A New Finish and Some Old

I just finished another hanging pinkeep, this time with a little penny rug to hold your pins and needles. As you know, I like to put my own spin on the pattern I choose, so this is my version of an alphabet by Brightneedle. The fabric I choose for this is a very soft, denim blue plaid, brushed homespun that's been antiqued a bit. I will be adding this to my Etsy shop if anyone is interested in it.


These are some of my favorite finishes that I have out for the holiday's and sometimes all year long. This one below is my take on the Settler's Sampler by Told in a Garden. I've used the amish couple and the wheat but added the quilt stars, moon and the word "Harvest" to make it more my own.


This is one of my absolute favorites that I stitched last year and I keep it out all year long. This design is part of a huge sampler by Birds of a Feather, called Happy Hearts. I stitched my husband's first initial and mine in the hearts to personalize it.

And last but never least is one of The Sampler Girl's patterns called Quaker Boo. I love this pattern and since my favorite holiday is Halloween, I just had to have one of these for the house. It's a bit hard to see because this was put under glass and I couldn't get a good shot without the reflection.

Well, I am busy stitching up some orders that have come in but I like add to my blog whenever possible. I have so much fun blogging and getting to know all the prim lovers out there. Have a wonderful day and Happy Stitching.

What wonderful finishes, Nan. I love how you used a part of the Happy Hearts sampler. I stitched that for my family and just love it and the motif you picked, is my favorite.
