I absolutely love this piece! I don't know if there was ever a piece that I enjoyed more than this one. I think it is the colors. This picture will not do it justice. It is much better in real life. Thanks to my good friend, Joan, for the frame that turned out to be just perfect.

This piece I did sometime ago, obviously, it kind of got misplaced. It is "Jenny Bean Sampler" from Shakespeare's Peddler. My dad always called me Jilly Bean so I changed mine. This is my first pinkeep as a round. I thought it was going to be alot harder than it was.

I am so happy with all of these finishes. It is such a great joy (and sometimes relief!) when a piece is completely finished.

I started a new project the other day, "Home of a Needleworker" by Little House Needleworks. I knew I have had this in my stash for quite sometime, but when I saw the copyright was 2003, I felt a little embarrassed. Yikes! It's about time I stitch this one up. Here's my progress so far.

Well that's all I have for today. Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Stitching!

Jill - I really need you to come and stay with me for a bit. You manage to finish the most wonderful things. I love your work.
I looked at your Memory Catcher - it is just stunning. I can understand not wanting to repeat it but what a wonderful family history it is.
