2009 Finish and Another Giveaway!

It is finally summer and I want to share with you a beautiful M Designs Floral Sampler. This is one of those charts that is much more lovely finished in person than you would guess when looking at the chart. After I finished this one, I bought M Designs Insect Sampler to stitch as a companion piece. Has anyone ever seen that one mentioned (or stitched) on a blog?

I am busy gathering up canning supplies and getting ready to try my hand at canning. I made many jars of homemade jam when the girls were young. But I would really like to learn to can green beans this summer. I used to watch my mother can beans and tomatoes when I was a child. Should I mention that I have actually blown the seal on a pressure canner before in my life? Yes, I didn't have enough water in it--but I think I am ready to try again :)

Also, don't miss another generous giveaway by blogger/designer Paulette at Plum Street Samplers!

Beautiful! I stitched Insect Sampler before I started blogging. It's in my Flickr gallery here:
