New Starts

While between projects right before the new year, I picked up A Quaker Christmas and put a few more stitches in.  Before and after shots:

On New Year's Day, just after midnight, I started The Yellow House Sampler.  I've been wanting to do this one for years.  Love the colors and if you look closely, you'll see a tiny Adam and Eve at the top.

Since I just could not wait on Blessings Be Thine, I started it also!  Not much done, but it's a start.  Last night I wasn't too sure of the green, as it wasn't showing up as dark as I'd hoped, but in the light today it looks better.  Any thoughts??  Should I go darker?  

Thanks for stopping by!

Those are beautiful, Mary. I have two Quaker patterns I hope to do. Yours are inspiring to say the least!

Two great new starts - we can't always wait to start a new design, can we? Lol.
Nice progress on the Quaker piece.

Your Quaker Christmas is just lovely, Mary... And both of your new starts will be such fun to follow along on!

Very nice progress and beautiful starts. I like the green in Blessings but I tend to go with whatever a designer recommends. Congratulations on finding the pattern also, it's been on my wish list for years.
