Jenny Bean is Finished!

Jenny Bean Halloweeen Sampler
Shakespeares Peddler
32 ct R & R Alabaster fabric
Regular called-for GAST threads

After having troubles getting the wrinkles out, I put this project onto stretcher bars to finish it. My goal was to finish it before leaving on vacation, and voila! here it is! I even managed not to lose the notes for the type of fabric I used. There are several large projects on the back burner that I am anxious to start, but more to come on those later. Right now, I have pulled out 4 small projects--Jeannette Douglas' Take Time to Quilt patterns (all 4 seasons)-- and threads to take on the airplane with me. Plus a couple of Christmas ornaments AND Day 5 of Renaissance Designs 13 Days of Christmas. That should give me plenty to do for 2 weeks. :)

I finished this last night while watching Kenneth Branagh in Wallander on DVD. It is from Masterpiece Mystery and I was able to get the DVD's from my public library. He looks very different (older and has put on a few pounds) from the Danish prince Hamlet he played a few years ago. Well, I guess we are all fighting that same battle, huh? :)
