My Weekend Stitching

I decided to start The Sampler Lady.  My wonderful friend Jan bought this chart for me, such a wonderful lady!  I started last night and I am pleased with my progress.

Today I plan to stitch for as long as possible (in other words - for as long as the kiddies let me) and make good head way into this design then later on or tomorrow maybe carry on with a WIP before they become a UFO!

My mum e-mailed me asking if I had any ideas for what I would like for my birthday (the big 4-0 in July!!).  I love gifts that I can keep, use over again or 'see forever'.  My brain is yelling "Stash stash stash" so I might do a lovely long wish list for Little House Needleworks and Country Cottage Needleworks charts and Crescent threads and let mum decide what she gets.  That way I still get a surprise too!

Well back to The Sampler Lady ...


  1. So you finally chose The Sampler Lady, good choice!

    The wihs list is a great idea :D

  2. Little House is also my favorite design. You have chosen well. Good job on He's a flake(one of my favorite ornmanents.

  3. The Sampler Lady is a lovely stitch - mine is nearly finished. I'm certain that you will enjoy it.
    Great idea for birthday stash.
