Sunday Stashing

Happy Sunday!
(I usually Link up with Molli, but for some reason I cannot find the post this morning. I will link up later when I figure out what's wrong.)

I love a good giveaway. I occasionally win, which is where most of this weeks Sunday stash comes from.

Early in July, Alison over at Little Bunny Quilts participated in a blog hop for Folk Art Fantasy.
I was playing with the idea of placemats, similar to Alison's, with Sunbonnet Sue. However, I am working on a few projects and will wait on this one. They might end up part of my quilt for Sarah Fielke's Down the Rabbit Hole BOM. We will see.

I also like to embroider and sew, crochet, etc. One of the places I follow is the Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe. Nancy does giveaways fairly often, but since they are very popular, they are also hard to win. I lucked out a few weeks ago and received the lovely Limited Editions box of embroidery thread.
Connie at Freemotion by the River shared some lovely charm packs with me. One she had gotten as an extra with an order and a couple from her stash. She also included a lovely note.

I love the pillows with candlewicking thread. I used to get them from Herrschners, but I'm sure Amazon has them. I love the ones Janlynn makes, they have such beautiful patterns. But I have found the candlewicking thread is easily worn through when sewing and tears apart. I am midway through one pillow and stopped working on it because of the thread issues. My friend Shari also likes these kits and she suggested substituting the candlewicking thread with pearle cotton. It is a similar thickness, but a bit shinier. We will see how that goes when I get back to it.
