A Package

In today's mail I received a package from Beth Twist of Heartstring Primitives(you can find a link to her Etsy shop at her blog). I won her pin pillow giveaway on Facebook. If you are on Facebook, become a fan of Heartstring Primitives. Beth's designs are very nice, I have With One Accord, Rachel Holmes 1842 and Ann Taylor and I don't know which I'm going to start first but back to the package:


See that strawberry? How sweet is that? I have a jar of these that my Mamaw made. Yep, the ones she made by hand in a Mason jar like a jar of strawberry preserves.
Here's the front of the pin pillow. I think it's a Williamsburg print, is that what those fabrics are, my mind is blanking at the moment. It'll come to me as soon as I hit publish.


Here's the back.


And here's a close up of the strawberry. Sweet! Thank you so much Beth!




And because it's the day before Halloween I thought I'd share my progress on HAED A Night in the Pumpkin Patch based on the art of C.C. Kuik. My goal had been to have her finished by tomorrow but as you can see that ain't happening. I'm glad I pulled her out because I had forgotten how pretty she is and now I want to stitch on her all night. Sorry the picture isn't any better it was cloudy when I did her photo shoot.

Don't forget to check out Missy Ann's 13 Days of Halloween......

Oh lucky you! Nice prize! And your HAED! I tell you, I'm in awe of anyone who tackles one of their designs. No way could I have the patience to stitch one of them.

Cute pillow! What caught my attention the most was your comment about your Mawmaw's strawberries...what a cute and creative idea. Hmmm, I hope your Mawmaw doesn't mind if I copy that idea some day ;)

Congrats on winning the prize...cute pillow. Your HAED looks good too... I agree with Margaret though, no way would I be able to stitch a HAED.

Oh how cute. I love that little strawberry too.

Unfinished or not that little witch is cute too.

What a wonderful prize! I love the little strawberry - might have to try my hand at some of them one of these days. Your HAED is coming along - she's a beauty!
