1837 Crown Sampler by Plum Street Designs


A wonderful sampler by Paulette Stewart.

Stitched on 32 ct Vintage Examplar. I used the Weeks threads called for. The original had alot of errors and Paulette left them in the design. I left some, some my OCD kicked in.

Summit Stone by DSD


While hiking in Jasper Alberta, July 2007, I found this lovely piece of art. Being a craft person and art lover I felt sad for the one that lost it and always just adored it for the intricate painting. I recently came upon this sight Summit Stones & Adventure Musings... By DSD and was thrilled to find out I was meant to find it.

Primitive Hare freebie. Sister Stitcher

Stitched this for our annual Sampler Guild ornament exchange.  I always adored this cute design and thought this was the perfect occasion since I feel the  women in our Guild are Sister Stitchers

Primitive Hare contest finish

For those stitching the Primitive Hare contest here's my little pincushion. I stitched it over one on Salem linen using some Weeks thread I picked out. I just think it's adorable.

After living in a high rise so long it's wonderful owning a house and having a garden.
