Thursday I worked on Dutch Sampler from Remember the Ladies by Kreinik designed by Thistle Threads. I picked this back up last Sunday and worked on it a bit all week. I hope to finish it next week.
Friday I was able to finish two small ornaments. The first one was a Victoria Sampler Beyond Cross Stitch kit that I started about 14 years ago.
The second one was a little Plum Pudding Needleart ornament from Holiday Samplings, I want to eventually stitch all four designs from this.
Friday we also worked on a group project. It's the Le Petit Chapeau Pincushion from the book Purely
Provence by Need'l Love. It was a bit of work, but I'm so glad we made these. I LOVE my hat! Thanks to Julie for the brown wool, to Teresa for the candlestick and Loraine for the lovely ribbon!

Here's a group pic of 5 of the hats that were finished. From left to right: mine, Loraine's, Dot's, Cindy's and Melanie's. Too cute!
Friday night and Saturday morning we made some embellished pins to put in our pincushions. Here's a closer look at mine (thanks Kathryn for making me the butterfly pin and for the cute kitty!
Saturday I finished another WIP that I just unearthed - Shepherd's Bush Warm Heart. I started this as soon as it was released, and again put it aside for some reason. Now I just need to put it in the cute little box. I have the Christmas one ready to finish as well.
The last thing I worked on was this Ohio Sampler Bookmark by Forget-Me-Nots in Stitches. I got this when I ordered the samplers book Ohio is My Dwelling Place. I worked on the queen stitches and over-one, and promptly remembered why I put it aside! LOL I really need to keep plugging away on this and get it finished.
I had such a fun weekend! I can't wait until we do it again!
