IHSW Photo Post - Part 2

Hi, Again -

Be sure to look at the post below this one, too.  Once again I could not get all the photos to be where I wanted them, so I broke it into two posts.

This post will be devoted to four of Rose's finishes.  She puts most of us to shame.  Without further ado, here are four photos of work from Rose, who we affectionately refer to as our OA (Over Achiever).

Here is Rose's version of the mystery sampler
from With thy Needle and Thread.
As you can see, she changed the birds to cardinals
partly because that is our State bird.
Nice going.

An older finish from Rose awaiting framing.
If anyone knows the name and designer,
please let us know.

Really cute finish of
Eileen Bennett's
Little Green Acorns Band Sampler.
This was a class last year
at WRSG.
You have to see this one in person to really
see how cute it came out.

Rose's annual Valentine for her hubby
awaiting framing.
This is from Drawn Thread.
Rose says it was a lot of fun to stitch.
Has all those different stitches in it
that DT is famous for.

Well, that's it for today.  On to the things that must get done like things for work, getting tax info organized, tidy up the place, etc.  Hoping to make some time for my own stitching later today...haven't had the chance to do any since last Sunday!

Have a wonderful stitching weekend everyone...still definitely stitching weather here in Ohio.  At least we don't have to feel guilty for not working in the yard!



  1. Wow such sweet projects and very sweet stitching..
    Have a lovely weekend x

  2. I always forget how pretty the Mystery Sampler is. And, I love Roses's version. I'm anxious to see who the designer of the Patriotic piece is. It's so beautiful.I hope you do manage to get some stitching in. It sounds like a busy weekend!!!

  3. Great stitching by your friends - congrats to them, and thanks to you for sharing the pics. Have a nice weekend.

  4. Such gorgeous pieces by Rose--love her cardinal version so much! I didn't realize that was Ohio's state bird--learn something new every day :)

    Enjoy the weekend--stay warm!

  5. What beautiful finishes. Love the cardinals on the Mystery Sampler. Sounds like a good time with lots to show and share!

  6. The patriotic piece is called 'Liberty Sampler' by The City Stitcher. These tend to not be found in shops now but can be ordered directly from the designer, just Google 'The City Stitcher'. This is such a fabulous piece and seeing it here makes me want to pull it from my stash and stitch it!!! Hope you found this helpful, Laura

  7. She is an OA! Love her finishes!!
