On the stitching front - I stitched more on "I Sigh Not for Beauty" last Sunday. It's a large sampler and I'm making slow progress. When the border is done I will post a picture. During the week I was traveling again and took the Shepherd's Bush pendants along with me. The stitching on those is done; I'm going to try to finish them this weekend and then will post a photo.
However I do have a photo to share. On the nights that I was home this week, I worked on the Folk Art Handbook from Hillside Samplings. I completed the stitching this morning and finishing was a snap! (I'm asking myself again - "why didn't I stitch this one sooner?") So without further ado, here's finish #4 on the 2011 Crazy Challenge:
Hillside Samplings - Folk Art Handbook
32 ct linen
Sampler Threads (Black Crow) and DMC
The beautiful hand-painted hornbook is from Liberty Hill. This was a limited edition kit from way back in 2005! First time I've finished a hornbook too!
Thank you all for your comments on my last post. It was great fun finishing off those Lizzie Kate fobs. My daughter and I decided to the drawing the old-fashioned way; we put all the names in a basket and she drew one name. The winner of the four charts is:
A link to my email address can be found in my profile. Please send me your address and I'll drop the charts in the mail to you next week.
Wherever you call home, I hope you are enjoying a wonderful weekend! Thanks for stopping by.
