Summer Quaker

Hello! fellow stitching peeps,

I finished Summer Quaker

By Rosewood Manor stitched on 28ct truffle linen with Valdani 3 strand

It's a bad photo, it was so hard to capture a good one
It is so much prettier in person

Have a great day!!

Framed finishes TaDa

Happy Sunday!!!

On my way up Spring Green on Thursday, I made a pit stop at Lynn's of Madison to pick up a couple finished framed pieces. I absolutely love them. Lynn used them as models for her store for a few months

Vintage Lace by Rosewood Manor
Stitched on Lupin linen

Anna and I both stitched Christmas Garden by Blackbird Designs

Anna stitched hers on 30ct linen
I stitched mine on 40ct linen

Also take notice... Anna stitched Christmas Garden on the bottom
I stitched the alphabet and numbers

While I was here I finished Turkey Trot by Notforgotten Farms

I also purchased the fabric and trim
So when I get home later I will have a pillow to make... I don't wanna go home

Heartland Sampler

Tomorrow's Heirlooms in Glen Ellyn, Il., hosted a day with Tanya from The Scarlett House last weekend. This is the simply gorgeous Midwest motif sampler she designed just for us. I love it!!

There are five of us gals in Spring Green, Wi. staying at The Country Sampler for the weekend. This is my progress on Heartland Sampler

I have a few of Tanya's design I have to stitch, I bought these to add to my collection. I just started the pinkeep on the Aztec linen.

It was a great day with stitchy friends

Have a great Sunday!!!

Hare by La D Da

Happy Good Friday!!

I have finished Hare by La D Da

Stitched on 35ct beige linen w/GA threads. I wanted a tad bit of color, so I stitched the flower in a muted pink.

Someone emailed about a Land of the Free chart, please email me again, I'm sorry I lost your email.

I will be getting my Christmas Garden and Vintage Lace back from the framers. I let them use them as models at Lynn's of Madison for a few months. I will be picking them up on the way to Country Sampler 2nd floor weekend with the girls, can't wait!

Have a Blessed Easter weekend!!
