Victorian Motto Mojo!

I must tell you, I {{{heart}}} Victorian Motto floss and trims! I have been very fortuntate to win two of Nancy's recent giveaways. The first was a lenght of cluny lace and last week, I won 10 skeins of floss. I am estatic! Nancy is so sweet and so very generous!  If you haven't checked out her ebay store, I highly recommend it. So many treasures and so inspiring! I absolutely LOVE everything I've ordered and won from Nancy. Click here to visit the Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe. 

Look at these beautiful threads! Aren't the colors lucious? My hands are itching to stitch with them! I'm thinking a small of some sort. Any suggestions?


As for the cluny lace, I have a little design already stitched that it will be perfect for...


Lizzie Kate's "Summer Basket" stitched on a piece of "strawberry stained" linen. I actually stitched it a number of years ago and it has been lanquishing in a box waiting for the right finishing idea. Eureka! Victorian Motto to the rescue!

Well, it's Saturday night, and you know what that means...bath time! That is, if you're Zoe, the chair hogging stealing cat. Somehow that cat knows when I'm on my way to that chair and races me to it. And of course, she beats me to it! So I end up perched on the edge while she stretches out comfortably behind me! What's up with that?


That's it for tonight's post. I'm so glad you stopped by for a visit. Hope to see you again soon!  Take care!

You are very lucky to win Nancy's thread. I've had to buy mine, lol
That's ok because they are fabulous.
My kitty cat does the exact same thing, or as soon as I get up she gets it, even If I get up for a few minutes, gotta love em

I've never heard of that trim or threads. I guess I must be out of it because they look wonderful!! Congratulations on winning those beautiful goodies!

How fun to win such lovely threads! Pretty Zoe...my Annie hits my stitching chair as soon as I turn on my lamp.

Zoe is soooo pretty! I laughed at her beating you to the chair & making you perch on the edge while she stretches out. Duffy (my canine buddy) shares a loveseat with me, and won't let anybody else sit down on 'his' part of the seat. If he is not sitting on his seat already and sees somebody walking towards the loveseat, he'll run and jump up on it to make sure they don't try to take his spot.

Congrats on the win! I am in love with Nancy's products--they are such nice quality, and she is such a sweet person.

Hello

Just found your blog.

That floss looks just beautiful.

Your cat is so sweet!

That happens to me too - usually I get pushed nearer and nearer the edge of my seat so I give up and move somewhere else!
