Sampler Sunday

Not a lot of time for stitching this past week and next; my classes are finishing up on the 31st, so it's crunch time for all those assignments I procrastinated on during Christmas, the flu and most of all, during the 15-start challenge. I haven't even had time to go to the needlework shop to poke around and pick up the wonderful charts I've ordered. So here's the little bit I accomplished on the Gingham Dog:



And a little more on Ann Rayner:


"You'd better get back to work instead of frittering away time on the Internet!"


Happy week!

Both are looking great! Good luck with all the classwork.

Deb said...

Even a little progress is good progress! You'll be done with your classes in no time and hopefully you'll have more time for stitching. Can't wait to see what is awaiting you at the LNS!!

Michele said...

Love the samplers and love that sassy little bunny!

Beth said...

Good luck with your classwork, and your stitching is terrific!

I need Elvis to keep me on track!! Your progress is amazing, Glenna! Loving the CHS design!

Jules said...

I think your rabbit is reading my mind too! LOL!!! Then again, since I finished my degree last fall and things have died down a bit at the shop, I find myself with too much time on my hands. So, I try to divide my time (on days off) between the net and stitching.

Good luck with end of term stuff!!!

Catherine said...

Good luck with your classwork! Can't wait to see what you have waiting at the shop!

Great stitches - I am really loving the colors in Ann!

Melissa said...

Beautiful, both of them! I have to pull out my Gingham chart too!

Elvis has the look down pat! ;-)

I saw the Elvis haircut just the other day in a magazine. The lady, a TV actress, said it was the worse 'do she ever had. Looks great on the flirty boy though!

Annemarie said...

Your progress may not seem much to you, but I think you did wonderfully well. As always, everything looks just perfect. Good luck with your work (and with trying not to get distracted by your stitching).

KarenV said...

I'm loving the Gingham Dog, such great colour! Good luck with your assignments.

Siobhan said...

Oh my gosh, both are gorgeous, Glenna! You're killing me here... two things I want to start and the pics of your progress and oh, sooooo wonderful. Good luck with all the classwork!

Alice said...

Well here's hoping the assignments go quickly so you can get back to the good stuff!

Katrina said...

Pretty samplers!!!! Hope all the class work goes quickly so you can get back to stitching ;-).

Giovanna said...

So pretty - lovely colours on both!

Karen M said...

Elvis is quite the task master, isn't he? That hairy eyeball he's giving you is scary. I'd get back to work if I were you!

DonnaSews said...

I love Ann Raynor and yours is just beautiful. I was going to stitch this one but the hair on the woman and man stumped me. I am looking forward to watching your progress on this sampler. Enjoy.

Of course, if suitable treats were provided, perhaps Elvis and the other buns would "help" you with your assignments. Thus either providing you with splendid work done on time or valid reasons as to why your assignments are late.

Michelle said...

Good luck with your class work. Both pieces are looking beautiful - love the colors!

Laurie in Iowa said...

Best of luck with your class work. Love the snap of the bunny.

Glenna - it is so fun seeing your beautiful bunny photos - they are so darling - I'm sure you've said before but is the fluffy one an angora bunny? thanks for printing the blue cheese dressing recipe - I adore blue cheese dressing so I have to make that one - it would be good on paper bags I'm sure LOL! Love all your sampler shots - you have some beautiful projects selected for the challenge. I will enjoy watching them come alive. Have a good week - Melody

Both pieces look great!

Cari said...

Love your stitching and the bunny pic too!! Good luck on the school work...you'll do great I'm sure.

Carol said...

Beautiful work, Glenna. And I think I need to put the photo of your bunny telling me to stop "frittering away time on the Internet" right on my computer screen. Our internet was down all day yesterday and it is truly amazing how much I got done around the house!!

Nicole said...

Both samplers are looking beautiful!! I'm finally getting Ann soon (it was on back order for about a month)! :)

Nancy said...

Nice progress on both of your samplers. Your stitching is always so pretty! You better listen to that bunny. He looks like he is really watching you!

Kate said...

I understand what you feel little bunny... you want your human to finish her art work and give some time to you guys. How about you go back to your rabbit hutch and take for a nap for a while and soon your human will be ready for you.

Pretty stitching! Love the look on Elvis face!

Daffycat said...

Elvis gives such good advice. Too bad it's so hard to follow that top!
