Last week we stopped by Keepsakes, a needlework shop just a couple of miles from our home. The owners are Barb Hils and her husband Joe. Every nook and cranny of this old house is filled with cross stitch goodies.
Approaching the front door via the sidewalk, we passed the cutest cat nestled among the flowers.
Here is Barb, with her beautiful smile, and with My Favorite Things Stitching Basket, Quaker Turtles, and Mrs. Waddelow's Huswif, which she stitched as shop models.
Now here is a close-up. I wish I had taken the needlework accessories out of her stitching basket so you could see them.
Next is a close-up of her turtles.
And last, here is the inside of her huswif.
