SAL and parcel sent

Hello my friends.
I have been getting `Sampler & Antique Needlework` magazine for 
sometime now so was delighted to see 
`A Sampler Pincushion Doll Maiden` in # 75.
I could not get `Elizabeth` so mine is `Meloday`.
She was the only one wearing a bonnet hence I 
changed the colours.
DMC 158,472,3051,3041,3820,3052/3053.
Soie d' alger 4634.
SNC Forget me not 081
to match her.

A small start. Now to pick a day each week to stitch
so I can see some progress.

Annette from California Stitcher and two other ladies 
plus myself are working on this as a SAL .

I have joined this years `Christmas in July ` swap.
Today I sent my three Christmas gifts 
to my Secret partner.
I pray these reach her safely and on time.
This is the package before address written.
On the 25th I will blog on the gifts.

Getting as warm as she can be.
It has been quite cold here.

Time to go so thank you for visiting and the lovely comments,
 till next time;
 Happy Stitching,
