Weekly Update

My finish for the week is this piece by Kirsten Edwards, editor of The Gift of Stitching magazine.
Joy Assisi Ornament
Fabric: 14 ct. blue aida
Thread: Noel 4105 by WDW

I  added part 8 to the Spanish Sampler by Periphaeria Designs. Just two more parts and this piece will be done. It's going to make a great pillow, can't wait!
From the Fair & Square Exchange I got these wonderful squares from my partner, Jill F. Thanks so much, I just love them and can't wait to finish them into an ornament. The card was a lovely bonus and great touch. The design is Heart in Hand Independence Day Roundabout called Old Glory. Jill used Americana and Lancaster Red threads by WDW and coffee dyed the white DMC. Just awesome!
And last but not least I kitted another project to go in my "TO DO" bin. This design is by Little House Needleworks called Colonial Women. Will be another fantastic addition to my patriotic wall.
