More Stitching!

I finished Small Rustic Composition yesterday.  It was a kit from DMC and a gift.  The kit came with lovely minty green aida but there was a permanent crease in the middle of it so I switched to something I had in my stash.

I also finished a few more squares for the Sampler Life SAL. 

And then when I dug out my iron to press the Small Rustic Composition, I came across 3 other smalls that I finished earlier this year but totally forgot ... duh.

I can't find the pattern for this one, so cannot remember the
designer,  but I think it's from one of the JCS Christmas
magazines.  Sorry ... I'm too lazy to go look it up right now.

I love this little guy.  I stitched him for an exhange a
few years ago and always wanted one for me.

It's been awhile ....

Well, it's been over a year since I've been here.  I've been in a major stitching slump and am trying to get out of it.  Here's what I've stitched over the last year.  It's not much but I hope there will be more to come.

The above sampler is based on one from DMC that uses all their new floss colors.  I don't really like their color combination so I changed it and am using different types of threads besides floss.  I also changed the stitches in the four corner blocks.

This is a SAL from The Sampler Life Facebook page.  Each square is a different designer and is released monthly.  It's still going on if anyone is interested in joining in.

And this is from Plum Street Samplers and is actually finished!  I added the top and bottom borders just for fun.  I love this quote by George Washington:

True friendship is a plant of slow growth, and must undergo and withstand the shocks of adversity, before it is entitled to the appellation. 

Take care everyone!
