Wishful thinking

Lately it has been a lot more thinking and a lot less doing! Today it will be a lot more pictures and a lot less writing. Some of the items on my wish list: "Duck" by Marjolein Bastin, "Taste of the Mediterranean" by Susan Inget, "Coffee Sampler""Porch Cats" by Debbie Hron, "The Stitcher II" and "Patriotic Landscape" both by Sandra Sullivan. All these I found in the latest Keepsake Needlearts catalog .

The next group of photos is of my junior group yesterday. These 6 and 7 year olds really show great potential.

Finally, the Jerusalem Sampler and an ornament finish. Keeping with an inspiring resolution I read on another blog, I am going to try to finish one Christmas ornie per month. I'm not too sure I like this one. I have also attached a photo of the original here. Because of my incredible knack to screw things up on linen fabric, I made the outside border one set of blocks too small. So I had to delete a reindeer and "invent" my way through the rest of the design. Joe say he looks like Scooby-Doo with antlers and I tend to agree.


  1. If you stitched with your toes and didn't sleep ... ;)

  2. Love the Jerusalem sampler, and your great little reindeer. Aren't those little 6 yos darling!! Deb
