Happy Hearts on a Friday Night

I crashed the newly formed With Thy Needle Birds of a Feather Mystery Sampler stitch night at Inspired Needle. I say crashed because I am not stitching that project (although by the end I will be crying into my DMC because it is going to be gorgeous!) No pictures of the samplers; because everyone is still working on the border (part one). There were some beautiful finishes to be seen though.

Above is a very dear piece by Jardin Prive that Barb did. Below you can see how it will be finished as the top of a box. Please note her beautiful stitches. That is talent people!

Here is Linda's finished and framed Red, White and Bloom. Sigh. Perfection. It screams summer! It really is a happy piece.
Above is Barb's finished Forget Me Not sampler by Drawn Thread. Wow! Look at the roof. Amazing.
This little birdie is by Shakespeare's Peddler. It was stitched beautifully by Linda and Cathy (owner of Inspired Needle) framed it for her!!!! I covet this.
Above and below are two more finishes by Barb. Lovely Christmas sentiment and a beautiful Quaker sampler.

Here is an update on Linda's BBD Land of the Free. Stunning!!!! Those girls are always designing the coolest stuff!

Happy Weekend! I am currently stitching on my current obsession, Thirteen Colonies by Little House Needlework. Pictures soon.

Thanks so much for sharing all these pics. I love seeing what other people are stitching.
I'm not stitching the Mystery Sampler either... and I hope I don't regret that decision.

Thanks for sharing what everyone is working on. It makes me feel like I "crashed" your stitch group night! I bought Cross Stitch & Needlework magazine yesterday and can't wait to stitch BBD Land of the Free.

What a lovely collection of work. It's so hard to choose my favourite! I think I like the sampler stitched on the red fabric... or the first round finish... or the sweet little house with the satin stitch roof or.....

I missed that little round piece that Barb did:((( It is just beautiful.

Good to see you again and can't wait to see your progress on 13 colonies.

Have a good week
