and a finish is insight!
You may remember the below photo from a posting from last fall.
I started this sampler last year
and I see a finish insight
Took me a year to finish,
not because of the size
sometimes life gets in the way and it got set aside.
It's just been waiting in the pocket of my stitching bag,
waiting it's turn...
I pulled it back out a week ago
and it is really turning into a beautiful Christmas sampler.
Maybe it is those pretty little snowflakes
on these hot hot summer days that I like stitching...
maybe it's those pretty flosses of shades of peppermint pinks, holly berry reds and pine greens
that sing to me...
Maybe it is the "mish-mash patchworky" border ...
Couldn't decide upon which border I liked best,
so I made the easy decision to use all three!
As Bob Ross would say,
the sampler has many "happy little trees"
or was it "pretty little trees"?
Trees carefully placed in a fashion that make bigger trees...
Do you see?
Fruit baskets filled with shiny red and golden delicious apples...
they are their best at holiday time!
Mmmm, can you smell them?
Shiny delicious apples and popcorn balls was the dessert
at Grammy and Grandpas house on Christmas Eve,
I was reminded of those family gatherings
as I stitched,
Its been a fun stitch,
I will be sad to stitch it's last stitch;
happy to have a finish!
Those are the best sort of finishes,
don't you agree?
