Finished for Friday: Easter Sampler

This is a little stitchery sampler I worked on while I was stuck in my hip-torture machine for a few weeks. It's about 14" by 17" and you can get the pattern or kit here.

I also read a few books, including The Lord of the Rings. I read the whole thing every few years. Now I'm reading a book on parenting teens. Scary stuff. I miss those preschool years!

Lit and Laundry

Finish anything up this week? Add your link to the Mr. Linky below, and feel free to grab my button from my sidebar. Any type of finish "counts." Thanks for joining in!

Why did you mention laundry? I've been trying to avoid it. I love your embroidery. My sister would love your embroidery. I'll send her over here to check it out. I think she might like to make it. I don't like embroidery. It's too slow and my stitches are crappy.
Take care, it was fun visiting. Now I know how to short-sheet a bed. :)

Oops, I meant to say "I wish" I were craftier. I also wish I could speak English correctly ;)

I have decided I am taking sewing lessons for you. Oh... to be able to make something that beautiful!

Happy Easter!

Hope you are also gaining more mobility after surgery and having to do leg torture less frequently.

I love that sampler! Too cute!

I promise I'm not trying to skip out on Fridays when I swore I would try to participate every week, but I broke my foot last weekend! I can't get to the computer room to post on my blog without help because of its strange location in the house. So I can only comment on others' blogs from my cell. :(

Last Friday I even finished decorating Dude's room (before breaking my foot) and for this Friday I finished the entire Twilight saga, and also learned how to drive with a walking cast on!

I aspire to do Finished for Fridays but that would require that I actually finish something, anything!!

Love you stitchery.

Have A Fabulous Friday

Popped in to say Welcome to the Totally Useless SAL. We're having lots of fun and we're so glad to have you. Next report due at the NEW Moon, April 25th or thereabouts.

You asked me about a button and that is soooo awfully nice of you. If you would e-mail me at yoyo_9203 at yahoo dot com I'll get one to you.

What a great blog you have here, I love this particular post, I might try to participate in your Friday Finish after I read more of your blog and get it figured out a little better.

Your talent never ceases to amaze me. Once again I've stretched the theme a smidge to suit my purposes, but I'm exceedingly pleased with my Finished for Friday this week! (and it just happened!)

Bea said...

Your handwork is beautiful! The detail is amazing.

Does finishing my husband's bad back count? (He had a procedure done today. I REALLY need it to be finished).

Texasholly said...

I love it! So fun. I haven't made it through the books yet, I barely made it through the movies...

I did a lot. Not sure anything actually was completed. Good question!

Eileen said...

I'll bet this was a lot of fun to stitch up.. all the great colors. Love it!
And yes. Lord of the Rings is one of my favorites. But ever since the movie.. I confess I have not read the series more than twice through. And the problem with that is.. you totally miss out on the Tom Bombadil part.
