A finish and a gracious thank you!~

I actually did finish Halloween Hornbook Sampler by Plum Street Samplers before Halloween!! Oct 30 it was completed and I proudly displayed it with my other seasonal goodies...This was really a fun piece to make...each square felt like a "mini" project and the colors were so nice! I converted the npi's to GAST and went with 40 ct Sand linen.... I will definitely have this one in a frame come next October!!And I would like to send out a very special "Thank you" to Leeanne of The Nifty Needle!~ I was the recipient of one of her giveaways and I have ALWAYS wanted to do Fredrick by Carriage House Samplings....Thanks again so very much for being so generous Leeanne. This one will definitely be kitted up very soon...I cannot wait to start it!~~

As many of you start to survey your completed stitcheries you are probably like me...YIKKEES, time to buckle down and get some finishes done!!! So......I will pausing for a short while on my larger projects to get my pillows, pinkeeps and ornies completed....
Nothing like it to get you in the holiday mood!!

Happy stitching everyone!~ Love, Faye
