Some finishes!

This is my first post from my new computer.  It's an Apple and we have a love/hate relationship.  It's taken me 15 minutes to figure out how to get pictures from my iPhone to the computer and surely when I try to load them on this blog I will have to hunt them down in the depths of this device.  Mystery sampler got framed!
I moved on to Eulalie Long by Plum Street Samplers.  This was a fun stitch and also my first PSS design even though I have loads of them in my stash.
And here she is framed.  I used a fillet as well to give the framer some more of my husband's hard earned money.
Next up is the beautiful and highly coveted Frances Eden.  This is what she will look like when I'm finished in 10 years.  Lol
And this is what I have done so far.  Well, actually I have started a bit on the cloud as well but you get the picture.  This is my first time stitching on 40 ct linen.  It's challenging but I love the color of the linen and will not start over.  I do have a concern that the verse at the bottom is done over one.  Either I will use a 1/2 cross stitch or purchase a finer silk. Oh ya, I'm stitching this in all over dyed silks chosen by Theresa from Shakespeare's Peddler.  Frances is going to be glorious!
One last thing. A friend of mine has an amazing job and gets to travel all over the world.  Last month she went to Turkey and I asked for a tablecloth.  Just a little something something for my house.  Hee hee.  This is what she brought back for me.  Thud!
Thank you for looking at my blog.  I do read each comment and appreciate your words.  Till next time, happy stitching and blogging, my friends.


  1. I love the frames that you picked for your 2 finishes. It looks like you are off to a great start on the new sampler.
    Lovely tablecloth!

  2. Hello

    I'm a new follower of your blog.

    Your stitching is beautiful.

    Your WIP is looking great, such lovely colours.

    Happy stitching!

  3. Your stitching is wonderful and the frames you picked are perfect for the piece. It's nice to see someone working on Frances Eden. I was working on it and put it down last year and I really should pick it back up again. Maybe yours will give me some inspiration. Although I tend to be a habitual stitcher!
