Cyra ~ More on the Stitch Sampler

I've been busy on my genealogy work over the last couple of weeks, hence not much happening on the stitching side over here in NZ. I have made a great headway on one particular small branch of my tree, and I always get a lump in my throat when surprises pop up in my research. It is so interesting to discover what people in my tree have been up to.

But now I've actually got some stitching things done again I can show you what I've been up to.

My Embroidery Sampler has two small simple stitch bands added.
(sorry the photo seems blurred)

....and here is the full sampler so far.



The 12" Block Seven for my Blues Blanket is That One Sister
Again, I have adapted the pattern to suit my personal preference (the freeformer in me always wants to take over, lol).


And....... tada!!!!
This is a sneak preview of a pattern that I will be releasing soon.


Tony & I have been out for a couple of coastal walks, all close to our home.
The first photo is Opunake beach from the cliff top (looking north across to Middleton Bay), and the second photo is the walk past Opunake lake and heading south to the next bay.

Two very different coast views and an enjoyable couple of days adventures.

See you next week when I hope to have more of the sampler done, and another 12" square, 
plus whatever else takes my fancy.

It's always nice to know another genealogy addict, lol. I have found a lot of skeletons in my family closets.

The sampler is looking so good and I love the blue crochet piece, fabulous as usual. Your sneak peek makes me want to see more!

Such pretty coastlines, I used to be a hour away from Galveston, but no more, now we at least have a lake again since the drought ended.

That's funny, I do genealogy, too! And I agree, it's interesting to follow the family tree. I also like to visit graveyards.... LOVE your sampler and also the crocheted block. Hope you were far away from the hurricane.

The sneak peek looks fabulous, and the blue block is wonderful as always. Love the pics of the coastline.
