Pat's Five WIPS

Here are Pat's five WIPs.  Besides being a wonderful stitcher, Pat makes beautiful quilts too!!!!  And she is a nurse!  I always wanted to be a nurse, so Pat is my hero.  

First up is Betsy by Sheepish Designs.  This design is just so amazingly cool and I love this project!!!!!!  

Did I mention the idea of an "on deck" bag????  That is the bag that I will put the kitted up projects that are to be chosen from after each one of the five are finished.  This project is definitely in my on deck bag!!!!!!!  LOVE IT!!!!!

 Here is Roses in July by Needlework Press.  This is a very sweet project.  I also have this one kitted up.  I remember when some of the others in our group finished this...they had it framed in a small wooden frame and it was a masterpiece.

 Speaking of masterpieces..................Christmas at Hawk Run Hollow by Carriage House Samplings is certainly a masterpiece.  Pat is doing hers with the called for DMC on 32 count and it is stunning

 Look at these close-ups!!!!!!  Be still my beating heart!

 And the beauty does not cease!  This is the Mary Peacock Sampler.  I have this started in my stash.  Why would I ever have put it down????  This is beyond amazing and Pat will definitely finish it this year.  What a happy dance that will be!!!!

Here is a beautiful reproduction sampler by Plum Street Samplers.  It is called Esther Sayer 1796. 
 The pinks in this chart are Pat's signature colors.  The fabric she chose is perfect for this project. 
Such wonderful picks by Pat!!!!  Don't you want to see what is in her on deck bag???????  Oh my goodness, I bet it is amazing.

Wow, another post of wonderful samplers. Love that you are sharing these. I need to pick a big one to start as a WIP.

Hi, Me again. This is bad. As I am scrolling through these posts, I think to myself "I want to stitch that one." Then I scroll to the next picture and think "I want to stitch that one too." So I scroll to the next one and think "ooo I ..." Well you see how this is going. I need some money.

OMG -- I tell you what, we need to come to some sort of agreement---- you either need to send me all your finished pieces, or you need to notify me immediately upon the purchasing of a new piece because it is obvious to me that you should be my personal stash shopper. I love absolutely everything you're doing!

Absolutely beautiful pieces! It's so much fun to see everything. The Ackworth sampler almost makes me want to stitch another Quaker. The colors!
