Mustard Seed Manor

Happy Hump Day!!

I'm happy it's already Wednesday, yay, when it feels like Tuesday
I do hope everyone had a fun and safe long Labor Day weekend
We went out for a Harley ride to Wisconsin, as always, for a couple days, but it was almost too hot for the bike. I did get to a couple needle shops, I didn't buy much. They seemed not to have any of the newer stuff.

I have a finish I want to share 
Mustard Seed Manor Sewing Book by Stacy Nash Primitives
Stitched on 35ct 18th Century Rook W/Gentle Arts threads
Brown Check homespun, and wool

Let's try that again with no paw. 

I'm not sure if I have a photo bomber or she's my stitchy protector, she's a sweetie, she always has to be involved.
There was lots of hand stitching on this piece with the front linen piece, the inside black wool, the pocket, the pincushion and the binding, but well worth it.

I received this in the mail last Saturday 
Limited edition kit of Gobble Gobble by Brenda @ With Thy Needle & Thread
Unfortunately it's sold out
It's a very small piece, so I should have this done real soon

I received a call from Lynn's of Madison that my HRH Houses is ready to be picked up from framing. 
I know I waited along time to frame it. The frame matches my HRH Villages.

Happy Stitching!!
