LOTS of support HERE.....for you and you and you....


Welcome everyone to our last day of WE support YOU....
( for me that support will continue as long as I breathe...you can count on that) 


Before I present to you MY GIFTS to some special ladies, I want to thank 
Pat who was our cheerleader for this hop...She was gracious, supportive
 and in so many ways possesses  the necessary cheerful heart you need in this kind of hop..
We are all filled with Gratitude for your kindness...Thank  you!


For all those who participated and showcased their hearts with conviction
and emotion, we noticed.....we felt your devotion to your family and friends..
YOU all were noted for your HEART...


Before we move forward
be sure to cheer these lovely ladies I share my day with..
EVERY ONE of them deserve our cheers...

Feb 11th  


Although my beloved does not need this kind of support
a few of my sweet friends do, so I created these projects with them in mind...

and this  befitting fabric from
and all the dyed pretty floss I used were from 


For those who love x-stitch as much as I do, you will love
the fact that YOU can do this too...Just copy and trace design onto linen
( I used a pencil) and then just embroidered and x-stitch 
gingham patterns, using dyed threads for the shadowing of 
the design...

I came up with a solution to clean my material so any residue
from my pencil will vanish...
it worked....they came out so nicely...
not one trace of anything was left behind...



This  gingham bra-  Tammy Bag.... is for LADY J.... a sweet reminder from me,
that I support her the way she has supported me since I became a so called quilter...
This Tammy bag complete with pearl seed beads , satin ribbon and fabric
from RBD that is so reflective of being a lady...
We have had so many grey days again and with such deep banks of snow, I took
this fine watercolour outside to bring some SPRING into our day...
You can see the snow by the stool "she" is sitting upon...
BRRRRRRR.....
However I am sure it will warm her heart that so many are cheering her on...


Here is the back of J's Tammy Bag....complete with ruffle....


This one is for Lady C, she loves gingham too! And no doubt 
will be reminded of how much I care....
We created this blog hop in both of their honour!


I chose this design to reflect her heart..that big heart that pours so much into her life! 

Her back just as pretty as the front of her Tammy Bag....

And then stitching 2 was not enough, I decided to do 3 more all in weeks dye works floss..
all on white monaco linen... a reminder for someone that there are many who care--Always! 




Thank you all who participated!

Our next hop will be for the BIRDS



Lana is cheering us for this one..
she is so tweet-

  6. Oh my goodness Samm, those bags turned out just beautiful! Love them both...but I am a bit partial to the black one....maybe because it has a C? They are such a pretty show of support for both of these cute ladies; just perfect. I so admire your cross stitching, AND... how funny that we both did three bras....LOL... with hearts too!!! Too funny. Great minds think alike. I love all the gingham, (wished I would have thought of that) sure makes it SEW Samm! Love it. xx~Cori

  16. The Tammy bags are absolutely amazing and the fabrics are delightful (even if Christmas is over). The cross stitch is all beyond words. This hop has been phenomenal. As one lady commented - the outpouring of emotions - wow! I think the folks touched by this disease now have a new group of supports - this community. Many of those were not known to us and now we support them with well wishes and prayers not only for them but also their families who are also effected and affected. I read many, many comments that ladies did not want the hop to end. Thank you for a very inspirational hop, not only with the projects but also with the stories and lessons learned. As always, your projects rock and knock my socks off in amazement. Heartfelt thanks to you and Pat for a wonderful, thoughtful, and thought provoking hop.

  44. Just perfect! I love the gingham cross-stitch; you are just so creatively wonderful. Yes, I did notice that the back of the Tammy bags were as adorable as the front. I really love the picture with the three bras - and the hearts are such a nice addition. Thanks for the fun hop though I had plenty of tears during the time. Remembering is hard but the tears wash away some of the grief and the memories are worth the pain. Support the cause and the girls!

  55. Mdm Samm you are amazing, you did it again...WOWed us all!! I love the gingham Tammy bags and they will always be treasured by Lady C and Lady J. Stitched with heart and loads of love and support. The trio stitching is amazing too...perfect...love those gingham hearts!! This is one hop I wish I could have committed to...I will never forget the day my son came home and told me he had cancer...he was 23 years old in his final year of university. My sister had just finished her chemo and radiation treatments for breast cancer 6 months earlier. It was another tough year...that was 15 years ago and it still seems like yesterday. Thanks for sharing your inspiration and your heart with all of us!! hugs Pauline

  57. I have been ill this week and unable to keep up with the hop. I did however go over to Pinterest this morning and see all the wonderful projects I missed. Each and everyone was a winner. I am sorry I wasn't able to comment on each blog individually but am hoping most of the participants will read this comment and know that I think they all did a wonderful job. Keep up the good work ladies. Thanks so much for sharing.
