It’s finished! I finished it up last night, just in time to reach my goal to finish it by the end of the month. I love this sampler so much! It is just yummy. I wish I could get a more accurate photo of the colors, so that you can see how truly bright and beautiful it really is in person. Here’s a close-up of my favorite part.

I love the little star stitches above the meringue, I love the yellow cream beads too. Such a fun stitch. If you are wanting to stitch one of her samplers, definitely do it. It is so worth it. And she has a freebie on her website too, Chocolate Covered Cherries, just in time for Valentine’s Day!

I will be starting on the Barnabee’s Quest SAL tonight, and just finished ironing my fabric. Barnabee will be my Thursday piece in my rotation, and I am going to be starting Just Nan’s Baby Garden to replace Lemon Meringue. I’m stitching this one for my Goddaughter. So, with my SAL, my RR and Baby Garden, I may be overloading on Just Nan pieces. But, I think they will move quickly, if my RR is any indication. Speaking of my RR, I just received the next piece to stitch on, so I’ll have to take a look at that over the weekend and figure out a gameplan.

Well, I’m off to stitch. Can’t wait to see what my SAL mates get stitched on their pieces! We had snow today, so it’s a perfect night to sit inside and cozy up with a garden sampler.

Walk to Rivendell: Climb a steep slope. Pippin yawns “Nearly midnight”. Camp – In a firwood just over top of the hill. Sleep by a large tree. Fox sees them. Eat at campsite. Water from a stream at the foot of the hill. A little fall where the water fell a few feet over an outcrop of grey stone. After 10:00 a.m. when leave. (Total Miles Walked: 18.5)

I am grateful for being sore after yoga.

  1. Congratulations Michelle! It is adorable! Did you see it took exactly six months to stitch? It was easy for me to tell… you started on my birthday and ended on my “half birthday” – LOL!!!!!!!!!! Can’t wait to see your Barnabee update 🙂

  2. What a beautiful finish! It does look quite yummy.

    I’m thinking of doing Baby Garden as a birth sampler for myself. I posted pics of my progress on Barnabee from Wednesday night on my blog.

  3. Congratulations Michelle! it looks wonderful 🙂
    I started Lady Scarlet’s Journey and will be starting Barnabee’s Quest in a couple weeks 😉 looking forward to seeing yours.
