A good start to Jenny Bean Christmas Sampler

Well, I started this one on January 25th and I am just about done. I have two holly leaves in the bottom border and then three more bands to do. The rest is pretty easy. The next band is a repeating diamond motif, the next band is the remainder of the alphabet, and the final band is the Jenny Bean "signature". I love the colors in this one and the holly leaves. I hope to be finished with this one by Friday.

In other stitching news, I stopped by Shakespeare's Peddler Saturday to pick up all of the threads I would need to finish lots of projects. I have a list of 17 projects that I really would like to finish this year. I have also pick out 3 or 4 more projects. So, Saturday morning I went through all of them and made a list of the needed threads. Believe it or not, I needed 28 different colors. I was able to get all but one. Theresa said she had just sold the last GAST Soot. No problem, it will be a while before I need that one anyway. This purchase was my birthday present from Hobbie and the boys. Aren't they sweet?

I am continuing to stitch on the Halloween Fairy. She is so pretty. I am sure I will finish her this month. My other projects include the Christmasland series by Raise the Roof and the Yule Gameboard. I will post progress pictures later in the week.

Have a great week!

It looks very nice. I've seen this stitched in person and it's really a great sampler!
