February Mini Cloth Sampler from Elizabeth arrived! Yippee 2!

Pictured above is the mini cloth sampler from Elizabeth, my new swapper friend Elizabeth. Isn't the sampler the sweetest?
Things are coming up roses in our farm mailbox in February!
Oh my....just look at the notions she tucked in for a surprise. If you are participating in the 2015 Mini Cloth Sampler may receive some of them stitched into a banner if you are  the person who I mail to.

An artist can never have too many heart shaped buttons, ribbon and lace. She even tucked me in 'chocolate tea'...what a treat as I don't even know where to find it.
Thank you so much Elizabeth Q.!! It is a blessing getting to know you better and better.

February 2015 - Mini Cloth Sampler Swap (for May O.)

This month a heart theme for February ~ the mini cloth sampler I created for May O. Her name 'May' kept coming to my mind and I literally tied May's name into my stitchin' especially for her.  It's such a lovely name!
'Mayke new friends but keep the old.

One is silver and one is gold'.

Love working with my silver metallic thread! I must find and purchase gold metallic as I know it'll be awesome too. One thing about silver on white...silver isn't very visible in photography. 

Not certain what the red bubbly ribbon is called? Anyone know? My sis Mary gave me a bag of ribbons and there it was. Aren't sisters the best?!!

Gold heart button and silver trinket...

On backside of cardboard trinket...
my blogspot address was added. Sorry not a good photo.
Are you seeing double? Yes! Creating two of the same mini cloth samplers each month I participate in

It was more than the silver and gold thread that ties my heart to the new friendship with May O.
May is amazing. I'm loving mayking new friends like Elizabeth, May and of course stitchin'. 
May's BlogSpot ~

Elizabeth's BlogSpot ~ coming....

Friendship is the 'silver thread' that ties all hearts together.

Happy heart month! You are loved.
