Wanna see.......

my first two releases of 2013? Of course you do! I've already teased you with sneak peeks of each one. So to end the suspense, here they are!
This is "Hope of the Heart". I stitched it on Zweigart 32ct "Cloudy Day Grey" lugana. Design size is 68 x 87. This design was inspired by a lovely quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson. I embellished this sampler by using 1/4" black buttons for Mr. Snowman's peepers, and tiny black beads for his mouth.
 This is "Forever Love", which was stitched on Zweigart 32ct "Golden Harvest" lugana. Design size is 95 x 61. I was inspired by a well known scripture passage from 1 Corinthians 13: 7-8 which says: “Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails.”

I want to thank all of you who have commented on the WTF Give-away post. Also, a warm welcome to any new followers. The follower count is up to 45, so we're almost there! When I reach 50, I'll give away a Silver Creek Samplers pattern of your choice, brand new, or golden oldie. Just become a follower of my blog and leave a comment telling me your favorite SCS pattern.

Thanks for stopping by!
