I fell in love with this small Sampler because of the blue colors. I am very fond of blues; so I had to stitch it. It is from a older hardcover book called Exquisite Miniatures by Brenda Keyes. I found the book online and set to work on it. I had a mat cut, and bought a lovely frame, very similar to the finish in the book. I just love how it turned out. I have been trying to finish some WIP that I dug out of a drawer. I am afraid I have many many many of them. This is Just Nan's Needle Story just needing the beads and charms now and it can be framed. Here is another really really old WIP from a Stoney Creek magazine. I love the colors, as that is what is in my bedroom. Mostly just have the border to complete. Thank you for stopping by....have a great week. Nikki

It has really been too long since I last posted. Not even sure where to begin. I spent most of the cold Maine winter doing mostly crochet. Here are some of my finishes. These are a few Chemo Caps I crocheted for a local group. I might make some more this year.

For some reason I just have not felt like cross stitching lately. I put in a few stitches on my Moira Blackburn Three Things Sampler, but haven't picked up my Flower Power since my last picture update. I love it too. But I have been crocheting again; THAT I have felt like doing. I wish my X Stitching Mojo would come back soon. I made this over the Labor Day weekend. I have always wanted to make one. At one time I have a lot of those little 5 inch baby dolls, and had a pattern for something similar to this from Annie's Attic. I mean that was a LONG time ago. My grand daughter is 13 now, and I had these things when she was 2 or 3 years old.....but I never made one. Now I don't have a little girl in the family to give this to, but I do have a couple of co-workers with small grand daughters, so I will probably give it away to them. I need to make some clothes for the baby however, as she is naked right now!!! This purse
