A Butterfly, a Bird, and a Cow

Stitching a little bit every night on this. I've made good progress, but I have a lot more to go. Fun, fun!

Loving Every Stitch

I wish I had more time to spend stitching. The colors really pop on this linen!

Border Success

Tonight, while watching the closing ceremonies for the Olympics, I put the border in. My mission was two-fold - I had about eight extra inches of linen on the right side that I wanted to cut off. I stitch in hand and wanted to eliminate the extra bulk/weight. I wasn't brave enough to cut until I had that border stitched! Second, it just always feels good to know that your border matches. Mission accomplished!

Looking forward to continuing to stitch this sampler!

Here's a snap of a plant in my flower garden that is flourishing. It is called Hen and Chicks.

Enjoy the week ahead!

Oops I Did It Again

Yes, I started another new project. I was yearning to work on a sampler. All Creatures Great and Small by Barbara Ana won!

Show and Tell

A week ago at retreat was Show and Tell day. This is my favorite day at retreat because we have so many amazing Stitchers in our guild. Here are some of my favorite finishes!

What fun we had admiring all of the lovely stitches that were on display!
