Christmas sampler finished...

No picture yet -- I need to take it to the shop Tuesday and stretch it. Then I can at least take a picture for those of you following my blog. But...Jenny Bean's Christmas Sampler is done. I finished it at a stitching/scrapbooking day yesterday with my friends here in H'burg. One of them said she likes it even better than the Halloween sampler, but everyone really loved the colors. Just as an FYI: it's stitched in the regular line of Sampler Threads (including some of their new colors) on Navy Bean 40 count Vintage linen by Lakeside Linens, but you can stitch it on whatever count you like. I used a few specialty stitches (a few eyelets for one of the letters, for example), but it can all be stitched in cross stitch. No backstitching, of course.

Just kicking around today and loving the fall temperatures here in Mississippi. I'm thinking I might pull out an ornament pattern and just stitch the rest of the day away on someone else's design.

Also, I am in the market for model stitchers for my reproductions...if you have experience and time, you can contact me through my e-mail: xspeddler@yahoo.com. You're going to need to be able to work on fine linen (40 count.) Have a great evening -- will post a pic soon...

Oh what a tease! I can't wait to see the Christmas sampler! I am working on the Halloween one and love it!
Hopefully I'll get to see a picture before I head out of town on Wednesday.

I'm with them, can't wait to see pictures!

So did all our enthusiasm encourage you to chart your A&E next?

Enjoy your week.

Yes, the next repro will be the Adam & Eve sampler. It'll be fun to chart/stitch. Hope y'all are getting some stitching done.
