This is the top part of the Birdhouse Sampler by Prairie Schooler. I always liked this one, but had no place to put it, so I decided to make it into a book cover for my Kindle. I didn't have room for the whole sampler so I cut out about a third of it and changed the bottom a bit to fit the area I had available.

I decided a wonderful way to spend a steamy hot vacation day was to take a trip to ABC Stitch Therapy. What a beautiful shop! I can't believe the thread selection they have. You probably won't be surprised to hear that I bought a few things I hadn't planned, in addition to the things I was hoping to get there. Only 4 though :-) Frosty Flakes, Red House in Winter and Singing the Blues by Little House Needleworks and Hedgerow Birds Project Bag by Blackbird Designs (with the floss and fabric). Also bought some 36 count Iced Cappucino fabric for my Petit Sampling Etui. This is not the fabric it called for, but they didn't have 36 count pearled barley and I thought the Iced Cappucino was better anyway. Picked up several more Crescent Colors for the new projects and asked them not to tell me the total, so I still don't know how much I spent :-) Best vacation day so far!
