~~ Stitching News ~~

Last night was our stitching get together and I'm happy to say Yule Sampler is finished. I'm really pleased with it, but for some reason it just seemed like it took forever to finish. Now off to the framers..I'm hoping I can find a dark, dark green for my frame...just not sure. Any suggestions? Our next stitch is "The Sampler Lady" by LHN......
I love this. She is a sweet little miss and her outfit is so cute. We had to order some of the floss and while we were waiting.....we
stitched on Quaker Christmas, as you can tell I didn't work on mine very much...
I was stitching on my Patriotic Sampler...when I started I had hoped to have it finished for this 4Th of July, but didn't come close to finishing it....it will be ready for sure next year. I'm using an over dyed floss by Crescent Colours called Wavy Navy...I really like the effect. I don't know if you can see the subtle shading but in person it is really looks pretty.

Speaking of 4Th of July, thank you for all the happy wishes and sweet comments....hugs, Linda

They look great. My hat's off to you being able to do tiny cross stitch like that. My eyes wouldn't be able to take it.

I love following your progress on these projects. I was addicted to cross stitch when I was younger and I miss it so much. I enjoy yours so much.

The sampler is really neat. I love the girl you are going to start. For some reason, I just like doing people. Heidi says that is weird, but what can I say. Your patriotic sampler is going to be really nice too. Have fun stitching.
