4 Seasons update

I spent last week working on my 4 Seasons Sampler and I'm still loving every stitch of it

I just have to do the floral band and then I'll be half done but that's a job for next month.
Boy was I glad to finish the beehive in the middle, it's done in Smyrna crosses and I was really fed up with them by the time I was done!

Yesterday I went down to The Nimble Thimble to meet up with friends from Needlecraft Haven and of course a little stash came home with me :)
I'll be starting the Buttons & Beads on Wednesday as a SAL with Ursh who claimed I twisted her arm to buy the kit but I never laid a finger on her, honest

I love the progress on the Seasons Sampler! The tricky stitches were worth it.
Glad you enjoyed the Nimble Thimble trip. I've spoken to Chris on the phone but never made it up there. Strangely enough one of the charts I bought from her is the blue and white Christmas trees Buttons and Beads design!
It's a lovely stitch, quite quick and looks fantastic when finished.

4 SS looks fab, Lindsay! Awesome stash too. I've had my eye on those Lizzie*Kate alphabet charts...

What a pretty sampler, I've never seen that one before. It's always fun buying new stash, especially in person rather than over the internet.
