Somes finishes

I finished Gobble by Plum Street Samplers a couple of days ago. It's on 32ct. ant. ivory using the suggested DMC floss. I think, that I will be making this into a pillow.
I picked up this Thanksgiving sampler by Blue Ribbon Designs today at the framer. I love this design. The colors are beautiful and I enjoyed every stitch. It's a large piece so I couldn't get close and have it all in the shot.

A close up of the middle.

A close up of the frame. I have used this frame before and I love it. The piece closest to the design is a bronze colored metal that really enhances the piece.

This is my current WIP. It's Hare's Christmas by Plum Street Sampler. I am doing it on 32ct navy bean fabric by Lakeside using the suggested GA fibers.

I want to thank everyone for the great comments on my last post. I really do appreciate them. I have had a really busy last 5 or 6 days and I haven't had time to post the recipe for the peach bread pudding but I will do it soon. It is worth the wait. Until next time Happy Stitching!
