Do you remember Susan Kerndt's Holiday Patches? This is what it looked like before. A little progress has been made-see below. I "borrowed" the idea from some stitchers in my local guild and used a beautful cardinal fabric for my main square.
My fingers got sore when pushing the needle thru the fabric, so I took a break. But I am anxious to get going on it some more!
Here is a progress photo of my latest start from Stitching Day. It is Prairie Schooler Country Wise.
Here is my finish! It is Pineberry Lane's Prim Sisters School of Needleworke. I am seeing it a lot lately on blogs :) A delightful and quick stitch. Now I just need to finish it into the hanging pocket.
I forgot to show my little sampler boxes that I got from Marly at Samplers and Santas.
She does beautiful work and these are adorable. Thank you, Marly!
I'm off today to have lunch with DD#1 and to visit my first ever Hobby Lobby! Looking forward to it!
