More of An Emblem of Love

Here is a bit more again of An Emblem of Love, the Monday night SAL with Karen - (have you seen her stunning Shepherd's Bush floral band sampler yet? If not, go look - it is not to be missed!!). Anyhow, on EoL tonight I was able to get the floral motif above "An Emblem of Love" all stitched up. This is such a petite and sweet sampler.

I was RAK'd today! I am so used to being the RAKer, that it felt a little strange to be the RAKee! Julie, a regular reader of my blog but who is not a blogger herself, bought one of the fabrics I listed for sale last week. Along with her check she sent me Flutterbys, an adorable chart that I have had on my Wish List forever! I am so excited! I just love this little sampler (and pretty much anything else by The Workbasket!). Thank you so much Julie!! So sweet of you!!

Stitched on today: An Emblem of Love

***Oh my goodness, CATS in Hershey, Pennsylvania is next week already!!! I think even Mike is looking forward to our trip!

I love your WIPs. Especially the samplers. I love to cross stitch myself and favor country scenes. I prefer the patterns from Cross Country Stitching (http://www.crosscountrystitching.com/) personally. They soothe my soul.

Emblem of Love is awesome -- lovely colors. Karen's looks good, too.

Enjoy Flutterbys -- you probably have all the silks already :D

Great progress Carol! I love stitching those motifs, they're really easy to do.

Due to having reduced stitching time in the day now and being really tired last night, I got half a medallion done yesterday whereas I was hoping to finish the bottom corner, so I might wait until next week to share a pic.

P.S. Maybe I will see you in Hershey!
