Never Ending Sampler Panel 3 Band 4

Sorry for the delay in getting back to the sampler ladies.  I was running behind on the Spring 2018 issue of Crazy Quilt Quarterly magazine.  I have that done now and it will be released on February 1st.

So for today, I have Band 4 of Panel 3 of the Never Ending Sampler.  Here's the entire sampler so far:

And here is band 4:

This is worked entirely in cross stitch.  When choosing your colors, think in terms of Spring.  Daffodils and shamrocks or daffodils and hearts.

Here's Band 4 with the band 3 overlap for placement purposes:



Happy Stitching!

More Embroidered Door Hangers

Here are a few more embroidered door hangers that I've made:




These patterns are from my vintage iron-on transfer embroidery pattern collection.  I've been collecting them for years and years.  I find them at flea markets and antique shops.  I've bought a few from Ebay and Etsy too.  And on rare occasion, I get lucky and find them at garage sales!

Embroidered Door Hangers

I've been busy working on the Spring issue of Crazy Quilt Quarterly magazine.  I'm running late on it due to the holidays.  So please forgive me for not posting much lately.  As soon as I'm done with it, I'll get back to the Never Ending Sampler Stitch-Along and all the other things that I usually post about.

I've been doing some stitching and enjoying my collection of vintage iron-on embroidery patterns:




These are Crayon Tinted and then embroidered.  I sewed them together over the weekend.  My husband was kind enough to stuff them for me!!!

I have more pieces to sew together and will post them when I have them done.

For now, I have to get back to the magazine so I have it ready for everyone on February 1st!
