I finished the Three Ships sampler from Shepherds Bush. I am thinking of sending this one off to Jill Rensel to frame as it needs the Rensel touch.
I also finished stitching the first piece from the Shepherds Bush Fold. I will post a photo of it mounted in the box as some as it is done.
I immediately started stitching the scissor fob for Part 2 of the Fold and am all done with the stitching part...now on to assembly. I will post photos of that when I show the assembled box.
I spent some time getting some finishing done as well. The first two are pin cushions from Shepherds Bush. I backed the one on the right with some pretty hand dyed purple wool that I had in my stash, then thought that the hand dyed chenille was the perfect touch.

Spools of My Thread from Notforgotten Farms:
The Original Sewing and Quilting Expo was held in Indianapolis last week. I attended only the shopping portion. Primitive Gatherings had a booth there which was my main reason for attending. There was a little pocket book damage, but I mainly concentrated on her wool pin cushion kits and half-yard fabric pre-cuts.
On Friday, I was able to attend a special opening party for Stacy Nash's new studio in Fortville, IN. She has done a tremendous job rehabbing the space and decorating it in only the way that Stacy can. I was able to get her new pattern, Miss Baxter's House from her new series. That will be the next project on my plate once I finish the Needleworker Sampler from With Thy Needle and Thread.
