Jenny Bean's Christmas Sampler - Finished!

I'm happy to report that I have a finish to share...Jenny Bean's Christmas Sampler! This was one of my crazy challenge pieces from last year; I probably had about a third of it stitched and decided that I really wanted to finish it.

Jenny Bean's Christmas Sampler
Shakespeare's Peddler
32 ct LL Navy Bean
Sampler Threads

What's next? I think I need to work on one of the many WIPs languishing in the WIP basket. These next three pictures are not the greatest, but will give you some idea as to which designs I'm pondering about tackling next.

The Mermaid Sampler from Shakespeare's Peddler (Dyeing to Stitch retreat piece):


I Sigh Not for Beauty from C Street Samplerworks:


Loose Feathers Autumn from Blackbird Designs...I should probably get this finished since the final part, Winter, just came out...right?


You'll have to stop back tomorrow to see which I piece I decided to work on next!

Until then = Happy Stitching!
