Weekly Update


This week I have two small freebies that I've completed. The first is this darling design, In God We Trust by Paulette Stewart of Plum Street Samplers.

The second is Glory by San-Man Originals.

I also had a chance to upload a few of the photographs hubby and I took last weekend while celebrating our 18th wedding anniversary. You can see photos of our visit to the California State Railroad Museum here:

As well as photos of our Tour of the Jelly Belly Factory in Fairfield, CA.

This upcoming week I am also celebrating my blogaversary! What an incredible year it has been in sharing my stitching with you and in making new friends as I visit other blogs. Leave a message here if you would like to be included in my giveaway. Just a few goodies to say "thanks" for stopping by.

Milly,
I'm going to have to go find this chart and save it - it's adorable. Nice stitching! Love the pics of the RR and Jelly Belly. I love trains and old RR's. My father was born in 1904 (He was in his 50's when I was born; I'm not that old!) and we had the Seaboard line run practically outside our door in the country. He talked of them working on it, etc. Brings back good memories.
Jelly Belly is so cute - love the pics they made!

Kristin said...

Joy said...
