My sister posted on her blog that she had ordered a "surprise package" from Stitches N Things, and showed a picture of her loot. I was amazed at what she received, so I decided to order one for myself. WOW!! What lovely items. Here is a picture, which does not do it justice. I received some beautiful blue linen, some black linen, a picture frame, some charts, some books with charts, a thread cutter, two kits, and some specialty floss. Besides this... it all came in a tote. I will be using the blue linen right away. The specialty yarn is something I had on my list for the next trip to the craft store. The tote ----- I had just been wishing for a lighter tote to take to my knitting group on Wednesdays. Taa Daa!!! Here it is! The kits are nice, and one is expecially nice because it is a "beginner's" hardanger. I just might try it. Don't know if my eyes will cooperate, but I will try. I may send the books to my stitching friend in Bolton Landing. Since cross stitch is difficult for me anymore with my eyesight not what it was 20 years ago.

For those of you that do cross stitch... try this little surprise package. It is well sorth it, and such fun to receive.


  1. Wow Sis - - another great haul. Good for you.

  2. Ohhh - - I see a Victoria Sampler Learning Series in the pile. They are wonderful kits and you can learn a lot from them.
