"Stitcher of the Month"

HI, again! I hope everyone has been enjoying the first few weeks of Autumn! Our temperatures have been dropping, and we'll have 50's and 60's next wk! Lows in 30's! Brrrrr! Not quite ready for that!
As promised, I took pictures of my stitcher of the month display at my LNS. However, I forgot my camera, I know, what a dummy, so I used my phone. The pictures aren't as good as with a camera. I have hopes of getting back into the shop before the month's end, and may be able to show the whole display.
Here's most of it. There are a couple on a shelf to the left that I couldn't get in the picture. As you can see, most of mine are Quakers. I love stitching them even tho one motif can take quite awhile. But what a feeling of accomplishment when one is completed!
On the top row is Blackbird's Quaker House, next is Rosewood Manor's Quakers and Quilts. As you can see, I chose to just stitch the Quakers! Next to it is La D Da's Quaker Alphabet, and I think the next one is by Carriage House. Last is Midnight Stitching's Quaker Row.
The bottom row, to the right of the sign, is Midnight Stitching's Quaker Floral, Knotted Tree's Fall Floral Sampler, a Blackbird Quaker from a retreat, and Samplers and Such's Quaker Friendship Sampler.

My mystery sampler is on display too! Isn't the green frame pretty? I was quite pleased with it. Now to find a place of honor for it here!

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Fall!

Hello, October!

Where did September go? Yes, I'm back after a busy month filled with weekend camping trips, a longer trip to Oklahoma, volleyball games and just general busyness!
I finished my mystery sampler and it is presently at the cross stitch shop on display with other finished pieces. I'm the stitcher of the month for October and can't wait to see how everything looks. I'll post a picture next wk after our stitch group meets there Tues.
However in the meantime, I have a few pictures of finishes to share, including one of the mystery sampler unframed.

This is a freebie that I made into a cube-it.

The next two are Primitive Betty freebies.

Anyone know the designer of this cutie?

I do know the designer of this adorable friend Marianne of Midnight Stitching!

Another fall freebie that was asking to be made into a cube-it!

And last, but not least, my mystery sampler! I'm very proud of it and it looks stunning in the frame!
Can't wait to show you!
