They're Finished!!!!

Hi Friends & Folk!!

Here is my finished
"Sledding in Connecticut" sampler...

I made it into a hanging pinkeep,
stuffed with sawdust and backed with repro civil war era quilting cotton fabric ~

it was stitched by Felicia onto 30ct "18th Century Blackbird" linen from R&R Reproductions...
one thread over two...using Gentle Art Sampler Threads
the finished size is approx. 5" x 10" and the stitch count is 150w x 75h.
pattern is now available for 10.00 + shipping
here is
"Christmas Adam & Christmas Eve"
also made into a sawdust filled hanging pinkeep ~ repro cotton fabric backing...

it too, was stitched by Felicia, onto 40ct "Lambswool" Linen from Wichelt
one thread over two...using Gentle Art Sampler Threads...

the finished size is approx. 5 1/5" x 10" and the stitch count is 120w x 198h
pattern now available for 10.00 + shipping.
(I happily combine shipping costs for you)

I LOVE how they turned out, and how I have them dsiplayed in these photos ~
very simply hung on a bare twig wreath with just a touch of fresh greens....

and I will email you back with your total...
these will also be available in my Etsy shop soon ~

My thanks to you all who have commented on these two designs,
and I hope they please you well!!!

Blessings from the Farm...

...The "Sledding in Connecticut" has my vote - beautiful! :o)

...I love your blog template! I loved the one earlier too but I didn't get to comment at that time. Too cute!

...I was thinking of you earlier as I was stitching wool applique and I was wondering how do you keep your embroidery threads separated and organized? I don't have a system and sometimes it all becomes a tangled mess. *sigh* Thank you.

...Blessings :o)
