Long Dog Mystery Sampler

Finished and framed at last!  I started with two bands in 2007, two more bands in 2010, and the rest in 2013.  I didn't intend to drag it out like that, but don't most stitchers have some "long term" projects in their rotations?

Leo's Sampler Framed

I had Leo's Sampler framed at the Stitch Niche and they did a wonderful job, as always.  I love the frame!

Leo's Sampler is Finished!

I just finished Leo's sampler yesterday and will get it to the framer soon. I want to have it ready when we go visit at Thanksgiving.  Leo will be 18 months then.  The pattern is "Dawson's Sampler" from Cherished Stitches.

Leo's Quiet Book - Part III

Well, all the pages are completed for the quiet book.  Here are the ones I haven't posted yet:

Another counting page.
Camping - tent with zipper.
With a smiley face inside.
 And - - - the dreaded shoe page.

 For some reason I kept putting off the shoe page.  Finally this afternoon I just decided to just do it, instead of worrying about how it was going to come out.  I think it's okay for a handmade book.  Now all that's left is to put it all together!!
