast Jane, died with thread in hand, Netty Needler, knit herself to death
It is so me, huh? I think so too
Thanks Brenda you are the bestest
Thanks for all the suggestions on commenting, I tried and I think I have it down now,
knock on wood!!!!!!
Tata for now
