I'm Back And A Finish

I'm sorry I have been away for so long, but I have been having computer problems. We have 2 desk top computers and would you believe both of them had problems within a week of each other. Both had to be sent away to be repaired and they came back the same day. So I haven't been able to show you my progress on Grazing Sheep.

As you can see, she is now completely finished. She is a beautiful sampler and I loved working on her. In case you were wondering, all the sheep are filled with Bullion Stitch. I always like doing Bullion Stitch and French Knots so they aren't a problem for me. All I have to do now is get a frame for her and frame her.

This is my next piece. It is another Scarlet Letter sampler (I love Scarlet Letter samplers lol). This one is called Sophia's Sampler and it is really beautiful. Guess what it has down the bottom. Yes, more sheep. I told you I like samplers with sheep in them. I am collecting quite a few of them. If I had the space, I could start a sampler sheep wall.

This is my current progress on Sophia. I am currently working on the large vase of flowers that is in the middle of the top section. This sampler is in 3 sections. The top section is a bit flowery, with butterflies and trees etc. The middle section has the verse. It is a verse that I seem to be getting a few samplers with, - Jesus Permit they gracious name to stand etc. although this one has a slight twist to it, Sophia added her name into the second line. The bottom section has the sheep.

I also wanted to show you the beautiful pinkeep that Suzanne from Squazi and the Chickens sent me. Isn't it beautiful. It is something that I don't have and I have never made my self one as I seem to work on big samplers. It has pride of place in my work basket.
On the health front, I am going along fine and venturing further and further.
