A sampler for Sunday.....

and this one is a bit of a primitive.

I wish I remembered the name and the designer of this piece but I don't have a clue. I love the sentiment "Good things come to those that stitch". Who of us would argue with that? Whether it is cross stitch or embroidery or quilting I love all the crafty pursuits that employ a needle and thread or fiber. I stitched this on a lovely piece of pumpkiny linen. Such a great color. Here's close up of the house on this piece...

so it satisfied my self-imposed rule that the sampler had to have both an alphabet and a house. I'm glad I've gotten past that now since I have found several samplers lately that don't have both elements but they are so pretty and I can't wait to stitch them up.

I have been pretty productive this weekend and I've finished up a couple of projects. I will take some pictures tomorrow so I can show you the Crazy Mom QAL that I got all the borders on and I got my Shaelyn shawlette blocked and the ends woven in too. And I made some pretty thank you cards last week and now that they've arrived at their destinations I'll show you some pictures of those too. I haven't played with my stamping/card making toys for a while and I really enjoyed myself. Nowadays when I make cards they tend to use lots of different crafty techniques like stitching on the cards and buttons and felt and other goodies.

I have big plans for my upcoming week - lots of things I want to get accomplished around the house and of course several crafty things too. Hope your week is productive too -

Happy stitching-
carol fun


  1. Love your Sunday Sampler - the style looks vaguely familiar to me - but I cannot put a name to the designer.


Thanks for stopping by. I really enjoy reading your comments. They make my day!
