I Promised to Share

It's not like I haven't been stitching.  I just couldn't share some of it with you because they were gifts. Hopefully, I'll get my organized life back soon and have more stitching time. 

My beautiful great-niece, Miri, was born in September.  So my sister-in-law stitched a lovely needlepoint piece for her and I framed it. The white washed vintage style frame really fit the style of the piece, I think.

Then I decided I needed to stitch a birth sampler for her, so I used one of my favorite ones with a few minor color adjustments. "Heirloom Baby Sampler" by Heart in Hand from 1995. And yes, it is still available. Just as your local needlework shop to order it from Hoffman. The verse is especially sweet. "It is not a slight thing when they, who are so fresh from God, love us."

And, of course, you've seen Shores of Hawk Run Hollow unframed. Well, I did manage to get it framed in time to give it to my husband for Christmas. It's pretty nice, if I do say so myself.
