Finally Finished

Hello Everyone, I have finally finished my Prairie Schooler Garden Gate Sampler from Book Number 45.  It was fun to stitch and went fast. I did this for a friend that has cancer now all I have to do is get it framed.  Now I have moved onto a Brenda Scott Keyes House On The Hill Sampler.  This one is really going to take some time because it is quiet large, here is a picture of it from her site Brenda Keys I love all of her charts and can't decide which one I like the best??;) For my next sampler.

Hope you all are having a good Memorial Day and please thank a veteran today.  I thank my DH he is retired Air Force.

Long Long Winter.............

Hello Everyone, Well for me it has been a long long winter and finally it seems as if we're finally having some spring weather, which is good because it has been really getting me down.  Very windy the last 2 days here but at least warm:)  I have been doing some stitching, first I stitched a sampler, it was a free chart that can be found here The Way To Happiness I did make some changes, at the top there is supposed to be back stitching between the butterflies, but I just didn't like the way it was coming out.  I also changed some of the colors of the floss in the lettering, the floss called for wasn't working on the lambswool fabric. Then I stitched a LHN Sheep Virtue I know I have been slow in my stitching but it has picked up now, I'm working on another sampler from Prairie Schooler Garden Samplers book number 45 it's an OOP chart that I have had for quite sometime.  At the moment not much to see but will post a picture of it soon, I will not let as much time go by as I have since my last post.
