On Friday I was thrilled to pick up Hannah Lancaster (Porcupine Collection) from my framer. It took longer than normal to get the frame because the molding was back ordered. It was certainly worth the wait. I love the results!
In fact, I am so "in love" with this sampler that I wanted to find a place for her in my family room. Adding a sampler in there is always a challenge since there are already 35 in the room (including Dutch Beauty). Well, I made room although it required rearranging two of my family room sampler walls, and moving one sampler from the family room to upstairs. (My walls are always changing.) Here are the results.
When I picked up Hannah from my framer, I also dropped off Rachel Hyde (Threads Through Time) to be framed. Although this sampler is a 2012 SAL for my sampler newsletter, I went ahead and completed it now. (I don't do well as a rotation stitcher. I've learned through time that if I put a piece aside before it is completed, I may never pick it up again. More about that problem at another time.)
Here are some photos of Rachel.
I'm now busily stitching on John Foster (Historic Stitches). My, how I love that sampler too! John was one of my newsletter SALs a few years ago, but I didn't get around to stitching it at the time. I'm so glad I rediscovered this fun sampler.
I had a fun time yesterday at my guild's day-long stitch along. I took a bunch of photos but will save those for another day.
I hope that everyone is having a great weekend. Our original Mother's Day plans had to be changed this morning, but I'm looking forward to having a belated celebration in a couple of weeks.
