The only rule is to have fun, keep an eye for you threads and be always in stitches.
Pick 15 projects that are ALREADY STARTED and FINISH them.
ha, there you are, my challenge to you. Not new ones coz we all know there are far more than 15 to which we would like to start.

That's not all, but it's all I can post right now.  Maybe as I finishe these I'll post the rest.   Wish me luck, and thanks Jayne, for all your help.


  1. Good Luck Jayne! And I love the interlocking wheel. Very interesting!

  2. Quite an interesting array of projects.
    I can hardly wait to see more of your birth sampler. I think it's going to be beautiful.

    Years ago I stitched a Norman Rockwell for someone who has since passed. I don't know what happened to the piece.


  3. Audrey,

    You are moving right along with your pieces. I would love to have more information on the Roots & Wings pattern that you are stitching as a birth sampler. From what you pictured, it looks like it will be a beautiful piece.

  4. 'Roots and Wings' is by Thea Dueck for Victora Sampler. The name is Heirloom Birth Sampler. This leaflet also has a similar desigh called 'Bless this Child'. It's a great piece to work on with many different stitches. A website is indicated on the leaflet -
