Day 2 of Stitch me UP and our sponsor is Colonial Needle PRESENCIA FINCA

NICE to see you again...Were you not here
just yesterday- and your back...well
that is worth celebrating...
 As you can see, we have been a tad busy ....
Lot's of stitching has been going on over here....

We are on our next day of 
 Stitches that will leave you  smile, 
stitches that will bring back a memory or two...
and most of all MANY STITCHES that tie us all together...

 We also have something else in  common'
 A love for Embroidery! 

thanks to Debbie and Cyndi for creating some lovely FREE patterns
( for all of those who participated in this hop)
and to our Head Cheerleader in this blog hop....
She loves to embroider as much as she loves to quilt
and she loves to cheer....
( so we let her) lol

By the way, Jane carries PRESENCIA THREAD in her store

Here are our 2nd line up of  STITCHERS today...
Let's see what fine stitches they have stitched up for our viewing...
Be sure to cheer them on....
it's what keeps them coming back!

Our fine sponsor Colonial Needle is our big
feature for this event...WE are using PRESENCIA threads
their needles and we have this lovely 
Heart Shaped Basket filled with goodies.
From day one when I met their President
I just knew he would stitch a few stitches
in my heart....He is always there for us...
And that speaks volumes...

Big heartfelt appreciation to a company that has
the best thread and needles for all of our needs..

For our top 2 today these lovely ladies were chosen...

ohhhhhh is this not the perfect setting for this lady's fine needle work...
a perfect spring look in every fashionable way....

and this lady added a cat and mat to her creative stitchery....inspiring, soft,
very lovely in an old fashion way....the fabric chosen really sent me back to the 60's 
truly inspiring....

And most creative....

Realllllllllly , all of this was hand stitched...stunning it is...
even with Paris landscape you can't help but be pulled in every lovely stitch..
YES most deserving of the CREATIVE award....enchanting!
Tres Paris....
