Over the Hills and Far Away

NOT over the hill--Over the Hills! Brenda Keyes of The Sampler Company has a new sampler, and I ordered it straight from the British website today (so easy--they take Paypal), the minute after I saw her other new sampler on The Scarlett House (go look if you haven't already--it's amazing and so is all of The Scarlett House's other samplers). It's called Red House Sampler. I struggled with the decision of which sampler to buy, I really did. But as gorgeous as Red House is, I'm already stitching two or three other sampler houses, and stitching a little different subject appealed to me and I wanted just one new chart (this week. Because who knows what will come up next week?) You may remember Brenda Keyes as the designer of, among other samplers, Plymouth Sampler, which I have in my WIP pile. And Church on the Hill, which I have in my acquired-chart stack but haven't started stitching. I like that Brenda Keyes' samplers all seem to use DMC floss.

In the meantime, I haven't been idle: lots of work on "Dorothy's Garden."

Hurricane--or Tropical Storm--Hanna's headed up the coast, and depending on whether it jogs a bit to the east or west, we'll get a bit of rain and wind or a lot, so Pink is checking to make sure the flashlight we keep clipped to the bed frame has batteries.

That is indeed a very lovely sampler. Unusual too. I can see why you just *had* to have it.
You must feel very safe with Pink to help you!

Hi, Glenna! Thanks for the heads up about Brenda Keyes. I'm a big fan, too. Oh, Pink! Can he get more adorable? I think my yorkie, Clara, would love to have a visit! We are thinking this hurricane coming up will hit us in SW FL, on Tues. or Wed....Jessica, Kellan, et. al, will be evacuating to Orlando. My DH and I are staying here for the ride with neighborhood friends!
Hugs,
Deb

Just signed on to your blog, and find it to be interesting and original in many ways. Love your writing style and especially appreciate your obvious talent with the needle. I'll be following your blog faithfully.

Thanks, Glenna for the lovely comment about my samplers. My husband jokes that I'm on a mission to cover every inch of our walls...he's right! I may have to get "Over the Hills" eventually. It is so different. She never fails to inspire me with her designs.
Would you mind if I add your blog to my links?
