Two Prairie Schooler Seasons

First, let me say a big thank you to all of you for your wonderful comments on Sweet Valentine. I so appreciate your taking the time to let me know you stopped by. And I promise to show you my actual finishing of the pinkeep when I manage to get to it!

Last evening (in front of the Oscars) I put the final stitches into my modified Winter Wind, and a few days ago I finished up my long work in progress, Autumn Leaves, both from Prairie Schooler. I hope to finish both of these as flat folds, as they are seasonal and can be stored away easily when not in season. Of course now I must also stitch the new Spring and Summer samplers-- good thing I'm fond of both designs!

We had a snow storm last night, and everything was blanketed in beautiful white. Perfect weather for stitching on a winter sampler.

.
I made a little signature line with the sampler's alphabet stitching one over one and love the way it looks. Hope you are all having a great Monday!

Your PS finishes are lovely!

Don't you just love these PS samplers? I like the pumpkin in your Autumn sampler, and the signature line and the Winter Winds did turn out really well.

I'm going to do mine as a flat fold too - with a season on both sides. This way I just turn it around.

I'm new to Prairie Schooler charts. I just ordered several of them from the USA, and I wait till I have time to begin one. I wish you all the best.

I just love the Autumn Leaves, and put that on my list for things to do. The winter winds come out beautiful too.

Cathy said...

Both of these are lovely - I must say that I am rather fond of the two new Prairie Schooler releases too. A flat fold finish will be perfect!

Carol said...

Your finishes are GORGEOUS! Congratulations!

Oh wow, I'm so jealous, these are wonderful and ones that I want to do if only I had more time! Just bought the latest PS samplers too and love them all.

Sharon said...

Oh how lovely they both are. I love your signature also. I am working on Winter Wind and I think I will have to work on that Autumn one next. All your work is just so beautiful.
