I've had a chance to get some projects framed.  They've been hung too after a couple of weeks of hanging out in my sewing room.  First up is this Brenda Keyes piece that was a SAL with my EGA chapter.   You can find my details on this sampler HERE.  It's called Country House sampler and I fell I love with it when Tanya from The Scarlet House posted her version on FB.  It was in a grouping of sampler pics and she graciously gave me the information.  I personalized this one with my name which is why you see the black blob.
This one is A Pennsylvania Alphabet by the Goode Huswife.  This is not one that Anne has reprinted as yet and is rather hard to find.  Thanks to a generous friend who lent me her copy!  You can find my details on this project HERE.  I did change the thread colors.  This project is special in that it saved my sanity when my dad fell and had surgery/was in rehab.  Every stitch was stitched at his hospital bedside or with my mom who has dementia.  It was a long and stressful 2 months but I was blessed to spend time with them and help take care of them.  Do you have any projects that take you back to a specific time in your life or to a certain event?

The close ups of the frames indicate a good dusting is needed!  If I do that and retake the pictures, this blog post would never get made.  Ever feel that way yourself?

We had a great Thanksgiving and I hope you did too!  May all your stitches be happy ones!
