These are a few of the needlework projects I am planning on making this year. One, of course, is a beautiful design, from Beehive Needleworks. I had planned on having this one done by this Christmas, but of course, time ran out! The other pattern is by Notforgotten Farms, Lori Brechlin. I have looked at this pattern online several times, but the cross stitch shop near my home actually had a copy so I finally bought it. I don't know why I procrastinate when shopping for cross stitch pattern....I know I am going to buy them sooner or later any way! I also purchased this "Book of Days" journal from R&R. It was on the sale table for $3, and although it is from 1999 (yikes!) I bought it anyway...it has some nice little motif patterns. Then last but not least, is one of my FAVORITE magazines....Sampler and Antique Needlework. So many good articles...well, those are on my "to-do" list...but first I have to make 5 more baby samplers!!

You picked out some great pattern to stitch. I'm not too familiar with Beehive Needleworks, but the couple patterns that I've seen I have really liked a lot! And I, like you, pick up outdated books. You know that eventually the days will line up in some year! And five baby samplers! Yikes. Hope you picked fast and easy ones!!
