~ An Anniversary and New Stitchies ~

Hi everyone! Tonight is our stitching get together...I just checked my 2008 calendar and yesterday was the one year anniversary of our group. We need to celebrate. We've had the best time stitching together, here is our fourth completed stitchie. I think it's very dear...it's hard for me to choose a favorite. I just love them all. The little puppy, to me, looks like my Lily so I made her collar pink instead of the blue as charted.
This is the stitchie we are starting tonight. We are all anxious to begin Yule Sampler. Plus we are all going to be stitching........
A Quaker Christmas...it's just a wonderful piece. We have a plan, each month, 3 of the evenings we will work on Yule Sampler, plus have homework and on the 4th stitching evening we will stitch on A Quaker Christmas, plus 3hrs a week stitching homework on it. Sounds complicated but it's really easy peasy and working together it's going to be great......well I best get busy. I've missed visiting these past few days but hope to catch up tomorrow. Until then....hugs, Linda

You've picked such neat projects. Are they kits?
It doesn't seem like a year. I know you can see improvement in your work over last year. I think I'm getting better, also.

Linda,
Your finish is wonderful. I love the design. The new one looks very hard to do. Good luck on it and glad you are having fun with your friends.

What a fun group of ladies you must be. I'd love to be involved with your group and doing these beautiful projects. I know very little about stitching, but I have a little beginner kit, which I hope to start soon. Yours is so pretty and I love the little dog. Kathi

It sounds as if your stitching group is a lot of fun.

The projects you finish and work on are absolutely gorgeous.

Hey, if the dog looks like your Lily, I don't blame you for changing the collar colour : ).

God bless.
