Miss Baxter's House from Stacy Nash caught my eye as soon as she released it. It was a must have and immediately went to the top of the stitching rotation. I have used this frame set before for my Blackbird Design pieces as it works so well with primitive samplers.
I love the chickens, rooster and the bee skip on this sampler.
The next sampler was a Mystery Sampler from Norden Crafts from a few years ago. They typically release their mystery samplers in three parts over a period of time. I will admit that I did not fall in love with this when it first came out. The main reason was that the picture on the front of the chart was a section of the original sampler that did not lend itself well to being photographed. Then I saw someone's sampler in progress and I had to have it. This has been in the drawer for a couple of years..."Margaret Cottam" from La-D-Da.
I used the same outer frame, but added a different fillet.
My next round of framing will be heading out to Utah in a few weeks with my BFF Janie to go to see what Jill Rensel can do with them. I may take a few over to Hobby Lobby while I wait for their return as Jill's turn-around-time will likely be a few months. That will be my early Christmas present to myself.
