Yesterday while out running errands with Heather, she asked if we could make a quick stop at Joann's because she needed a couple skeins of floss to finish up the cross stitch project she has been working on.
The neat thing about that was that she's almost finished with this sampler. I used to cross stitch a lot, and had started this project years ago. I had only gotten a little bit of the center of this project done, and then I got busy working in a quilt shop...
So along came my Heather to the rescue, who has a natural talent with needle arts. She had been doing punchneedle projects (including the punchneedle center for the sample of my Snowflake Punchneedle Pillow that's in the current issue of Create & Decorate Magazine), and she had made several previous cross stitch projects for gifts.
Heather took over my fledgling cross stitch UFO and is almost finished! I can't wait to see it all done. I love samplers, and the cool folk art whimsy of this pattern. Some time soon, I'll show it to you all finished and framed :) Thanks Heather!
