I got block #12 finished last night. I was going to personalize it (put my name instead of Mary Crow), but I liked the idea of it looking like an old fashioned sampler, so I left it.
40 ct. Vintage Examplar, NPI silks.
Here are the threads for block #11...
This block will take me much longer because it's solid stitching. It's one of my favorite blocks though - I love the ship.
Well, I also got a little bit more birthday stash yesterday (it's the never ending birthday - LOL). I couldn't resist getting a couple new Christmas things from Down Sunshine Lane, especially since Amy offers a birthday discount!
Little House Needleworks "Poinsettia House"
Shepherd's Bush "Holly and Ivy" kit
I'm not sure when I'll get to these, but I think they're so pretty. I love the colors in both designs. Thank you all for the birthday wishes. They meant so much to me!! Write soon! :)
