This weeks Quaker progress~~

A Quaker Christmas
ByGone Stitches
Victorian Motto Sampler Threads
First, I would like to thank all the many people who take time to write comments to me about my posts! It means so, so much to me and I may not get to respond to each everyone of you in a timely fashion but know I feel your smiles and encouragement every time I read them... Thank you very very much~~ ((Hugs...))

It has been a productive week... I have enjoyed the Olympics about every night this past week and therefore have had lots of time to devote to this red Quaker.... Oh, several people have emailed me about the scissors..I found them on Yuko's blog Be-Happy...They are inexpensive and if they are in stock, she is very efficient in getting them to you...go check it out~~

coffee stained 36 ct linen design: 19 x 12

Here is a snap of the entire piece...sorry for the wrinkles in the fabric...If you click on the picture you can get an up close shot and may even see some of my coffee stains I baked into the fabric a few weeks back.......I plan on omitting some of the Christmas words from the original piece and making it my own with family names and such..


Today I hope to finish some finishes back in the craft room...I have one exchange piece to complete and get out within the next 2 weeks...so, more info to follow on that in the future.. Many of you made it to your LNS yesterday for lots of stash purchasing ..... I am so jealous!!~~~ Dont you worry though....I am putting together my list and maybe soon I will burning up my debit card too~~

Here's hoping everyone enjoys the last day of February!~ Think spring...its around the corner~~~ Love to all, Faye

Wow! You've really gotten a lot done. The baked fabric looks fabulous.

Hopefully March means spring!

I love your progress, Faye! When you bake the fabric do you put coffee grounds on it first or coffee (sorry if that is a dumb question!!)...

I love the colour of your Quaker Sampler - it will look stunning when it is finished, and it's such a nice idea to make it suitable for having out all year after all the work it will take!

Oh, the memories of stitching this awesome piece. I stitched it 2 years ago and it is so beautiful in the colors you have chosen and I love your subbing names too.
It was a great piece, hope you enjoy it!
