Late ISHW Post

I did manage to get lots done on my ISHW week-end, minus Mass on saturday nite and dinner out.
I worked on a couple of things, one was the Three Pines Sampler from a Spring Retreat 2012 put on by Stitchville USA in Minnesota.
I have wanted to finish this lovely sampler for a long time it is  even included it in my Up for A Challenge 15,  now I can finally get it framed.
Sorry about the wrinkles I just wanted to get this posted.
This was a challenge for me in one way, I did a queen stitch that was shown on the pattern, it was a little different then the original way a queen stitch is done, so I gave up and stitched it the way I was used to. Jeannette came up with a different way to stitch the queen stitch.
I loved taking this class with Jeannette she is a hoot.

Next is the Hinzeit America, I also finished this on my IHSW week-end, I just need to dye the fabric and add the charms.

I manage to work on a Hunny Bunny by Just Nan, this so much sweeter in person, I was not sure how well it was going to turn out,  pictures sometimes donot show how lovely some patterns really are, I am excited about this little bunny, I am going to make a scissor fob instead of putting it ontop of a spool.

I also worked on a Prairie Schooler, Halloween stitch, Edgar over at Blacksheeps Bit Of the Web, inspired me to get going on my halloween stitching, this is a pattern from 2012 Whoo's There?, I love this piece I hope to have it finished this week-end.

Well that is all for now I need to get back to work the phone is ringing off the hook(what ever that means) lots of patients needing rides  this week.
Happy stitching
