Sampler: Red is the Rose finish!!!

I wanted to show off this sampler I finished on Saturday....It was fun and fairly quick to do... Sherri at berripatch.blogspot.com is showcasing several of her designs via her etsy and I think she created a winner with this one!! I know I had fun making it!!

Well, off to the craft room to continue on with my MASSIVE organizing binge I have been on for the last 3 days....labeling fabrics, floss inventory revamp and many other projects that I have neglected...something about the first of the year that puts me in that "nesting" frame of mind. And oh, that little 4 ft Christmas tree in my craft room just might not be coming down! More info to follow soon!~~ Until then, have a good one!!! Faye

Congrats on your finish; it looks great!

I've been organizing too. Don't mind doing it when it's stitching stash!

Merry Christmas!

Wow that finish sure was quick! Great job.

I'm with you about purging...that is my task come the beginning of the new year.

Jackie said...

What a lovely finish!

I'm deep into organizing closets and cleaning grout. There is something about the new year that makes me want to start it fresh and organized. I see others have "the bug" too. I'd love to see your craft room!

Myra said...

Beautiful! The coming of the New Year usually has me organizing and sorting too. It helps me "find" things I didn't know I had! LOL

Hi Faye!!
Found your blog through the Olive Cottage. She had a fabulous question about change in the coming new year and all of the comments were interesting, including yours!

I am glad I came as we share a love of stitching and I just love the new sampler you made. It does look fun!! I will have to check out the designers website.

It was fun visiting!! Have a happy and healthy New Year!!

xoxo

Congratulations on finishing your lovely sampler! It sounds like you are getting in the right frame of mind to welcome a brand new year!

Siobhan said...

What a beautiful finish! Congratulations. Good luck with the organization. I need to do that, too, but am almost afraid to delve too deep into my stash!

Happy 2010!

Karen said...

Beautiful finish! Good luck with your "organization"...I definitely need to follow suit.

happy new year....

Hi Faye!!

Thanks for the comment. How lucky you are to live in a beautiful area for golfing (and everything else. N.C. is on our vacation list!!) My son is a Golf Pro who works in Chicago during the summer and in a warm climate during the winter...He has been in Naples, Fl., the past 2 winters managing the pro shop and giving lessons.

BTW, I see you like Sue Grafton. I just received U IS FOR UNDERTOW for Christmas! Yes!!

Have a Happy New Year! :-)

You did an awesome job on this piece! it's gorgeous!
I have to do some re-organizing as well, but will wait until caitie goes back to the dorm and i get the room back again. LOL she has taken over while she is home. LOL

Charlene in SC said...

Wow - what a quick finish - and beautifully done, too. I need to be organizing, but no, I'm being lazy. I'm thinking of leaving my Charlie Brown tree out, too. Bet we have the same idea for them! Can't wait to see how yours looks when it's finished! Inspire me, Please!

Kellie said...

Great finish!!! Would love to hear more about your organization if you want to share. I need the motivation/inspiration to better organize mine. :)

Carol said...

Great finish! I have the urge to organize my craft room but I don't know where to start. Too scary!

Littlebit said...

It must be the time of year..I'm getting ready to go organize my Green Room..can't wait! Your sampler is so beautiful! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and for your sweet comment.

Sherry said...

thanks for stoping by, love your stitching, your very talented! HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Sherri said...

Wow, you are such a fast stitcher! Thanks for posting a picture of this finish, I'm so glad you like the sampler.

Good luck on your organizing. BTW, I think a Christmas tree in the craft room would be great year round!

Carolyn NC said...

Wonderful finish! Hope to actually see you in person a little more this year :) - hope you had a Happy New Year!

doris said...

Beautiful finish! I'm so jealous that you're organizing. That was my plan, but they'll have to wait. And, as we know, closets and messes wait 'til we get there.
