Sampler September Wrap Up

I had every intention of posting every week for Sampler September.  That obviously did not happen!  I did end up rotating through all of the WIPs I intended to except for one and that one I'm going to destash.  Can't force love!  

I ended up having two finishes for the month.  The first one is the second in the series Springtime Pleasures by Barbara Jackson.  This little egg is TINY and is almost entirely specialty stitches.  The year is supposed to go down at the bottom but I wasn't feeling it so I may leave it blank if I don't figure out something later.  It was a fun stitch!

I also finished up Martha Pudsey by The Scarlett House last night.  Great way to end the month!  She was a fun stitch due to the funky colors and the border was loads of fun.  I've heard some people say the border reminds them of a string of Christmas lights.  Another fun stitch!

I'm not sure how it got to be October but we are enjoying a great fall day today in Florida.  The sun is shining and it's only supposed to be 82 today.  I'm truly enjoying it!

Until next time, I hope all your stitches are happy ones!

A beautifully stitched sampler! I love the funky colors. The border is awesome. So different from the norm. Loaded with great details. Enjoy your finishes!

Jackie: Martha is stunning, what a beauty.
I too sometimes leave off the date, I just cannot see doing one unless I really feel it is beneficial.
I hope you have a great weekend.

She's gorgeous.

Martha looks fabulous, Jackie! Your egg looks awesome. What about putting your initials in that space? Happy October and have a great weekend!

That little egg is sweet, Jackie! Martha Pudsey is such a beautiful sampler. And I can see the resemblance between the border and Christmas lights. Our days are in the 60s and low 70s and we have had nights in the 40s. Seems like the weather changed kind of drastically here and I'm not ready for it. Take care.
