Stitchin' the Week Away

Happy Friday All !
Yep, that's what this week was all about...
STITCHING.
That's a good kind of week :)
xx x xx x xx
I finished up the new sampler I was
working on and now all I need to do is 
pick out a complimentary frame, frame it, 
write up the instructions, take pics for the cover
and get them printed and off to the distributor.
Not always such and easy task, but as you
know, I love this job....pinch me :)
Here's a sneak peek....
This sampler has a story behind it, but I'll tell you
more about that later.
x x x
I've also finish up a WIP that I've been working on
since last year and my goal was to have it
done by Halloween.  CHECK :)
Kindred Spirits by The Primitive Needle.  Love this!
Looks like I'll be doing a lot of frame shopping.

AND....I'm doing a SAL hosted by Simone of
Soed Idee called B. Blok Mystery.

We're up to part 3 and today Simone
 should be posting part 4.
So, I'm all caught up and ready.....phew... for now :)
 I hate falling behind on things.  
As you can see, I've stained this linen before starting.
I'm using one of my friend Nancy's
(Victorian Motto Sampler) great reds.
She has the best variety of red floss out there.
  I think I own just about every one.

Just a reminder to all the Ladies Prim Society 
Members.  There are only a few days left to get
in on the giveaway over at Ann's blog.

Comment and become a follower of her blog
and she is going to stitch a personalized scissor fob 
for the winner, that will match the 
Victory Garden Pinkeep kit
that was just sent out to club memebers.
Wish I could enter....LOL
~xxxxx~

I'll be back soon.... I've taken some more
shots of the garden.  It's really coming along
and things have started to really fill in and out.
Have a great weekend my friends.
Smiles, ~Nan
