Another wallet of Ann's

Happy 4th of July!  I can't believe how fast summer is moving.   Hope you are all doing well ~ stay safe to those of you in Arthur's path.  I lost yesterday to a food that was fighting mightily to get out of my body but am starting to feel better.  As for Squeak, I took your advice and mixed baby food with cat food and he is eating it ONLY if the ratio favors Gerber.
This is the Ann Wade sampler Needleworker's Pocketbook.  A prior post featuring Ann's wallets can be read here.  In continuing her amazing work, she completed this Amy Mitten project and I asked her permission to share it with you. 


 
 

 
 
That's a lot of work and done so beautifully.  Congratulations on this finish Ann and thanks for allowing me to share it.  A variety of stitching techniques were used and I see a narrow ribbon laced through eyelet stitches. Assembly is all by hand, no sewing machine involved.  This project and other amazing items and tutorials are on the Mitten site (see it here).   Ann sent me a package of wonderful fabrics and goodies that I will show soon.  I can't seem to find my camera and I'm not done admiring my gifts.  I have a habit of handling, holding, squeezing, and stroking gifted stitches.  Yes I'm weird.  I'm like an animal that wants to leave its scent and claim ownership.
Fancy has arrived at her new home and my pears are scattered across the US. I have a lot of finishing to do and am having difficulty choosing another sampler.  Usually a design clicks the last minute but I've got too many R&R's, Essamplaire's, and Scarlet Letter's on my lap along with others.  The big ones ~ Mary Elliott, Sally Fiske, Elizabeth Clayton.  The medium sized are too numerous to mention.  I need some larger pieces for wall arrangement but I am SO not up to large projects.  We'll see.
 
Enjoy the 4th safely!
 
Have a great weekend.
