It seems like I have quite the collection of size 4 x 12 1/2 frames.....anyone else????? I really didn't think it would be so difficult to come up with something to stitch in such a narrow width but it was hard. I just finished charting the pattern....I went all out with this one and used 5 different colors of floss including a mauve/pink....which I typically don't use.....now I'm off to chart a really fun sampler can't wait to share it with you.
I love you O Lord my Strength - Psalms 18:1............. Happy Friday! Linda
See what you can do with an empty hot tea box............I call this Marjorie's Sewing Box in remembrance of my grandma who showed me the love for sewing.....I have made this up into a pattern if you are interested.
This is the Animal House Pattern by Wooly Woolen which I have been hooking on for months. I drag it to my girlfriend groups when we hook but don't work on it much at home. We had BINGO hooking this weekend so I got quite a bit done and finished the rest of the hooking this week. It's pressed and ready to be finished. Janice Johnson has some great patterns I recommend you check out her website. I'm lucky enough I get to take a class from her in May. Linda
Just finished this little sampler for this cute,cute frame......for some reason lately I've been into stitching deers. I'm trying to get some things off my table next to my stitching chair and this frame has been sitting there for quite some time....glad to see it in a finished form. It's a pretty small frame (7x3) and has a really neat metal hanger on top.
I've also been busy working on the piece I am going to do for the Prim Sisters club offered through Country Sampler in Spring Green, Wisconsin. Jeanne the store owner contacted me earlier this year to see if I would be interested in being a guest designer for this club. How fun does that sound!!!! Here is the link to the website if you want to read about it http://sgcountrysampler.com/wp/girls-club/ I will offering the kit that comes out this July/August.
I also hope to get a hooked rug finished this weekend when my hooking group has BINGO day. We hook all day and play an occasional game of BINGO (everybody brings (2) $2 prizes. If I get it hooked, I'll be sure to post a picture to share.
Hope all is well with you and wonder if you are looking forward to springing forward as much as I.
I've had this sampler stitched for awhile but finally got it charted and packaged. This sampler is framed in a 9x5 frame and uses three colors of DMC. I just love how simple it turned out. You may purchase this pattern by contacting one of the stores that sells my patterns or by dropping me an e-mail.
I just finished stitching a reproduction of an antique sampler I own....I love the little saying it has.....I am a little thing and very full of sin but Jesus shed his precious blood to make me clean within. I can just imagine a little girl sitting in her chair with big eyes as someone tells her this Easter story.....I will have this charted up soon.
I pretty much love everything primitive. As a child I would spend hours cutting up grandma's old flour sacks and turn them into some sort of creation. I love rug hooking, stitching, reading and whatever else catches my eye. Me and my husband live on an acerage in Nebraska and have a one son.
