Pineberry Lane prims......

Greetings everyone this fine Sunday night!!!  I hope everyone has had a good weekend and are getting ready for Thanksgiving week....Menus penciled out, plans made for the company that may come....I am getting so excited!!!

As for stitching, I'll start out by showing you the end result and then back track a little....

But first, I want to let you in on a little secret....Last month, I spoiled myself with a couple bobbins and spools from Wendy of Pineberry Lane....In doing so, I shopped her site (Which is AWESOME by the way...) and fell head over heels with several of her most primishly spectacular designs....
Today, I finished up my sewing in the craft room and here's the results...

Bringing home the tree....  and
Merry Christmas Hanging Sampler...
Pineberry Lane

If you take a look at the chart, Bringing home the tree,  you will see the prettiest framed stitcherty with a chubby Santa standing amongest the trees....I saw things a little differently though....

I went from this....


to adding this...


 to this....


to this......
Bringing home the tree....
40 ct PTP scrap linen
specified DMC threads
A Huswife.....strung together with fancy twine and a rusty bell.....


And, to accompany this Huswife, I pulled out my Merry Christmas Hanging Sampler chart from last year and made up the most prim walnut stuffed pincushion...

 Merry Christmas Hanging Sampler
36 ct Natural Linen
specified DMC threads



I love stitching up simplistic designs and hope to take a look at a few more this week... Thanks Wendy for your fantastic designs...They will make a great addition to my Christmas prim basket~~~

Hope you all have a great week~~~

Faye
