Saving the Best for Last

      It always surprises me how much time passes between my postings. My apologies to those who wish I would update more often. I guess I'd rather be stitching. I receive so much encouragement from my readers though and thought it was time to let you know how I'm progressing on Ann Hall and Elizabeth Sheffield.
      Ann is a relaxing stitch... not many thread changes and you can get a lot accomplished in a relatively short period of time. I decided to save Adam & Eve for last, hence the title of my post.

I love the 'big bird' Ann chose to include in her sampler.

      I finally completed the over one bird on Elizabeth Sheffield. It represents hours of stitching, but the look of the over one is well worth the effort.

2011 is becoming the Year of the Bird for me. It began with Ann Tarbox and continues with my current two samplers.
      I was thrilled to have won Carmen's, Cardan Antiques and Needlework, giveaway. A lovely painted pinwheel box, the CHS chart to stitch my own pinwheel, and the Middle Tennessee Samplers brochure. Thank you Carmen for such a generous giveaway.
I leave you today with a snap of the pups, sitting on the ottoman, watching the world go by. The ottoman is a perfect height for unobstructed views out of the front and side windows.
