Back From The Framers

I got the wedding sampler back from the framers yesterday. I think it turned out good. I didn't get a good pic, maybe hubby can take one for me later when he gets home.  Hopefully the kids will like it. It will be a couple of months before I see them to give it to them.

 I've been stitching on the Romantique Sampler and will post when finished with this part. I stitched this small 4x4 charted canvas called Spring Flower Garden. It was a freebie on this site. I haven't decided how I will finish it. Any ideas?

Swap Received and a Finish

I participated in a spring swap hosted by Parsley and yesterday I received my swap from my partner Jill . As it turns out I had the same person that had my name. I received the cutest little spring hand towel with chicks on it, a little scratch pad and ribbon, also a cute little bear figure. And pretty spring colors of DMC. For the handmade item she made a biscornu. It is so cute with bunnies and chicks and carrots on it. She says it was her first time making a biscornu, but she did a beautiful job.Thank you so much Jill.   
I finally got around to doing this pattern I have had for a few months. The stitching went fine, it was when I was doing the finishing that  I had problems. What you would think would take  probably an hour at the least to do, took forever for me to do. At least it seems that way. I'm not good with sewing machines. But I guess all in all it turned out ok. The pattern is called Journal Rose by Crabapple Hill.
