Back From the framers...

Here is Isabella Johnstone. I love that cow!!! I really enjoyed stitching this one. I loved the greens and the red in this sampler.
She is hanging with Sarah Boone and Susan Jackson over the bed in my guest bedroom.

Now I just need to get the bedroom organized, all the xmas presents are on the bed along with gift wrap!!
This is Better Late Than Never from Eileen Bennet. It was a kit that I received in the Round Robin one year at Sampler Gathering. She gave you a piece of fabric to stitch it over 1 or 2. I chose over 1 and let me tell you it took so long for me to sit down and finish it because the rows of eyelets were evil over 1 on this fabric! I had to wrap them twice to get them to open up.

And then here is Jenny Bean. I think she is pretty fabulous and I love the frame.
Now seeing all of these framed and hung up has made me say whoa! I need to be stitching some more samplers so I have something to show for next year. I love the ornies but I do love the girls too. So in the next few days hopefully I will be updating you on my sampler stitching.

I hope that everyone has a good week. I hope to be getting a giveaway together soon. I need to get the xmas cards done and also some gifts packed up.

Talk to you soon.

Chris, these are beautiful! Of course I am partial to Isabella! I took her to the framer's yesterday and hope she will back soon too.

Your framed pieces look wonderful! Isn't it great when you see that finale to all your hard work? ;-)

Oh, Chris--these are all wonderful. I especially love the Jenny Bean and its beautiful frame--just perfect!

Good luck with those Christmas cards. I've bought mine, but done nothing about getting them written and in the mail. I just keep procrastinating!
