Tatiana from Russia shows off her Mrs. Waddelow's Huswif

I can't believe all the fun I'm having with my blog! It is so much fun to open my email box and see what wonderful treats await me.  Thank you.

A couple of weeks ago, I heard from Tatiana who lives in Russia. Tatiana recently completed Mrs. Waddelow's Huswif. She stitched her huswif on 32-count Light Antique Pink linen with Summer Nights (#4045) Sulky Blendable Cotton Thread. Isn't that a nice color combination?
Here is Tatiana's huswif closed.
Here is her huswif opened up to show the embroidery.

Look at the pretty button Tatiana chose.
Look at the pretty fabrics Tatiana chose for the inside of her huswif.  Since she doesn't use threadrings, she decided to instead make a needlepage out of a pretty piece of wool.  What a nice idea!
 Tatiana, thank you very much for sharing these photos of your pretty huswif.  I'm very glad that you enjoyed stitching this design.

Beautiful, I can't wait to start mine, but I guess I'm going to be pretty busy over the next few weeks stitching some of your other pieces - can't wait.

OMW, that is gorgeous! What a sweet treat to not only know that you are loved in other countries, but to see the many talented ladies finishes.
I am off to place an order :)
Have a wonderful Mother's Day!

Ellen, thank you very much, as demonstrated here my embroidery! I really enjoyed working on this organizer for needlework.

The wallets are just wonderful. I wish I could finish them off as nicely.
