Chessie's Club Sneak Peek !!

I'm in the middle of assembling the first part of Chessie's Club and thought I'd share a sneak peek of the project.

It's designed as a make-do sampler , using 3 different linens , beautiful hand dyed  silk threads and when all 4 parts are completed you will assemble them into one sampler.  It was really fun to design and even more fun to stitch !!

If anyone is's available exculsively from Country Sampler in Spring Green WI.  There still are a few spots left (I think) can see all the details at or call them...608-588-2510  

Well, it's back to work for me, Chessie is giving me the evil eye for slacking off ........hope you all have a wonderful 4th of July weekend!!

Weekend Getaway

About two weeks ago I got together with my stitching buddies up in La Crosse Wisconsin (our "Stitch & Bitch " spring gathering) and also got to venture a bit farther north  on Friday to a delightful Antique Show and wine and cheese party set in an apple orchard. What FUN!!!  We drank, ate, and shopped all surrounded by the beauty of the apple blossoms.

The rest of the weekend we did nothing but stitch, eat, and laugh.....very good for the soul!!!
