For Aunt Mary

I have an Aunt Mary who lives in Colorado.  She wants to read my blog but has a hard time finding it and remembering what the name of it is.  So I tried putting a gadget at the top of this blog so she can sign up to have new blog posts sent to her email.  There isn't any explanation about what the box is for so I thought I should explain.  I'm hoping it works.  If you try it and it works let me know.  Thanks!

Here are some more of the kits I got at Williamsburg that I have finished.  I like them so much.  The round one is an ort container and the big paper clip can be a photo holder or hold some other paper.
I have the matching little book that was in Sampler and Antique Needlework Quarterly started.  Maybe this will motivate me to go back and finish it.  Jackie will have a new kit out that is a carrier that matches this set.  I want it!  This was an easy stitch.
I think I need to make one more batch of caramel corn and I am done for the year.  Maybe some more fudge too.  I confess that I found that I really like the anise flavored springerle that I got from Heidleberg Haus and I ordered some more.  My excuse is that it is only available for a limited time.  I still have some cherry springerle and I like it too but not as much as the anise.  M-m-m-m-m
I was able to get a few French magazines while I was at Williamsburg.

They were only 5 dollars each and I found something I liked in each one.

Another thing I got was this Needleprint chart.

I had been thinking about it for a long time and since it was right there, I got it.
There was an old Lauren Sauer chart that I got:

I guess I kind of collect her charts.  I've gotten many off ebay.
So many neat things!
One week until Christmas.


  1. What SANQ is Jackie's design in?

  2. Williamsburg is such a fun place to visit. Yes, I also have quiet a collect of Lauren's charts

  3. Great projects.
    Glad you enjoyed your time there.
