Theme-a-licious check in - Sampler September


I know I didn't manage to wrap up Airborne August, the end of the summer holidays got busy and I didn't manage to get round to it.  For Septembers theme I'm spoiled for choice as most of my wip's can be classed as samplers so I decided that I'm focusing on Juda Hale in Miniature by Eileen Bennett of The Sampler House.

I'm currently working on this section, I have another couple of rows to go on it.

The whole sampler so far.

I'm beginning to think that I might get this finished this year as I'm now past the three quarters mark on it.


I did manage to finish the stitching on 'Basket of Flowers' by Merry Cox last month, I'm hoping to get to the finishing very soon.

You;'ve had some great finishes while I was absent from blogland. Love the DT sunflower bell pull - it is a lovely finish. Juda Hayle is coming along beautifully - Loved the photos of the children and Rosie in her red jumper. Hope fall is coming around to call. Melody

'Judah Hale' is really beautiful, and love your sweet little miniature piece too. Can't wait to see your finishings of both of them.

Blessings!
