Mystery Sampler Part 3 and some finishes

Is it hot enough for you?? We are at 106 , according to my car mirror thermometer. It is a good day to stay inside in the air conditioning and stitch! Hope you all had a nice 4th of July. And we at Cecilia's want to thank all of our armed forces for their service, so that we may enjoy our freedom!! Our military keeps us safe and protects us from harm, we are forever grateful to them!

Part 3 of the Birds of a Feather Mystery Sampler should be in the shop this week!!! Can't wait to finish it! It is the first mystery sampler that I have ever done and I am so thrilled with the final part.

Got a couple of finishes to show you. Ann is back from Florida and she has been stitching up a storm...........we have to get her stitching framed, but I especially like the wording on this one about stitching. Ann is also stitching a monthly "All Flakes Welcome" - each month has a different snowperson. They are embellished with beads and buttons and cute little carrot noses. i can't wait to see it done!! Holly finished a cute patriotic design by Pat Carson - her designs are always so neat!!

Crescent Colors is coming out with some really neat dyed trims - rick rack in 4 different sizes, chennille cord, 1 inch cluny lace, and 1/2 inch binding tape. The colors are so very pretty - I can think of so many things to do with these beautiful trims!!!

Holly has been BUSY getting ready for our Summer Stitching weekend in 2 weeks. She is putting the finishing touches on all the goodies for the ladies. We will be welcoming Sue Hillis as our guest of honor for the weekend. I know our ladies will have a great time!!!

I am going to add some pictures and get going so I can stitch for a little bit. Hope you are all having a wonderful Summer............stay cool!!!

Take care,

Margaret, Jessie, Amy, Holly, Kacy, Pam, Cindy, and Ann

So excited for the new Mystery Sampler piece. Beautiful finish on the HRH Autumn. What count linen is that?

Thank you!! I enjoyed stitching all of the HRH designs. I used 32 count fabric on all of them. i used the same fabric colors they called for - just a different count.

I love the just looks so huge and daunting!

I enjoyed visiting the shop today, Mon. July 18. I was there with my husband. We are here in Branson celebrating out 41st wedding anniversary. I bought the 3 part Mystery Sampler and can't wait to get started. We both thought the baby was just cute!
