Hello Blog Friends.
I hope that everyone has had a great Saturday. I got to spend some more time with my new copy of the Micheal and Elizabeth Feller Collection book.
Over the years I have accumulated a large library of sampler books. I love sitting down with them and looking at the samplers. They are always and inspiration.
This one does not disappoint. The pics that I have added are the table of contents. this book is mostly English 17th century pieces. There are samplers, purses, and those fabulous pictorial pieces. As always there is a large sampler chart included in the cover of the book.
The book was $80 and I paid $8.55 in shipping. It is available from different places. I ordered mine from Books 'n More. She has a small sampler book business and usually is at the boutique at Christmas at Williamsburg or Jeanine's Gathering of Embroiderer's in Williamsburg. She always wraps the book so it is opening a present and ships it carefully. If you are looking for a particular sampler book or this one and would like to order from her shoot me and email and I will send
you her contact information. Remember Christmas is coming, you can always let your family know that this is on your wish list :)
I have been struggling to sit down and stitch. It seems that I am having a hard time focusing. There are too many distractions. I am going to try and stitch tonight and catch up on watching this season's first episodes of Haven.
Rich picked me up from work on Friday and we went to see Captain America. Rich really wanted to see this one. I have to say that I did enjoy it. It wasn't too serious and was kind of campy! So there was another night of no stitching.
Rich and I did the errands and grocery shopping this morning. The farmer's market, gas station, grocery store. Fresh corn, yum. I hope it is sweet. Our garden has been vandalized by the deer and other varmints. We are only having luck with green peppers and basil.
That's it from here. Have a great Saturday night!
