Beth & Poodle

Each time Beth sends back a sampler model she's stitched for me, she includes a treasure - a treasure lovingly made by her hands and the hands of her sister, Pat (aka Poodle).


She's sent me hand-knit wash cloths in a beautiful snowy white.





Look at this little treasure!!  It's a shirt!  And inside.....


Tissues!!



 Beth has also sent needle minders.  Look at the one above - it's the top of an old wooden thread spool!


And how did she know mother of pearl is my very favorite thing in the world?!

And, are you ready for this?  The last time she sent back a sampler, Beth sent this:


An amazing project bag for my stitching.  It's incredibly beautiful and soooo well made.  It's extraordinary, just like Beth!

Look at the detail:


And, the lining:


Beth has become such a good friend.  She's made me part of her family.  Her grandson's name is Riley and while Beth was stitching this sampler:

I knew exactly what to name it!

Today Beth and Poodle opened an Etsy shop!  Check it out:
www.TwoLimbSisters.Etsy.com.   Beth and Poodle's maiden names are Limb.  What a great name!  

I'm ever so grateful for Beth.  She stitches like a dream, texts me, calls me, emails me, encourages me, and if I slack off, she'll kick my butt!!

Beth sounds like an awesome lady, the shirt tissue holder is so cute, I wish I was as creative - the Sampler you created is so lovely too, can't wait to stitch it.
