Baby sampler start







Well, another day, another baby sampler. Here is a photo of one recently completed and then one of the new one I just started. I counted this morning and this is #9. Note to self - when copying a pattern from a magazine make sure you get the symbols too - makes it a lot easier to stitch LOL. I also do a little swedish weaving. Finished an afghan yesterday for a wedding in June. This is going to a cousin so no wedding sampler - something simpler instead.
Hmm - photos are not ending up where I want them. Will have to work at that. Will have to make them smaller too when adding more than one I see. I guess that's what happens when you are new at this. Please bear with me as I work this out. How to have a bad day - accept delivery of a new gas stove and they can't get the oven to work and now we are waiting for the "specialist". Accept delivery of a new table and 6 chairs and the finish is peeling off the chairs as you unpackage them. Accept delivery of a new sofa bed and there is an 8 inch gap at the top of the bed, there are grease stains on the front of it, some fabric is hanging down from underneath and you have to be 6 feet tall to sit on it and have your feet touch the floor. The table and chairs were returned last night and the sofa will be going back ASAP. Now, will have to start hunting all over again. @#$^#@$%^#$%^&( Get the picture!

I just love the look of that swedish weaving. One day I will have to try that. One day...

Good luck with the furniture hunting! I hope round two is less stressful for you.

Such a cute baby sampler and I love your afgan. What a shame about all that furniture. Isn't it just typical of this day & age. Nothing seems to arrive in perfect condition anymore.

Your winter home? Do you have two homes and spend summer in one and winter in the other?
