{ progress }

I've been working on this Quaker sampler for a week now...
& as you can see my progress is slow-going.

I work on this between orders, house cleaning, farm chores & such~
so much to little time!
But, this will be finished today, and will be available at the Winter in the Valley show.
don't know if i'll frame it or what...
we'll see!
Cold & Rain-y today.
woodstoves are piping hot.
Corned Beef & Cabbage in the pot.

Stay Warm, keep stitching~
Plenty & Grace,


  1. Very very nice work Lori! I love anything with the alphabet and collect antique samplers! You have me thinking of taking up stitching again. Most of my creative time is spent rug hooking now though. As you say.......never enough time! Love your blog! Cathy G

  2. i'm loving it~can't wait to see it finished~rainy here too and chilly!
    corned beef & cabbage sounds yummy~have a great weekend!

  3. Can't wait to see it finished! I love alphabetical picture/stitching.


  4. I think I might have that pattern! I love the colors and can't wait to see how you decide to finish it!

  5. Your stitching is looking lovely. I just now found you blog and so love reading! What a lovely blog you have. Blessings,Kathleen

  6. I like the threads on the sampler! Looks like a grey to rust? That corned beef & cabbage sounds yummy! I've got stuffed cabbage simmering on my stove... is it cabbage season? LOL! ;-)

  7. Lookin' forward to seeing the sampler complete...I know it will be awesome!!
    Mmm...the corned beef and cabbage sounds so good! We had salad, steak & twice baked potatoes last night with lots of leftovers, so no cooking for me today! And did I mention apple pie and peach crisp?!!
    Have a GREAT day!

  8. :) I've got a similar sampler at about the same stage. Flippin' from project to project to duty to errand sure makes things go slow sometimes huh? :)
