Chloe Lincoln reproduction sampler

I finished this sampler last week but didn't have time to post it until now. It is a reproduction of Chloe Lincoln from Hingham Massachusetts done by Sheeish Designs. This is an OOP chart but I was lucky enough to borrow the chart for the month it took me to stitch it. Thanks Michelle!!! I stitched mine on 30 ct natural linen using the DMC called for in the chart. I really loved the colors of the design when I saw it posted to someone's Blog and couldn't wait to stitch it.
In other news, Celebration of Needlework was a success and I am already looking forward to next year. I must get me act together and start designing the pieces I will offer in 2011.
I leave in 11 days for the Sue Hillis Memorial Day Get Together in Richmond VA. I have never been to Richmond and am really looking forward to it. I'm also looking forward to meeting Sue and a lot of the gals from the 123 Stitch message board. Should be a fun weekend.
I have two new designs coming out soon. One is Earth's Angels and it is a tribute to moms everywhere. The other is a retired class design called Christmas Trio and is three Christmas ornaments which can be stitched altogether in a row or as 3 individual ornaments. That one has some specialty stitches in it but they can be replaced with cross stitch if you want to do that instead.
It is a beautiful day in north central Massachusetts and I'm going out fro my daily walk now. I will update with photo's of the new ones later. Enjoy your day....Nancy
