A Finish

Winter Banner is finished - and it's still winter! These banners have been lots of fun to stitch and I'm so happy to now have one for each season.

Now I'm working on a little ornament by With My Needle, "Star of Wonder" from the 2002 JCS Christmas ornament issue, along with some stitchers at FGBB. I'll get back to the Shepherd's Bush project now that Connie has caught up to me! Good thing I checked her blog before I hit publish, lol!

Well, I spent a good portion of the weekend repacking the trunk show. It doesn't seem like such a big deal, but I was amazed at just how much time was consumed. Of course, I had to fill my eyes one more time with all that perfection! I'm so glad many of you have enjoyed looking at all the VS lovelies, and although the box has been shipped to its next show in Reno, I have more photos yet to be shared! Be seeing you tomorrow . . .

Hi Von, I had to smile about your phrase: the winter banner is finished and it's still winter....
But it's great! I'm very into seasonal things. I have just bought the seasons from Bent Creek and have planned to stitch it not as a row, but on top of each other, or each season on its own.

Is that blanket stitch around the edges? LOL! I still can't figure out why yours looks so neat and mine is just... wrong. Mine looks all crooked and just ugly.
Can you come on over and teach me how to do mine ;o) Oh wouldn't that be lovely!

Von,

I've been enjoying the photos you've shared with us by VS. I do have some of her charts but have not stitched any yet. Might just get round to doing one before the year ends. lol!

I like the banner you've done. Great work.

Hi Von: Lovely Winter banner! It is a wonderful finish. Congrats.

We were so spoiled in January. February came in quite chilly. Today (in Indiana) it is bright and sunny .... in the 20s with about an inch of snow.

Winter Banner is really nice, I have so enjoyed looking at all the VS photos and glad there are more to come.

Love your Banner. I adore series of anything. All you have to do to sell me on a design is tell me that there are three more to come.
Have also enjoyed the Victoria Sampler pix. What a great "job" to have ,checking and repacking a trunk show. If it ever comes to Europe, I am teh girl here to do a job like this.LOL Take care
