New treasure and new stash

Last night, I received a wonderful gift from one of the ladies in the quilt group and her husband. They brought me a vintage needlework they found in an old suitcase. Isn't this adorable?! It rhymes in the Dutch langauge and the verse is:

Kom...in de morgen,
Kom...in de nacht.
Kom...uitgenodigd,
Kom...onverwacht!

Which is translated:
Come...in the morning,
Come...in the night.
Come...invited,
Come...unexpected!

I think this is such a sweet greeting to hang in my entrance hall. Thanks so much Jacomina and Oomke!
I received a bit of new stash on my doormat this morning. I got two new charts that I had ordered ~ "Necessities Sampler" by Little House Needleworks and "Silent Sampler" by Rosewood Manor.

I love this vintage piece Heidi, and I think it's perfect to hang by your entrance. How nice of your friends, and their names are wonderful! Nice new stash too - I also bought Necessities Sampler.

Enjoy,
