Pretty Pictures

Hi!

Bet you all thought I fell off the blog wagon...
Today I finally got some pictures of some of my work.
Here they are!

My framed Hillside School of Needlework by Hillside Samplings. I LOVE the frame...sorry about the flash...



Sarah Tatum, progress as of 3/17/06. Sarah is stitched on 36ct Lakeside Linen in Vintage Light Exemplar. Stitched with Vicki Clayton silks.



A Prairie Year. I am stitching this as part of a SAL. It's OVER ONE!!! I am behind but not by much...



And last but not least....My heartbreaker...John Foster 1885 Sampler.
I haven't picked out the hive or the quaker motif yet. I am stitching around them...
I love the colors of this sampler. Stitched on 32ct Belfast Linen in Flax with DMC.



So those are my pretties...what do you think?

Joanie - they all look great. When you were working on Hillside School of Needlework I fell in love with it and was able to order it through the Silver Needle. Haven't started it yet, but seeing your picture makes me want too...

Thanks everyone for your nice comments! I really appreciate them and they spur me on to continue with my work.

John Foster and I have kissed and made up, last night I began the repair work..ahem. He is without his hive and the quaker motif below. Good news though, I finished the left floral basket.

Today I am working on some older wips, a quaker sampler from The Needleworker magazine.

Hillside School of Needlework is just amazing, I really love it. Cathy, you should stitch it, I enjoyed every stitch, even the one's that I had to rip out!

Lana, you must have had some time on your hands, girlfriend to read the ENTIRE blog...sometimes I am long winded but I feel this is my way of conversing with all of you! So that's why I write a lot and I look forward to your comments.
