Day 7 of Stitch me up with Colonial Needle -Presencia as our sponsor

Good Grief, has there been a full 
moon in your world?

I possess a pretty good disposition most days
but yesterday...well let me just say, 
I have been stitching A LOT! lol
Let's now check on our stitchers 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 we are on our 7th 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!


Kristin @That Other Blog
  YEAHHHHHHHH everyone is here today...

Let's celebrate I am pouring..
I think I am going to have some Kaluha
in my coffee lol

your word verification for your day
you lose soooooo many comments...
( many of us cannot see the words, which means 
you miss out on some very flattering notes)

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
and most creative 

Any girl would love this quilt to be...and she can be any age..
This lady did a lovely ensemble of girls girls girls.....
Lovely blowing in a winter's breeze...

What can I say, this combo with the additional basket of yarn
just screamed " PICK ME "
So my dear lady we did....


What's not to like about this...perfect material to go with a themed FASHiONISTA..
This lady captured a lovely French Essence 

Some very special MENTIONABLE ( s) 
 today will also be in drawing...

This lady chose to make a wee tot into a doll
YOU just want to squeeze her lol


You may find me here this morning, joining this lady with Cyndi's lovely floral runner.. ...
What a delicate setting...We just had to include this , this morning...

And for a lovely chuckle this morning....

Because you just never know when a picnic moment
is going to hit you....love everything about this....


  1. I hope you have a better day. Your hard work is greatly appreciated. Your blog hops bring great joy to many of us, and they nurture our creative spirit. Blessings to you and a peaceful day.

  2. Good morning Madame Samm, my post is up now. I must not have understood how to have it post itself. I would like to blame it on the cold meds, I would indeed, but it may be my inability to do anything one the computer correct the first time. I should have asked you or Jane for guidance but it looked so simple I did not think it would not work. Please stop back by and show me some love! Thank you again for working so hard on all these hops, I have been enjoying the fruits of your labor. Have a great day!

  3. I have been in love with these threads when I found them at a shop years ago...I have a lovely filled basket full of them! I use them to quilt with :-)

  4. I knew the choices were going to be extra hard today so I'm glad you added the "just becauses"!!

  5. Awesome projects - Another great stitching day !!!

  6. A little Kahlua should make for a great day of stitching, though those little stitches might be just a tad crooked. I think I'll need something stronger than Kahlua in my tea when that moon is full in my area, because it brings out the craziness in people. Moving on...great showing of projects today and an totally enjoyable hop around the world. Thank you for all you do to make us come together to share what we create. It's always a pleasure!

  7. There were a lot of wonderful projects today.

  8. Too many sweet projects today to have a favorite! I'm with Needled Mom. Glad you added the "just becauses".

  9. Add some Kaluha for me, last night went well and we're hoping that good news will happen next week! I think a snow picnic is a little far outta my comfort zone but I love those colors in the snow!!

  10. Madame Samm you are so correct today was a wonderful day filled with magical treats.....I am going to go over to Jane's today I hope to put my order in for some of these threads that I am hearing so much about......but for right now I need to head out the door...have a great day and thanks for the wonderful job you and your cheer ladies do, you all are the best. And I so agree with all of your choices today..

  11. Actually I think it WAS a full moon yesterday. These are just adorable. I'd love to try some of those threads and needles myself... maybe one day.
    I often wonder do those little girls have names, the ones we always see in the redwork quilts?
    I know there are a few different ones but not many

  12. I came here first today. Just couldn't resist peeking to see the ones picked today.

  13. Thank you for adding the 'just because'! I've seen so many pretty embroidery projects today.
