Lynn D.'s And They Sinned

Lynn was kind enough to send me a photo of her And They Sinned and it is gorgeous. She stitched this on Pearl Barley linen using the Gentle Arts Sampler Threads. For the most part stitched as designed but she did omit the grass at the bottom. Thank you Lynn for sharing with us. You did a wonderful job.

Deborah stitched my complementary design on 40 ct Linen using  silks. Thanks Deborah for sharing this with us. You did a great job and it looks beautiful.

This freebie is available on the blog, if you would like to
download it, go back some pages.


These are some pictures that were taken during the trip
my daughter took with her family to Washington DC.

Some were taken in the Smithsonian Museum, others in
front of the White House and the others in frot of the
Washington Manument.

Alex really enjoyed this trip to Washington since
he is of an age to learn and apreciate things better, he
really loved everything he saw in the Smithsonian Museum
and loved taking a picture in front of the white house (well
at least that you can see the white house in the background)
he was so impressed by this trip.

Kathy's BLACK DAHLIA wip

Kathy aka The Mad Stitcher finally sent me a photo of her Black Dahlia WIP. She is using silks on 32 ct white Belfast linen. She is working on this between all her model stitching and I appreciate her sending me the update. Thank you my dear kind wonderful friend (Kathy is very busy doing some more model stitching for me, but she likes to take a little break with her group of stitching friends and do some stitching for her)

Kiki's TRINITY sampler

Kiki has sent me an update on her Trinity Sampler. She is making great progress and it is so much fun watching it progress week by week. Thank you, Kiki, for sharing these updates with us each week. I really love getting them. She is using silks on undyed unevenweave linen. She says she made one small color change to the corner motifs. Kiki would really like some company stitching this design. If you want to join her SAL just let me know and I will get you together. Kiki you are really making that needle smoke, I cannot believe how much
you have stitched and I want you to know how much I appreciate your progress pictures, they
mean alot to me, hugs your way Kiki.


Jeni was kind enough to send me photos to share with you of her Northern Lights Sampler. She is stitching it on a 32 ct linen "mystery color" using the called for threads--although she did change BeWitched to Witches Brew. Great work, Jeni. Thanks so much for sharing this with me and allowing me to share with others.
