A couple finishes....

Greetings friends~


Wow~~ I let the time really slip from me! Between school starting back, finishing lots and lots for others and doing a little stitching fr myself, turnaround and its mid September.... Yikes!!

I do have a couple finishes to share... Country Stitches had a winner of a kit released this month... I fell in love with the soft colors... Forget Me Not Sampler is prettier in person than any photo can convey~

Forget Me Not Sampler

Forget Me Not Sampler

Wouldn't you agree that is piece is the perfect combination of pale blues and antiqued tans...... All the cotton overdyes and 35 ct creme linen were included.... I coffee stained the linen accordingly the easy included directions. Now, I just have to decide how to finish this goodie... Keep ya posted!

Additionally, I finished stitching my larger project.... Scarlet Letters And All Was For an Appil.... The colors are so vibrant and will be sure to make my sampler wall pop!!

And all was for an Appil

I have contacted Scarlet Letter for a small red sampler to stitch next.... It should hold me until I can decide on my next large SL design....

Lastly, how totally excited do you think I got when I got my hands on this gorgeous sampler???!!!

Paulette Stewart of Plum Street Samplers & Antiques has been at it again... I have all my supplies gathered except for one floss.... So, soon this will be a Fall start for me~~

October brings a couple retreats for me and I am SO excited! And, from the look at what you guys are working on, I'm seeing beautiful ornaments and gifts to finish up in the craft room... Keep them coming!!!

Here's hoping your week is fantastic!

Wonderful finishes Faye - as always. I can't believe how quickly you got through the WTN&T piece. I haven't even touched mine yet. But I did pull out AAWFAA and started working on it again after seeing your finish on the SL blog. You're becoming an enabler! :-)

Your AAWFAA finish is stunning Faye - Can't wait to see how you frame it. Yes I agree Paulette did have some great samplers for market - I added Yuletide Welcome to my stash pile and the Crowns might have to come too. Loved seeing all the finishes in your August post - you are so talented and creative. Hope you enjoy your upcoming retreats. Melody
