Two Finishes ---

Yes, I'm dancing today and itching to start something new. I stitched until late in the evening last night and then a couple more hours this morning and now it is finished. Here it is:





BOAF Friendship Sampler
Sampler/WDW/DMC Threads
36 ct Picture This Plus Legacy Fabric

Isn't it beautiful? When I was finished, I took time to restitch some of the letters with a darker shade of ST Cornflower. In some places, the thread was too light and I just wasn't satisfied. I'm happy with it now! This pattern will be making its way to my friend Diane next week.

Here is a picture of Traveling Stitcher. I finished this last weekend but didn't take time to iron and shoot a picture until today. I still need to attach it to the project keeper and needlebook.



LHN Traveling Stitcher
Crescent Color Threads
32 ct Lambswool

Well that's it for me. Off to play in my stash!

Congratulations, Cathy! Both are beautiful! But I'm sure you are relieved to finish Friendship! As much as I love it now, I was grumbling about all those colour changes at times!

Have fun with deciding your next project. I'm doing the same this morning!
