Cool Blue

While we know that some areas of the country are experiencing some early signs of autumn, it is still hot as blazes here and keeping cool is not always easy. However, this lovely sampler in her wavy blue frame certainly provides a "cool" place to rest one's eyes, doesn't it? We can almost feel those ocean breezes . . .

A champion is born

As many of you are followers of Vonna, The Twisted Stitcher, it will come as no surprise that she is a fabulous stitcher and finisher. However, we now know that she is a champion stitcher and blue-ribbon winner, as well!

Needless to say, we are so very honored to have framed Vonna's entries, photos of which ~ in all of their be-ribboned glory ~ she has graciously allowed us to share here.

So hearty congratulations to you, dear Vonna! We look forward to many more ribbons, including that "Grand Champion" prize, next year!
