Back to Stitching With You And Me

It feels so good to pick up my needle and thread again.  Nothing soothes my soul more than when I take up my linen and place some new stitches in my latest work in progress.  So it is, that Jenny Bean's Humble Servant Sampler is taking it's final steps toward being finished soon.  Here is my latest work on her.
                                 My Progress So Far & More To Come!

Isn't this just the cutest little cow?

Love this sweet flower!

Already I find my mind wandering, as I ponder which new design I will stitch next.  There are just so many in my stash calling out to me.  Here are some of them.
                                                   "Oh Christmas Day" 
                            by Janie Huble of Cat's Whisker's Designs
                                                (The Gift of Stitching)

                                                    Dinkey Dyes Silks
                                                  Mill Hill Seed Beads


                   "My Lovely Sewing Tools" Mystery Sampler

                                         Weeks Dye Works Threads
                                              (My choice of threads)


Hmmmm....What a decision.  We'll see what suits my stitching heart's mood when I finish stitching Jenny Bean.  


It is so nice to be able to be in touch with all of my dear stitchy bloggy friends again.  Meggie, (our spoiled toy poodle), says it's time to rest now.  
Thank to all of you, for your sweet comments.  They brighten every day!

  5. Jenny is looking great! My cow looks more purple than yours - different dye lot I guess.

  7. Your stitching is looking great. I do like the Janie Hubble design but I think you should start the Stitching Tools as it's on my list too. I'm new to GoS and love it.
