"Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head........"

Oh what a day of heavy rain we are having today, although it remains still warm and very humid outside......not especially a day that to venture out, but a perfect day for stitching!

I am a wee bit behind in my posting, but want to thank all of you very dear friends, who sent me so many wonderful birthday wishes. Last week, my sweet friend, Cucki, from South Africa, sent me a lovely package of of wonderful goodies!  I feel so blessed.

                            A precious silver bird charm.
                          Look at these beautiful scissors!

Now for a little more stitching progress on Quaker Christmas II. Stitch by stitch, I am happy to say that there was no 'frogging' this week!  Yea!

It was a bit tricky, trying to find a smooth 'stitchy journey' for these two motifs, but I love the way they look, especially the woven looking triangle in the middle.
Isn't this  motif a beauty?  I love it!

Last week, the 'bug' hit me to go through all of my stitching albums and sort everything, and put the patterns that I don't need anymore into bags to donate.  I think that my stitchy blog friend, Carol, inspired me, after I saw how she beautifully organized her stitching stash.
We bought this cabinet when we moved into our condo, to put near by sewing machine in our family room, so that I could have my stitching books nearby.

We live in a condo, with not a lot of storage space.  This is my little corner in our tiny furnace room, packed with boxes of threads, ribbons, etc.  I keep sorting and reorganizing, but my stash just seems to keep growing!  You know how that goes:)  Tee-hee-hee:)

It is always wonderful sharing with all of you here, and I count myself as very blessed that we have all become connected to one another, through the threads of friendship of our love of stitching.

May you be blessed every day!
