Saturday was the last Homespun Gathering day for 2016.  The Gatherings are always filled with good food, laughter and beautiful needlework.  This is a Scarlet Letter piece which Debby stitched.

Debby also stitched this piece by Blackbird Designs.  It's hard to resist a sampler with Adam and Eve and a big old red house.

Judy has also had a set of busy hands and needles.  This was a collection of freebies designed by Paulette Stewart of Plum Street Samplers --a great piece and she stitched using just four colors of fibers.

Judy also stitched this piece, I think the designer is Barbara Ann.  A great marriage sampler, so many wonderful elements in this piece.

Can't remember the name of the piece, the designer is Prairie Schooler.  Mary Ann did a fabulous job with the stitching--a great piece for Christmas or to celebrate winter.

Delilah's birthday gift signature quilt--a true heirloom.  

Cathy stitched this club piece from Tomorrow's Sampler club.  Seeing this piece makes me want to join this club.

I'm a little fuzzy on who stitched this piece, maybe Mary.  A great fabric selection-- the snow man and snow woman look like they are the woods in the middle of a snowstorm.  

Jane was catching up on club pieces, this one by Stacy Nash.  A great fall finish.

Debby had prepared a delicious chicken pot pie, Ruth had a tasty bean dip and Cathy had banana pudding!  Good food, beautiful needlework, and dear friends, it just doesn't get any better.  


  1. Thanks for sharing all these wonderful projects. I really enjoyed seeing all of them!

  2. Beautiful projects!! I agree that it doesn't get any better than to have good food, friends, and time to stitch together. Happy stitching...............

  3. Such a beautiful collection of stitchery--some that would tempt me if I was still involved with cross-stitch. But I barely find any time to quilt. Speaking of quilts, I really like the signature quilt. : )

  8. Right you are, Betty. It was an adaptation of Love Never Fails by Barbara Ana Designs. I think it was high time I traded my wedding sampler on Aida for this much better one on linen. ๐Ÿ™‚
