So Excited!

 Thank you so much for all of your wonderful comments!  You sure know how to make a stitching gal feel good!!  It was so exciting to read everything you said.  

Above is one of my three million works in progress.  This is June by Prairie Schooler.  I think PS was my first love as a stitcher and I still love them.  I dream of having every chart they ever published and just leafing through them once a day!
 Another exciting development was getting this extremely cool stitching wallet from Natalia at Stitching-4-Joy.
Natalia makes these exquisite wallets to carry your current project in.  She has already made bags and, as another option, you can send her fabric of your choice and she will use that!  My Mom and I went to Shipshewana, IN sometime before Christmas last year and I bought several  fabrics to send to Natalia over the next coming months.  This is my favorite so far!
 So vintage!  So cool!  Natalia's work is beyond compare.  It is just perfect!  You can click HERE and check out her shop.
Again, thanks for the warm welcome back and I will try to keep photographing WIPS and stash!

PS is my first love, too, Laura, and your June sampler is looking wonderful... Great new stitching wallet--Natalia's work is gorgeous!

Laura, I love your progress on June. I love those designs. I have July all kitted up.
Thanks so much for the kind words about my wallets, they really mean a lot to me. It is so much fun to make those little wallets. I agree that your fabric is quite different and I just love the contrast of the outside and the inside :)

Your PS June WIP is gorgeous! I've just finished "May", have yet to blog about it, and am deliberating on whether to stitch "April" next. I always like to have a PS on the go. I think "June2 might well be going on my "to buy" list.

Lovely stitching wallet, great fabric!

So glad you are back to blogging and sharing pics with us. Love it....great wallet fabric! I have never seen that or would have also snatched it up!

I agree with you that we all have so many "wips to do" and like various designers so gotta have it and gotta start it!!!! You go Girl!
