Acorn Sampler is Finished

Well, here it is.... finally finished...

Acorn Sampler

Betsy Stinner - Earth Threads

28 ct Prairie Harvest Vintage Cashel Linen, NPI Silk

2008 Class Teaching Project, Celebration of Needlework, Nashua, New Hampshire, May 2008


Also, I heard from Sherry today that she has received my PIF gift for her (wow, I am actually finally down to just one more PIF to stitch and send!!) - you can tell what sad anniversary has been on my mind lately, but fortunately, Sherry says this was a good choice for her - I knew it, good country girl that she is ;-)
September 11 Floss Ring Tag

The Drawn Thread

Unknown R&R Reproductions 40 ct Linen, Weeks Dye Works and DMC Floss


So... now I realize I can start thinking about what new medium sized project I can start in place of Acorn Sampler - I guess I will start with looking at what is already kitted up :-)

Stitched on today: Finished MAW Exchange, and finished Acorn Sampler **Mailed out a new Crazy Exchange today

This acorn sampler is just beautiful. I had been hoping to make the needlework celebration this year but it didn't work out, maybe in 2009. I so want to make it back to NH soon. Congrats on your finish and Happy Stitching, CJ(ok;-)

Lovely job on Acorn Sampler and I love that floss tag!
Thanks for the tip on finding an issue of the magazine with Halloween Fairy.
BTW I tried to reach you by email but it keeps bouncing back as spam.
I accidentally posted the same piece twice on the Freebie Gallery on different dates. Did you want me to delete one? I don't want to screw up the count for the 1000th post.

Carol:
A very lovely finish to a lovely design. I'll have to keep my eye out for that particular design the next time I shop at Stitches 'n Things in Fenton, Mich. The store owner there is a great friend of Betsy's and offers many of her class projects throughout the year. Thank you for sharing your progress on this outstanding sampler. Maria S.
