What a Wonderful Life!


You can't hate having another birthday when something like this shows up in your mailbox! I am so blessed to have so many wonderful friends. My friend, Laura, stitched this glorious sampler by Darlene O'Steen (NeedlesPrayse) for my birthday.  It's "The Flower Sampler" done on 40 count linen. Click on it to get a closer look at the amazing stitching.



As you can see, I've been working on my Moroccan sampler. In fact, I haven't posted in over a week because I can't stop stitching long enough to take a picture! I just love watching this piece grow. I will confess to a little frogging, but not enough to make me crazy. So I can't tell you when I'll move on to something else.
