Today Jill and Jackie came over for a day of stitching. We usually would gather on Friday's but some of the girls have been busy. As a result those of us that can gather during the day will try to get together sometime during the week. Well I was pleasantly surprised by Jill with my Friends Through Threads Friendship exchange piece. Since Jill had m name she hand delivered my piece.
Jill stitched this Blackbird Designs piece. I am not sure of the name of the pattern but she changed up the colors of the piece with some threads she dyed. I think it turned out pretty cool.
Thanks Jill, I love it:)
I have been busy stitching for The Country Sampler again. I stitched up this piece which is a Willow Hill Samplings design called--Eleanor Jaegler Sampler.
This is another piece for the shop by Primitive Things, the design is called--Lucy Adams. These were both fun stitches.
I almost forgot about this sampler. I finished is on Sunday. This is Blackbird Designs--Mary Ann Blackburn. I put my paternal grandmothers name at the bottom and the year that she would have been 8 years old. I stitched it on some 32 count coffee dyed linen with DMC threads.
Started on 4-25-2012
Finished on 4-29-2012
Again I really enjoyed stitching this and putting my grandmothers name on this sampler. I plan on doing more samplers and putting family names on them.
Well folks that's about all for now hope your having a great week.
