DAY 4 of Stitch me Up Blog hop with Colonial Needles Presencia as our sponsor

I bet a few of you were stitching
this weekend!
I know my fingers were very busy
on keys and needle and thread! 

DAY 4  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

Here are our 4th day of  STITCHERS .
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..

Top 2 today are:

Does this not look as fresh as a spring day...this lady's choice of colours and perfect
stitching is a favourite this morning... what a great pin cushion...

OH-La-La, this lady took this embroidered piece and stitched
it in long and short stitches...certainly a piece that reflects some Parisienne Style. 

 Most CREATIVE today

 Shut the front door...will you look at this pillow..
this lady always does amazing work...
wait till you see the rest of her stuff...( ART)

 Yep that is snow...we still have snow..wink...

We hope there will be a few stitches here that will tie us together...
