Peacock sampler

Here's a WIP Pam designed for a hornbook Greg will create. This is stitched on 28 count over 1 and as usual her stitching is beautiful! This is a sampler pattern she designed for us to sell with a hornbook at the upcoming Needlework Guild of Minnesota retreat in August. I'll stitch it on 32 count over 2 and we'll frame that one. I love it!

Peacock smalls for a box

Leslie here: I love smalls! I love stitching them and the thought of using them. The finishing? Well, not so much but I'm going to keep trying. Here's my plan. Ask Greg to make a wooden box for stitching tools, split it in half so it will lie flat on a table while stitching. I've finished stitching these now on to the finishing.

Top to bottom - scissor fob, needle case, inside lid of box (which will include a pincushion attached to the little blank rectangle in the middle). My pal Pam's the designer - she created these patterns just listening to me blather on. Aren't they great patterns? The color choices are mine.
