What a cool sampler. I can't believe how you always find the greatest patterns. You must have a 6th sense for it.

Laural said...

Great new start! I have that on my list. Did you see their other giant new one?

Liiiiiinnnnnessssss. I can see why it's boring.

Melissa said...

Your "Eye on the Sparrow" is really cute. I like that fabric. I know what you mean about the boring bits of "My Betrothed". I have finished the bottom part at least and trying to get back into stitching. Period! Wish me luck - there are just so many distractions while I'm home now!

Happy New Year!

Deb said...

Both are great Ranae. I can see why the one piece may be boring to stitch, but keep at it. It's going to be a beauty when it's done.

Margaret said...

I love both pieces! I own the older one but not the newer one. That one may come to live with me too sometime. :D Can't wait to see more!

Dee said...

Someone gave me some advice on boring projects --- do two strands of thread each time you stitch. After you do two strands on the boring project you can move to a more interesting project if you want, but you have to do the two first.

Believe it or not, it works. LOL

The sparrow piece is pretty.

Berit said...

love your new start--great choice on the linen!! :D

As for the "something old" I wouldn't last either on that one!

Christine said...

Happy New Year to you too

Pumpkin said...

Julie said...

Happy New Year to you and your family Ranae

Thank you so much for the lovely card that arrived today, you are very special to think of me at this time of year. xx

I can see why you are torn-- having so many beautiful projects to choose from can't possibly make life easy!

Mylene said...

Happy New Year and Best wishes in 2010!

Lillie said...

Loved that sampler! gorgeous indeed!

Happy New Year and Best wishes in 2010

Suzanne said...

I really love the new piece and the old piece is great too, but I can see why you got bored with it.

Have a happy new year!

Siobhan said...

Ranae, I love that Eye on the Sparrow sampler, in particular, I love the saying. Your WIP of it looks great! Love that My Betrothed Sampler, too. I want to stitch it for my bedroom. I'm sure once you get into the 'meat' of the sampler (ie, away from the boring borders!), you'll enjoy it more. It looks great so far!

Happy 2010!

Oh...oh...oh...I LOVE that relic fabric and I've NEVER seen that patten before. I love the verse...that really struck me! I can't wait to see this one finished.

Eye is such a neat piece, what a fun start. My Betrothed is lovely too, but I can see how it would be slow going. Looking forward to seeing your progress on Villages.
