A Couple of Stitchin' Oldies

Gentle Friends, I'm still stitchin away on my Christmas present piece so I'll post a couple more pieces from my stitching past... these two Quakers I really enjoyed stitching and still love seeing every day...

... my version of the Beatrix Potter Quaker sampler... 

.
... and the Companion Beatrix Potter Quaker... I really like how the second one is framed much better than the first.  I like a really tight framing and since the "Historic" Quakers were framed tight, that really appeals to me... and if I could go back I would tighten up and have no "white" space between the stitching and the frame.... but hind site is 20/20!!

There you go sports fans, thanks for stopping by do stop again!!

Good Thoughts! Good Words! Good Deeds!

  1. Both of your Quaker flashbacks are beautiful, Edgar! They are very appealing with their colors and frame selections. Enjoy your week!

  2. They are both beautiful I prefer mine with a 1/2 in border. When they are too close I feel like it looks unfinished...my 2 cents worth.

  3. These pieces are both very pretty. I know the second framing is more true to the Quaker tradition, but unlike you I am partial to the framing on the first piece. Everyone has their own preferences.

  4. Lovely samplers. I stitched the first but not the companion. Seeing yours makes me think I need to stitch that one too.
