Stitching and Stash Diving

Good Morning. It was a fairly productive weekend. I finished an ornament for an exchange, working on Vicki's birthday present and found a fun project that had been lost away. I also working on my ABC Lizzie Kate piece.

The down side: I figured out that I was using too small a piece of fabric for Vicki's present now have to start all over again (Ugh)..

This is the little more I added to the Lizzie Kate ABC Lessons
This is a sampler I did in 1988. It was when DMC was pushing their new variegated fibers. I don't even remember where the design came from, I wasn't keeping track. I do know it was kind of a pain to stitch because you had to separate the floss from light to medium and then medium to dark to get the effect needed for the design :).. Now I need to reframe it.
And finally here is the ornament I made this weekend. It is from Milady's Needle Quaker Christmas smalls. I put the name of the recipient on the back.. Wish I took better photos. Well that is all for today. Have a great week everyone!

Great finishes. I love the Quaker ornament very much. And what an amazing piece from 1988. Back then I didn't even stitch ...
