Ta Da! One More June Finish!

Here it is!  Needleworker's Sampler by Sue Hillis!  It took 48 hours to stitch (spread over 13 days) and it was fun!  I did make some changes, Sue charted it with Ecru Perle #8 for the border and 4 of the squares, but I used stranded Ecru DMC, 3 strands for the rice stitch, 2 strands for the sheath stitches and the border.  I used Perle #12 for the open eyelets and Perle #8 for pulled variation satin stitch. 

I am happy with it, and it will be going to the framer one day!

Part 6 Finished

I finished Part 6 of the Anniversary Band Sampler.  I did find out that I can't spell, and add that to not being able to count, I spent more time frogging than stitching....

Stitch of Month - June Finished

 I stitched up the June section of the Stitch of the Month today.  I went rather quickly, but it is all various sizes of the waffle stitch, and I just finished a border of 64 waffle stitches of the Spring Quilt Block a few days ago, so I am tired of doing waffle stitches. 
Here are all 6 sections completed so far!
