I'm the proud recipient of a T-Party Kindred Spirit Award! Susan has been bestowing this award for several years and this is how she explains the reason behind it:
"As part of this cozy blogging community...I have come across many people to whom I have similar interests; so much so that I consider them kindred spirits. They are the kind of folks that, if they lived around the corner, I would ask over for an impromptu cup of tea or a spontaneous trip to the flea market. They prefer vintage over new and collect unusual and sometimes silly items. In other words; they 'get it.'"
In her post about the award she has some very nice things to say about Primrose Design. I live about 4 hours from Susan and I'm terribly jealous that she lives so close to Elephant's Trunk flea market. So, I wish I lived closer, too. We'd have so much fun although, since we like the same kinds of things, we might have to fight for the same treasures :)
I recently helped Susan out by drafting a pattern from a very cute tea towel in her collection and she's now offering the pattern for sale on her Kitsch Encounter blog. The design is mostly cross stitch with a few outline and lazy daisy stitches so would be perfect as a first embroidery project for a beginning embroiderer. I used the colors from the original for the pattern but you could easily change that up to match your own kitchen decor.
And that reminds me that I have many more of my own patterns to finish and get up on the website. I'll add it to my to-do list!
