Been stitchin'!

Dropping in to say hello and see what everyone is up to!  It's a dreary, snowy Sunday here in SE Michigan. The perfect kind of day to stitch.  Or watch the Superbowl, if that's your thing.  49ers!

So far today, I've done all the laundry that's been piling up, made a pot roast with biscuits from scratch,  finished a little bitty sampler, went to the gym(to work off aforementioned biscuits), and framed a finish that's been waiting since August.  Now I will do nothing but sit for the rest of the night!  I'm sure to lose an hour or two to Pinterest.  Now for some pictures...

The finished finish:
 Magic Garden from Shakespeare's Peddler using suggested threads on 40 ct linen.  I'm still working on my mounting and framing techniques.  The frame was a clearance item from Michaels.  I think it may be a bit too small.

The little sampler and another I added a few trinkets to:
Heart In Hand's Sunflower Sampler.  So cute!!  And for St. Patrick's Day, it's R&R Reproductions  Scattering of Shamrocks.  I picked up some shamrock charms to add to it. Now they  just need a good pressing and frames.  I'm getting a bit addicted to R&R's Crown and Thistle charts.  In the past week I've picked up a couple and have a handful on my want list.

My next big thing is going to be this:
Blue Ribbon Designs Mystery Sampler, Blue Jeans & Daisies!  I impatiently waited all week for the mailman and now it's here.  I plan to start this week.  Love that gorgeous blue fabric!

Well, that's all for now.  I'll be back soon to show some progress on other stuff. Have a good week!

EDITED TO ADD: I just realized I need to change my wallpaper.  Belated Merry Xmas!
