Love, Hope & Charity

Hi all

It’s been a while since I did some serious stitching and I thought I’d share with you a few small  pieces I’ve finished recently  and my completed Carriage House Sampling’s Virtue Series.

CHS Love, Faith, Hope & Charity 
– I’ve stitched these 4 patterns on the one fabric so I can frame them together. Used the DMC threads and really love the combination of colours and how they’ve turned out.


Here are some closeups



Drawn Thread -Love
– this beautiful freebie  which I’ve seen completed on some of your blogs. Stitched with DMC threads.


Elizabeth Designs – Peace
– another cute freebie, stitched on 32 count lugana which I tea-dyed. Absolutely adorable sheep!


 AMAP Quaker a 6 Mains
– a small motif from that lovely sampler so generously shared by AMAP, stitched with DMC 4030 variegated thread


That’s all for now – I’m off to finish the smalls into ornaments which will be given away as gifts. Shhhh… this is going to be a surprise so I’m not giving away any more information!

My stitching is going so slowly and I have so many patterns to stitch. If any of you know where I can lay my hands on some turbo needles, please give me a hoy!

Happy stitching 🙂

    Hi, Barb. It may be a long wait. I started with a Google Search (my very first stop for anything I’m looking for)and my beef is: How come knitters get to have them, and we don’t? 😉

    Merry Christmas!
