This cute ornament goes just perfectly on my "spring" tree in the craft room~~ My dear freind Tommye made it for me....Just because..... And, I'm feeling pretty special!!~~~ It is a Drawn Thread freebie she says...It is beautiful Tommye and I have it front and center~~ Thanks again so very much~~
My BBD Hannah Lovina Joslin sampler is done!!!~~~Yah!! I personalized it with MY name on it and put 1980 in honor of the year we were married.... Come June 7, it will be 30 years!!!!~~ So, I thought it would be nice to label this sampler accordingly... The soft colors in this piece is what makes it so appealing to me......

Here is an up close snap of things.... I absolutely could not put this piece down so guess what I am digging in the basket for next..?... Another BBD, of course~~~ Will keep you posted on what I find~~~ Until then, happy stitching everyone~~~ Faye

The Spring ornament is beautiful on your tree there! Love it!

And the sampler is gorgeous! Is this from the new Honeysuckle Manor booklet? I've almost ordered that book on many occasions and I have another one that I need to start stitching from as well. I'm really tempted to buy this book.
Beautiful colors. I love BBD anything!
