Back in February, I bought all sorts of wonderful items that debuted at the Nashville Needlework market. You can read about them here. Have I started any of them? Nope. But that hasn't stopped me from thinking of one of the designs that I had passed up. Miss Emilia Poole by Stacy Nash. I kept thinking about the design, but telling myself that I bought plenty and should start one of the new items that I had already purchased.
Miss Emilia Poole kept coming back to mind...
I couldn't decide which I loved more the darling sewing basket or the sweet little book.
Finally I caved and called Jeanne at Country Sampler in Spring Green, Wisconsin.
I asked her to kit it all up for me with everything I would need to create both.
Well, it arrived and did not disappoint!
Look at the lovely colors and textures - hand-dyed floss, linen, cotton, wool, velvet and ribbon - all perfectly matched.
Is it wrong to sit and admire it? :)
I am heading out on a busines trip in a week and am thinking that maybe Miss Emilia should join me.
In the meantime, I might just sit and admire a little while longer...

"Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the Lord:
we have blessed you out of the house of the Lord.
God is the Lord, which hath shewed us light:
bind the sacrifice with cords, even unto the horns of the altar.
Thou art my God, and I will praise thee: thou art my God, I will exalt thee.
O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever."
~Psalm 118: 26-29
