You Just Can't Beat It! Stitching with Friends

Hear are some sights I have been lucky enough to see this weekend. Above is the finished and framed Frances F. (thanks PJ!!) by Sheepish Designs as stitched by Pat. Isn't it just gorgeous???
And speaking of Gorgeous??? Pat finished this BBD Loose Feathers design last night. She stitched on pear linen with the called for silks. It is really just amazing! It is on my must do list!
Linda finished and framed this great design by Stacy Nash. This was our summer group stitch along project. Linda and Karin (see below) picked some unorthodox colors to stitch with and it really paid off!!!!
Here is Linda's current project. Part one of the BBD Loose Feathers design. I need to get on this bandwagon stat!!!!! So lovely!
My friend Teresa really had a whirlwind day. She flew home from her California vacation in the morning and was stitching with us in the evening! Now that is dedication. She was nice enough to bring by her newly framed Button Button by CCN. I LOVE that yellow frame! I want to buy it and then figure out what to stitch in it!!!!
Linda M. brought some finishes for us to see. This is a project that she finished some years ago. She did not remember the designer. Karin thought it was a British designer. It is really so lovely.
Here is Karin's rendition of the Stacy Nash project. She was trying out different frames. Love her colors.
My friend Jayne was showing us this framed piece she did a long time ago. Darling Lizzie Kate design!!
Linda M. brought this beautiful counted thread piece for us to see! Wow!
Oh that Barb! She stitched this entire stocking within one week! It is on 40 count linen. The design is by With Thy Needle and Thread. It is just so so darling.
I had to show you a close-up of the bottom of the stocking. Can't wait to stitch this myself!
I bought these scissors last week. I love them! So much fun to snip, snip, snip threads now.
Jayne showed us this piece that she framed herself. Love it!!! Also, this design by LHN is a total classic!!! I stitched it too and it was so much fun!

Wishing everyone a good week!

Hi Laura, just another FYI, I think that first sampler you posted is actually called France F. sampler by Sheepish. Sarah Spur is another cute one but it is by Carriage House Samplings. Just thought I would drop you a note in case others are asking or trying to find this gem! It is another oldie but goodie! pj
