Springtime of Youth Sampler

It's finished!  Hallelujah!  It seemed like I was never going to get it done; so many sections were stitched over one, but I put the last stitch in less than a half hour ago.  Hooray!

Springtime of Youth Sampler
Chessie and Me
32 ct Vintage Meadow Rue Linen
Gloriana Silks

Do you love it as much as I do?  This was our sampler from the Stitchville Retreat this past April.  I would assume that it will be available for all to purchase next year.

Don't go away yet, I have one more finish.  I worked on this last weekend while on our road trip to Indianapolis.  It was an easy project to work on in the hotel.

Fandangle in Green
Roz Watnemo, Nordic Needle
Kit - Congress Cloth/Threadworx

It stitched up quickly and went together easily.  Fun, fun.  I have it hanging on one of the door knobs on our entertainment center in the living room.

Thanks for all your kind comments on my recent posts.  I will be "laying low" now for several weeks (aka "trying to get some of my existing projects done!")  Enjoy what is left of your weekend.

I do love that sampler. The stitch used to create the grass and that over one basket of fruit are great, but I especially love the variegated blue thread used for the border. Congrats on your finish CJ in OK
