Stash...subtraction and addition

The Rebecca Winborne Sampler
by McIntosh Samplers


Mary Pets Sampler
by Queenstown Sampler Designs

First off, a huge thanks to those of you who emailed me and participated in my stash reduction sale. Everything is on it's way to you. It was a bit crazy trying to keep up with the emails, and first come~first served order, but overall a great success. I've been asked if I will be doing it again. I think so, but not right away. I was able to make some room for a couple new charts, another Rebecca and a Mary. I love them both, and they might have to go to the top of the list of upcoming projects. I also bought From Hollyhock Farms. I've never stitched a Stacy Nash design before, but I couldn't resist it. There are several wonderful primitive designs in the book. I hope to stitch them all.
Lastly, Rebecca Robinson is coming along. I took the picture under my Daylight this time. It shows the color of the linen much better than my previous photos. I figure that I'm half way done or a little more, and usually at this point, I'm so anxious to be done that I can hardly stand it. I'm not feeling that way yet, of course, I'm not to the boring border either. I still think it's going to be one of my all-time favorites.

Oh Rebecca is so lovely. I can see why you love working on her.

I thought that I was the only one who thought that borders were so boring lol. I usually do them in bits and drabs to break up the boredom. - Sandra.

I've never been much good at math, but stash subtraction and addition sounds like something I could handle. LOL! Love the newbies! Thanks for getting the subtraction packets out in the post so quickly - I'll give my mom the heads-up to watch out for mine. ;)

Rebecca is looking stunning!!! And oh my! I love the two new samplers you added to the stash!

Glenna said...

Great progress on Rebecca R. Yeah, the fly in the ointment is boring borders on a couple of mine... Love the McIntosh RW Sampler--I'll have to get it because it has BUNNIES. LOL--nutball here.

Alice said...

Super progress on Rebecca Tanya. That really is an awesome sampler. Love your new projects too. I know the feeling of wanting completion, like when you read a really good book and you want to know what happens at the end and you cannot get there fast enough and when you get there, you are almost sad its finished.
