Friendship Exchange and two shop model finishes

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.

This is the first finish of Mary Ann I've seen, and it makes me appreciate it more! I may have to reconsider this one... Thanks! I like the personal touch, too.
