Here are the two patterns I picked out from Tanya's drawing:
The Mrs. Lincoln Sampler &
Return to the Sea with Jane Austen
It was a hard choice. I had several patterns on my "wish list". I knew right off that I would choose the Mrs. Lincoln Sampler. After going to DC last year and touring Ford Theater and doing a Lincoln Assasination tour, plus visiting Lincoln's birthplace and boyhood home this summer, not to mention Mt. Rushmore, it was an easy choice. The second choice, however, was much harder. I finally narrowed it down to "Return to the Sea" and it's companion piece "At Home with Jane Austen". "At Home" has been on my list for ages, but I let my hubby make the final choice and he chose the sea one.
I think I have linen for the Mrs. Lincoln Sampler, but need to dig through my stash to find out for certain. There are several threads I need to get for it as well. So, it won't be started anytime soon. Maybe after the first of the year.
Thank you so very much, Tanya!
Here is a Halloween finish:
Design: Trick or Treat (book 112)
Designer: Cross-Eyed Cricket
- used glow in the dark blending filament for face of jack-o-lantern and on ghost
- added some beads for falling leaves
- used MH star charm haning from moon
- used MH ghost charm on haunted house
- used black MH bead for spider on broken window
- used small MH bat charm to hang from witch's hat
I have been working on this for about 3 or more years! It was so nice to finally finish it and be able to decorate with it this Halloween.
