Stitched and Noted

Hi Stitching Friends!

I have a few photos to share of some completed Summer House Stitche Workes designs that have been sent to me. It is so rewarding to me to see how stitchers have interpreted my designs. The first photo to share is from Patti R and her wonderful finish of Calico Sampler.

Patti used the recommended linen and floss and her sister, Petra Dennis sewed the wonderful quilt finish. Petra has her own finishing business, so if you are in need of some finishing work, here is her website: I love the fabrics she chose, they just set off the stitching perfectly.

The next finish is Star from Jeanne Horton of Country Sampler in Spring Green, WI.

Jeanne's shop model is stitched on 28 ct. Natural linen. She and her girls have kitted up the chart, fabric and floss. If you are interested in her kit, here is her website: I wish her shop was closer to me, as the photos of her displays of quilts, needlework and antiques are very inspiring.

I hope you have enjoyed this little show and tell and if you have any finishes of my designs, email them to me, as I would love to showcase them as well.

Next week's post will be a sneak peak of my newest design. I have the model nearing completion and the needlecase is finished. I still haven't finalized a name for her, I have several possibilities, hmmm, maybe I will let all of you vote on her name...

Enjoy the Spring and have a Happy Mother's Day this weekend.
