Hello lovely friends! I am so thrilled and excited to share with you my first large finished & framed sampler - "Sojourner" by Theresa Baird. I finished stitching this last week. The next day I framed this myself. I had a frame that I had bought from a Thrift store a few years back thinking that I would use this for another project (Christmas Garden by Blackbird Designs) but that project hasn't begun yet! So just by chance the frame was a great fit for Sojourner. I cut a foam board that fit the frame, glued a thin batting to it, positioned my sampler, used lots tiny pins to secure it to the sides of the foam board while carefully stretching it & keeping it centered. I am really happy how it turned out. Started in June 2015 - Finished March 2016. I made my goal to have this sampler done by April 5th. ALL DONE!!!

Queen stitches for the strawberries. These were my very last stitches for the sampler.
Our weather here has been sun and rain. Planted lots of veggies and so far they are doing great. Fingers crossed we get to harvest them this year. I have been stitching a new project and hope to have it done before Easter. That's only 1 week away. Happy Spring everyone!!!
Thank you for your visit. With my love and appreciation - Annette

I need to have a go at framing some smaller pieces - have looked at some You Tube tutorials and think it is do-able.

So proud of your blog, I have been out of touch for a while with so much going on in my life and I was lost because of my illness but I'm stronger and I am here to tell you about a natural remedy that is guaranteed to make you wonder why your doctor didn't tell you about it. Then, on the other hand, it is pretty obvious why your doctor didn't, because that's not his job, is it? But, seriously, promise me you won't get too angry with your health practitioner, it's really not their fault. They can only practice what they're told to practice, right? When your health is at risk there's no time for Tom foolery, you've got to get down to the cause and nip it in the bud. So you've been suffering from painful gout attacks have you? Well, allow me to give you a new perspective on the solution to what plagues you I was once in your shoe until my college friend introduce me to Dr Itua herbal center which cure my hiv/herpes,Lymphedema, after drinking it for two weeks as instructed, Dr Itua is an africa herbal doctor who has natural power to cure all human illness diseases I believe Dr Itua so much because he help me cure my hiv/ herpes which has being my burden in life so I promised Dr Itua that I will testify about his work online after curing me and that is what I'm doing here so please if you are sick from those diseases do not hesitate to write Dr Itua Herbal Center On Email: email@example.com Or chat with him on his online store www.drituaherbalcenter.com
