Show and Tell

Today, there was actually LIGHT in NY. Lately, it's been rather grey and gloomy, so my picture taking opportunities have been almost non-existant. So, I decided to take advantage of the light and snap some of my previous finishes and a couple of UFO's that I put away.

The finishes are from 1999-2005. I can honestly say that I haven't finished anything for myself in 2005 since the Spring. The last finish I had was Hillside Samplings, Button Sheep. The other finishes were exchange pieces.



Drawn Thread:

ABC Sampler


Random Thoughts. I changed the verse to one of my favorite Psalms.


A Christmas piece:


A Drawn Thread oop:


Shepherd Bush:
A Christmas piece:


A Halloween piece that's got to be at least 10 years old. I need to sew the buttons on and make it into a wall hanging. Didn't I say I have finishing anxiety?


And a Prairie Schooler WIP that's as old as dirt.

Prairie Village:


There are more Drawn Thread and I will have to take pictures of my active Wips over the weekend when I have adequate lighting. I hope you liked my show and tell.

Oh Joanie, your work is exquisite! I love your taste. All your pieces are lovely!

Take care, Nancy

Thanks for sharing these pics. You've stitched some lovely pieces.

Seeing this reminds me that I really must stitch Random Thoughts. It has been sitting in my stash since it was first released, and I have yet to touch it.

I agree! You have great taste. I am a Drawn Thread and Prairie Schooler fan too. Great pieces!
I suppose I should finish one of the three Drawn Thread wips I have neglected.
