Saturday Stitching

Just a bit of stitching this week. 

I did finish Joshua's birth sampler.....pardon the creases and as it is linen it needs stretching but here it is hot off the q snaps.

I plan to take it to the framer tomorrow and fingers crossed it will be done by the 100 day celebration.

I also completed four Jolly July pieces.

All are stitched on coffee tea dyed  28 count even weave.  I am pulling out some Christmas fabrics and hoping I can start FFO ing these pieces next week.

I did see that Brenda Gervais of With Thy Needle and Thread has given us a peak at her latest designs.

I love this one...

And more Hoop La!!

We are off to Grimmwood for the weekend. I will be working on my Christmas stitching there as well as my name tag for the North Alabama Stitchers. I want to have my name tag done before the next meeting.

The birth sampler is beautiful, I love the colors and it's something that can always be displayed. Lovely stitching Arlene. I"m impressed you got so much done, 4 Christmas stitches!!! I love them all, especially the Season's greetings. Are they all for your tree?
I love everything Brenda designs, I'm definitely going to order the Hoopla one, love the witch flying on her broom....Have a lovely weekend at Grimmwood. Mary

You had a most productive stitching week, Arlene! Love the little ornament finishes and I can't wait to see how you finish them. The new Halloween Hoopla is darling--I haven't been stitching much Halloween since 2014 when my dad died on that day, but this one is so cute, I may just need to order it and try to stitch it :)
