Sharing more of my samplers.

I thought I would share some more of my finished samplers that
I have stitched through the years and are hanging on my family
room wall. I love to put some of my finished pieces on certain
areas around the house, especially where I can see them.

I starting stitching 28 years ago and fell in love with mainly samplers,
we were living in Tennessee and my children were small and going to
school, we lived in a small town and frankly there was not much to
do. One day we went to a Town in Alabama and there were a couple
of cross stitch shops, so I went in and the walls were full of cross
stitched pictures of everything you can inmagine, but my eyes were
drawn to samplers, and from there on I got hooked on samplers and
I still love stitching them. Below are some that I stitched years ago
and are from Sheepish designs.

Christmas is right around the corner, and I will be posting lots and
lots of pictures of family that I have not been able to post, since I have
been getting new designs ready for February 2010, two of them have
been stitched for some months. I have framed and photograph them and
will be sharing pictures of them later.

I always like to take the month of December off, since I love sharing
that time with family and friends. We have been so busy decorating
the front of the house and also inside. During this month we love to have
a special dinner every Friday and thank God for all the blessings he
gives us, especially health. We always say a special prayer for our
soldiers who are fighting. God bless them all and keep them safe and
bring them all home soon.

Well I finished all my Christmas shopping, all the gifts are pack and under
the tree, cards have been mailed, so maybe I can do a little stitching for
myself.
