Sophia’s Sampler

I just finished this sampler.  I saw it done up many months ago and just knew I had to do it some day.  I had to special order it. Mine is done on 32 count fabric and the finished area is 6 1/2 inches by 7 inches. It was so much fun to stitch and I decided to do the sheep all in french knots.  I love how they look all wooly!

Here is a closer view of their wool.  Some people don’t like doing french knots but I don’t really mind. That’s a lot of french knots too!

Wooly sheep

Have a great week!

Easter Apron

I found this some time ago and thought how fun it would be to make an Easter Apron or towel with these adorable bunnies and eggs on it.

It comes from this Danish website called Hjemmet.  You can go here for the direct link to the article and just below the text you will see,”See the diagram on the apron here” that leads you to the PDF.

Have fun making something with this adorable bunny family.

Little Shamrock Cross Stitch

Update to Thursday’s post.  My sister made this little pattern up for a pin of her own.  Didn’t it turn out well!

Yesterfood offered this simple shamrock pattern for St. Patrick’s Day.  You can make it into a button, pin, or card and you can whip it up in a matter of minutes.

I know I’m a day early but this will give you time to make a button to wear tomorrow if you want.

Take care and have a good weekend.
