A Finish

I Finished "My Lady's Quaker," and I am really proud of it.
Next I will be starting her gentleman.


  1. It looks so great, Karyn. You've done a wonderful job!

    I feel badly that I'm trailing so far behind you! I'm working on it this morning! :)

  2. are so talented. I hope you won't snicker and giggle when I show off my first project. LOL

  3. Oh this is so lovely! I'm glad that you have found this hobby to suits you well.

  4. Wow Karyn, that SAL went by quick!! Congrats on a lovely finish! What are you going to do next??

  5. Thanks so much ladies :) You make me blush...this is my first finish, and my first SAL, as I am a "newish" stitcher.

    Calico...oh now girl, you are doing great and 'member this is my only crafty have many going at once ;)

    Parsely...never! I can't wait to see you learn and progress :) I just taught myself in May.

    Debi...thanks, I do really enjoy it :) all the perty colors of the thread, I am like a kid with a new Barbie outfit

    Bizee....I am working on the LHN Colonial Homes...halfway finished now, and I am going to the gentleman
    that goes with the lady :)I will post a pic of him...he is dashing!

    Hugs :)

  6. hey that is so pretty!! Sorry I wasn't online at all last night and during work. I am just seeing it. It is truly beautiful, Karyn!

  7. Good job lady!

    I had to laugh, I was like.. hmm should I tell her she forgot ab and c,, then I looked again..

    now you should tell me to wake up!

  8. are too funny Devri...actually look close....the alphabet is missing a lower case letter....but which one? I still cannot figure out if the designer meant to leave it out or if it was a booboo :)

    Grandma Teakettle's theory is that she did it so that the letters would fit in a nice 3 row patter.

    Another stitcher in the SAL said that often, old colonial samplers left out the "j" and "v" since they were not in the original alphabet.

    very interesting

  9. I found your blog through a comment yo left on Miss Jane's Stitching blog. The quaker turned out so great! I just love this one and look forward to seeing the Gentleman's Quaker.

  10. I just read your comment that this is your FIRST finish! WOW!!!! Fantastic. I hope you keep with it. I have been stitching since I was 15 and just love it.

  11. I love it Karyn. The colors are beautiful.
