My last Club Kit for Country Sampler is done and on it's way and I loved it so much I wanted to show you a picture of it.
But....I know some of you that are in the Club like to be surprised when it shows up at your door.
So I thought I would add the picture at the bottom so if you don't want to see it yet don't scroll all the way down.
I had to show you a new picture of Mittens.....she is so darn cute. And turning into a real stinker.
She loves to sleep by me when I'm stitching during the day when Taylor is in school.
In fact she's kind of trying to take over my stitching chair. When I get up for a few minutes and go back to sit down there she is......curled up right in the middle of the cushion.
I think she thinks if she looks really cute then I won't make her move.....and I have to confess that has worked a few times.
And here are a couple finds from our trip back from Notforgotten Farm.
I'm not really a Flow Blue collector.....this is the first piece I've purchased.
But for some reason it just struck me and I fell in love with it.
One of my Aunts collected a ton of it and I was never crazy about it then.
But I think a piece or two will be fun with my collection of white ironstone.
And Mom found the large shaker. She's on a glass kick right now.
Since it has large holes in the silver top I filled it with coarse ground salt and it works perfect.
And how cute is the little silver spoon. It belonged to my Grandma.....my Mom's Mom.
So it's a nice addition to our little collection.
The little mother-of-pearl salt and pepper shakers are another Mom find.
And for the life of me I can't remember where they came from......maybe when we were driving back from Missouri she found them. She found a couple cute little sets on that trip.

Next is the pic of my last Country Sampler Club Kit for the year.
So....don't scroll down if you want it to be a surprise....
This was really fun to stitch.
It's called ~Snowed In Pinkeep & Ornament~
I think the border around the pinkeep looks like snowballs.....
and the house looks like it's covered in snow.....which will be here before you know it.
We're due for a big snow here in Indiana.
And I love how the red threads pop on the dirty linen.
This is my last kit for the year and we'll start up again in January.
As of yesterday Jeanne had just a few openings in the Club.
So if you'd like to join the fun you can give the girls a call at the shop and see if
they have an opening....
Well....I still have a bunch of stuff to tell you and show you.
So...check back again, I have Halloween decorations to show you and a new friend to introduce you to.....and some fun finds to share.
Oh, and I'll have to show you snippets of the antique samplers too. One of them has the cutest little billy goat.....it's adorable.
