Sam Sarah's "Love Summer"...

"Love Summer"

This is from the "Merry Little Summer" chart-pack.  Love Summer is stitched on blue evenweave fabric with hand-dyed cotton threads: Gentle Art Sampler Simply Shaker Threads in Green Apple, Brethren Blue, and Pomengranate, The Dye is Cast in Calendula, and Weeks Dye Works in Cypress.  The hand-made buttons are from Just Another Button Company.  It is hard to tell but the frame is a light pink that looks beautiful with the buttons and pink threads.

Stitched in May 2010.

Shepherd's Bush "Be True"...

"Be True"

This little kit from Shepherd's Bush is stitched on hand-dyed linen from Lakeside Linens using silk floss.  The rose button is hand made by Just Another Button Company and the mat is hand painted by Jill Rensel.

I stitched this in May 2010.

Spring Basket Quilt...

I made this double-sided quilt for my Grandmother to cheer her up.  She recently broke her hip and is still in nursing care at a facility.  

Bad, bad pictures, I know, but I wanted to get it in the mail to her and it was raining so I couldn't take it outside.

Sheepish Design's "Frolicking Flowers"...

Stitched on 28-count linen from Zweigart over one linen thread.  Stitched using hand-dyed cotton floss in the following colors: Weeks Dye Works in Navy, Ivy, Sweetheart Rose, Squash, Angel Hair, Iris, and Americana.
Stitched in April - May 2010.  It took me about five days to stitch.  I would estimate 12 hours?  The design, when stitched over one, measures about 3.25" square.
