I was so excited to pick up Rebeckah Roundey last week from Carol, my framer. I love the frame we chose!! I haven't yet decided where I'll hang her.
I've been devoting my stitching time to Frances Eden. Here's a photo I took about a week ago. I've made a fair amount of progress since then--mainly the motifs on either side of Adam and Eve. I'll most likely be able to finish her in early 2015.
Unfortunately, the charts for both Rebeckah Roundey and Frances Eden are out of print. They were charted by Mary Riggs (Handwork Samplers) who is now retired from designing.
I'm not sure if I ever showed you Mary's Sampler once it was framed. I stitched my version of this design by Paulette (Plum Street Samplers) last December but wasn't able to get it framed until January. This Christmas I have it on display on a brass easel.
Last night we had a special guest for the evening while his parents went to a Christmas party.
After dinner, we made reindeer cookies. Garrett, now 4 years old, really enjoyed it. He decorated eleven cookies--nine to take home and two for him to enjoy with his grandfather.
We're looking forward to an early family Christmas celebration this weekend. Perhaps we'll even make more reindeer cookies with our other grandson, Haiden.
