primitive pattern turned sampler

i really like the stacy nash patterns
this one was titled play in the dirt
i added alphabet
and a pot of flowers instead of a shrub
and it became a garden sampler
completed it last autumn
but have not framed or finished it yet

i am working on shepherds bush glad tidings at present  but i messed up and tried to do it over one
not good for the eyes
and when i got to the white thread....oh my....i gave up
and am fashioning it into a small sampler
pics later

these are the round 15 fair and square stitchings i made for carolyn
fair and square is a fun site
to get my stitching mojo conjured up
all the folks i have met thru exchanges have been positive

here goes

just joining
the fun of all the stitching and handcraft blogs that i delight in
my thanks to all of you who motivate and inspire

i am none too techno savvy

here goes:
a christmas cup towel  *ho *ho *ho

a liitle birthday candle mat from "bareroots" littles
