  1. Hey Nicole! Heartstring Samplery has some wonderful charts...I stitched "Always in My Heart" last year, but have 5 more in my stash begging to be stitched. The designer sells the digital file for photo mug on Etsy, so that is as close as I can get to "His Eye Is on the Sparrow" until I finish a few WIPs...maybe next year(LOL). Anyway, I love your project choices; I must check out Dutch Beauty...had never seen that before. Have a great stitchy weekend.

    1. Thank you! I love Always in My Heart - I've had it in my stash for awhile now. It's so pretty.

  2. Hi Nicole, I enjoyed watching your video! I'm the same - I frame very few pieces of my stitching. If you came into my home, you probably wouldn't guess that I'm a stitcher. Unless it's Christmas - I have quite a few stitched ornaments on my tree! I do have framed pieces from the early 90s (OMG I'm sounding OLD!) but styles change and these would look out of place now. Perhaps I should get them re-framed?

  3. Cindy here. I rarely frame what I've stitched. My finished pile goes back almost 40 years. It's the cost of framing that stops me, but I do finish smalls, stand-ups, ornaments, etc. Have had Dutch Beauty in my charts stash for years! You go for it!

  6. American Sampler is at the top of my list right now. I keep having to stop myself from purchasing until I finish a WIP. Your February Word Play is so pretty, love the colors!
