Don't Drool on My Blog

Hello friends.  I was away for a couple of days visiting the windy city.  Truth is, it was neither windy or cold, gorgeous blue skies and the sun was shining!  Since I was working while I was there, this is the only sightseeing I did -- here is the view of Chicago from my conference room window:


Before I left for Chicago, I attended the needlework guild meeting on Tuesday night.  One of my friends, Chris (no blog), brought her completed Fruit of the Vine Sampler Huswif.  Chris took the class with me in LaCrosse, WI last October.  Of course, she is a prolific stitcher and finished her stitching almost immediately.  The finishing for the Huswif was done by Tricia at the Crosse Stitchery in LaCrosse.  Without further ado...

The outsides of the sampler and the needlecase, along with the scissor fob:


The insides of the sampler and the needlecase:


And a close up of Chris' beautiful stitching:


I better get busy and get mine stitched!
