Mrs Beasley's Sampler Quilt

I have actually been stitching but I have been working on "secret" projects for our "Stitching in the Hills" Retreat weekend at the beginning of August so I can't share them with you just yet ..... however I have received some lovely fabrics from Sandy at Cookies & Cream Craft to make a start on the beautiful Mrs Beasley's Sampler Quilt out of the new Vignette magazine ....  love all the gorgeous Cosmo threads I received too .....

I always love the look of combining patchwork with embroidery so am looking forward to starting this! 

The Tilda fabrics are just gorgeous !

It's always nice receiving a lovely package of fabrics and threads in the mail .... and a lovely note from Sandy !

I know lots of ladies who were eagerly anticipating the arrival of the latest issue of Vignette (Issue 10) and again it has not disappointed with all the beautiful projects in it !   

Lots ave asked where we stayed last weekend ...  here is a card with the main house on the right and the little church house we stayed in on the left ....

Beautiful flowers and exquisite china greeted us for afternoon tea on our arrival !

And another beautiful cookbook (a girl can never have too many cookbooks) arrived in the post .... this is incredible ... I can hardly wait to choose what to make this weekend .....    I hope you are having an enjoyable weekend .... wherever you are ..... now I need to get back to the Retreat projects ........ enjoy your stitching !!
