Welcome dear needlefolk friends!
Today was a super busy day,
finally back from my local print shop,
and now I can officially say my
new pattern is available...
Antique Reproduction Sampler
The model is stitched on
36ct. Lakeside Linen "Pecan Butter."
The chosen thread was DMC,
which had the best color matches to
the original 207 year old sampler!
If stitched on 36ct linen this sweet sampler
will fit an 8 by 10 frame.
I love the graceful winding border with
its lovely flowers and leaves!
And...the sweet little bird and black doggy!
After the sampler was stitched,
I antiqued it using walnut crystal stain,
giving it a nice soft look.
This pattern is now available in my Etsy Shoppe,

Sharing with you now are some country
scenes from the local roads I traveled this week...
Love visiting our sister state of Minnesota...lots
of lakes, birds, hills and valleys!
The mighty Mississippi's waters are no longer
frozen making it possible once again for
the big barges to pass through!
Love these red heads...I wonder if they are an
Patiently waiting for fresh green pastures!
This friendly gal was not at all
shy about posing!
Then she went on about her business!
Weekend Soul Food...
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths
of righteousness for his name's sake.
Where will YOUR path lead YOU
