Miss Emilia Poole & a Winner

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...

Thanks to those that entered my giveaway.
There were 21 entries and picked #6 - RoseMary of Virginia.
Congratulations RoseMary!
Your package will soon be on its way!

"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

Blessings, Patti

Tis a gorgeous pattern and a gorgeous kit! I would just look at it too, and probably touch it all and dream until I found time to do it. Love the CS shop. Hope to get back there this summer. Lori

Oh Emilia is in my basket--am eager to start working on her. My buyers resistance went out the window when I saw her even though my shopping cart was full
