Beatrix Potter

It got sunny here in frozen Upstate NY so I took a picture of my Beatrix Potter sampler. I am almost done with the upper right motif and I made significant progress on the Passion Flower motif.

Bea has been my focus piece for the last few weeks.

I started a new piece tonight. It's from Heartstring Primitives called I Will Stitch You In My Heart.

Go to Beth's blog and check it out! I love it. I am stitching it on 32ct Flax linen with DMC. I plan on antiquing it and making it into a pillow that I'm going to hang on the headboard of the bed or if it's too big for that then I'll make it into a pillow. I don't have a lot stitched (only a bit of the left border) because the David and I watched a movie on TV. We need some couple time so even though I usually stitch while we watch TV, I didn't tonight.

Wow, I can't believe I've posted twice today!

Thanks for coming by to see what's doing in Joanie's World!!

Lovely to see the progress on Beatrix Potter. Think a pillow for the headboard is a lovely idea
