You're the best!



 
Thanks to fellow stitchers, she has ordered the Four Angel (Scarlet Letter)
 
and also the Life How Short Mourning sampler from Morning Glory Needleworks.   Both beauties.  The latter is very interesting with motifs used representing death and mourning. Thank you all very much for your help.  (Photo from her Etsy site)
 
I just finishing spraying my hand dyed Sea Glass linen with tan/taupe blended dye and hung to dry. Result - stiff and brown/green.  Looks good.  I was afraid it would be ruined since you are not allowed to wet hand-dyed fabric but the fine mist spray worked great.  I also gave a squirt to Robina.  You knew I would.  But she is still bright and happy.
 
This has nothing to do with stitching but I am a fusspot about (well...everything really) dishcloths and towels.  I found all cotton at Kohl's, Sonoma brand, that I love.  I had the 30% off, they were on sale, so I ordered online and stocked up.  They wash and dry so nice!  And there is another source for the old fashioned string type, including matching towels here.  Don't know if you've ever browsed Mast General Store online, but they have a Made in USA tab here with various items including the cloths and a foolproof ant barrier for your hummingbird feeder.  Haven't had an ant problem in years, but still have to use bleach to remove that black bacteria that forms around the ports.  Some items are mighty pricey, others are unique and reasonable.  I love the No. 3 leather key ring.
 
Taking Carole tomorrow for an epidural and we're hoping it goes smoothly.  She never has good luck with even the simplest of medical procedures, so you just never know.
 
Thanks again to you all for your help!!

Blog readers are the best!
I didn't realize how far behind I was on blogs. I just can't keep up with you.
We just got a sprinkle of rain. I am hoping for more.
Good luck with Carole.
Hugs :)

Hope all goes well for Carole. I'm behind on blog reading so I missed your last post. I love the Scarlet Letter piece and have thought about getting it as a memorial sampler.
