Update on Heart of America


As you can see, LHN Heart of America is coming along nicely! This has been an easy project to work on; no need for magnification! I'm stitching on 30ct R&R Bed Creek Brown fabric. Almost finished!

I have to share another beautiful finish with you, but it's not mine. Please visit Siobhan's blog to see a picture of her finished and framed Alphabet Sampler from Carriage House Samplings. Isn't it beautiful?

Another fun project can be found at the Blackbird Designs' blog. Alma and Barb are so creative; they just blow me away! Alma made a magnetic needle holder to add to her floss ring and personalized it with a copy of a design that she had stitched and then copied. Oh, you'll have to visit their blog to see exactly what I mean.

Well, I'd love to visit with you more but I'm going to go sit in my chair and stitch! Thanks for stopping by!

Heart Of America is looking beautiful. LHN designs are always a pleasure to stitch.

I did check out both Siobhan and BBD blogs. Siobhan's piece is very impressive and the BBD project looks fun and easy.
