Pineapples and Reindeers

My first sampler of the year is finished. Yeah! Okay, Okay it's only 1-1/4x2 inches, but I am celebrating just the same. Not only is it my first sampler of the year it's also my first silk gauze finish.
The Pineapple Sampler:  

I'm still not sure how I will frame it. I am trying to decide if I should mat it or not. 

Erin posted on HoE that she had received her ornament so now I can share a picture.


The Reindeer Christmas is by Earth Threads. The pattern is from the 2000 annual ornament kit. I stitched Erin's on 32ct Lambswool with the recommended fibers and substituted an "E" for the tree button in the center block.

I made the tuck pillow following this tutorial on Focus on Finishing. Lots of great finishing ideas and tutorials here, stop by and take a look. Thanks Anne S.

I got in a few more hours on AHRH last week and also worked on some ornaments. I should be have some pictures to share in the next post.  Until then.....

Thanks for stopping by,
