STITCH ME UP-handstitching hop

Have you heard the STITCH ME UP BLOG HOP, the fun begins tomorrow Wednesday MAY 20, 2013......... If you like handstitching and playing with thread and color, untangle yourself from your thread and hop along to see what everyone has done. 

Mdm Samm asked Debbie from Busy As Can Bee, (who does wonderful redwork patterns, some to buy and she has some for free, be sure to get by there !!!) and myself to draw up something to use as an embroidery challenge blog hop.  I thought about it for a long time.  I tried to come up with something easy for the beginners and yet challenging for the experienced if they chose to do it that way. (Sometimes it's just as nice to do something simple.)  I gave them lots of options so it will be fun to see what the others are doing with all they were given.  Then as icing on the cake, Mdm Samm dropped in some of her cute patterns for us to stitch too.  OH my the fun is about to begin for all of you and all of us too!!!!!!
And if that isn't fun enough, She introduced a lot of us to Colonial Needle and Presencia Threads and their 12 wt finca perle cotton...........oh my,  it has been a DREAM to stitch with and you will love it too.  It is different than floss in many ways........all good!!!.
