Wednesday was stitch night, and as usual, our busy stitchers knocked our socks off with their projects. Here's Minnie's completed wedding sampler:
Love the beadwork!
Minnie also stitched this Halloween Brittercup design:

Here's a closeup of some batty scissors.

Several new and adorable designs have arrived from Plum Street Samplers.
Notforgotten Farm has some cute new projects, including this Adam & Eve motif Christmas pillow.
In the Christmas theme, we have this snowman by Turquoise Graphics and Designs:
An ornament, perfect for gift-giving, by Homespun Elegance.
And this small project by C Street Samplerworks. Perfect to finish as an ornament or as a small framed picture.
Thinking of knitting a gift for a wee one? This is Churchmouse Designs' "Stay-On Baby Booties." Moms will love these because they won't fall off and get lost. This pattern is wonderful; it's written for three gauges of yarn (fingering, DK weight and worsted), so you don't have to do all that math to convert the instructions. They don't don't fall off, but they knock our socks off!
