2 Finishes, a WIP, a New Start & Coming Attractions!

Finish #1  Stacy Nash's
Country Sampler "Snowed In" Ornament
It came as a kit from Country Sampler's Stacy Nash club.  There is also a pinkeep included that I haven't stitched yet.  See below-

Finsh #2-Little House Needleworks
Melicent Turner
30 ct R & R Olde Towne Blende
Called for Crescent Colours floss

OK-I admit it-I mixed the colors up in the top half a little differently than charted.  It was just too neutral and hard to read for my liking.  I also added another color.  The birds at the bottom were charted to be white and I just couldn't do it.  Using WDW Twilight I made "blue"birds. Then I added a little more blue in the top portion to tie the sampler together.
My wool applique classes have begun!

WIP-Wooden Spool Designs
Gingerbread & Gumdrops--kitted by my LQS
It is all cut out, placed and stapled on the block.  Yes, I said stapled. This is a technique my LQS uses and recommends. So I'll give it a try.  Only a small amount of blanket stitching is done. This will be finish-finished as a pillow.

A New Start-Wooden Spool Designs
A Wooly Good Year Quilt-January block
Now that I see a picture I can see the long arm needs to be on the other side :)
The pattern is below-

Coming Attractions-

Debbie Stiehler
American Patchwork
Stunning, huh?  (Borrowed the photo from Debbie's website) This is a fairly large shaker box-so it is a good sized project. It's been in my stash for a few years now and it was time to get going on it. The Spokane Needlework Guild is hosting Debbie and I am going to this class in June.
Have a great holiday weekend!

I love the Debbie Stiehler American Patchwork basket. I think your wool appliqué is coming along quite nicely as well. I've yet to try wool applique'. Your Stacy Nash and LHN pieces are beautiful. Look forward to seeing how you finish these. Amazed at how much you get done!

Since the Samsung Galaxy N7000's screen is large, it makes maneuvering from one application to another very easy and convenient. Who knows, maybe you can start a twelve string revival. there are types that are for a single phone or data card and there are types for multiple, simultaneous, phones and data cards.
