My Weekly Post

Trying to get in here at least once per week so that you don't forget about me!

I finished up the birth sampler that I started last week. I really think it turned out nice and look forward to getting this one framed right away...

What a beautiful birth sampler, it reminds me of Ellen Birdseye. I need to stitch a birth sampler for my cousin. She is expecting her first child in September and I was thinking about a design from SamSarah Designs, but I am having second thoughts.....

Did you change the colors?

Beautiful.... wasn't it you that had a sampler for a birth and death of a baby? I would be interested in finding that pattern. Let me know if it was you, I would like to see it again.
