Here is the Red Sampler all finished. I know it looks a little wonky on the picture, but I had it resting on my knees when I took the photo! lol

This is stitched on Vikki Clayton's uneven linen (36ct/40ct) and it was a dream to stitch on it. A little 'thin' initially but I did enjoy stitching this. I also used a Red Mystery Spool of Vikki's too. I love the way that it has come out!

I have also started a new WIP, photos will follow. It is Quakworth and I am stitching this on 25ct cream over 1 with another one of Vikki's mystery silk spools.

In stitches

Quaker Needle Book
It seems that A Mon Ami Pierre was the pattern of choice over the Easter holiday. I have seen quite a few finishes on various blogs using the large freebie pattern "Quaker a 6 Mains". Here is my interpretation made up as a needle book. The design is stitched with Needle Necessities "Bali Hai" on 28 count cream linen. It is finished with light blue cording. The pages are blanket stitched using Bali Hai and are made of felt.

Bluebird's Needles and Pins
Here is a little Quaker finish which I stitched up in just one evening. It is Blackbird Designs Bluebird's Needles and Pins from the book With Needle and Thread. I used GAST instead of WDW. This was a present for a stitchy friend.

Finish..."Heart and Hand"
My first finish to display here! I hope it is worthy of the true art works I see on this blog. It is a little freebie from Hands to Work, "Heart and Hand". It is stitched on 28 count natural/raw linen using Needle Necessities #127 Macualvey Manor. I was very hesitant to use such a large amount of my precious NN threads, as the company has gone out of business. Luckily some friendly bloggers clued me in to the replacement threads by a company called Threadworx. I found their full color chart(and conversion from NN) at Needle In A Haystack. Go to the 'threads/ribbon' area and look up Threadworx.
I am really tempted to be part of the next exchange, the Quaker Animals. It would be my first exchange project! But I need to stick with my New Year's Resolution of not buying any new patterns, fabrics or threads. I have done very well so far, with the generosity of friends helping to relieve some of the withdrawal pains. The Quaker Animals are so lovely though, so I might be tempted.........

Hello from Jennifer/OH
Thank you for inviting me to be part of this blog. This is the first blog group that I have ever joined and I am a bit nervous. I am not very computer-savy, but I love to stitch. In the past year I have really become interested in the Quaker designs. My first Quaker finish was Carraige House Samplings "Quaker Stocking". Quite an undertaking for a first project! I have been doing needlework of all kinds since I was a girl. Please visit my blog Ohio is My Dwelling Place.

Sally's Introduction
Many thanks for the invitation Veronica! My name is Sally, I live on the east coast of England, and I discovered Quaker designs not that long ago. I don't have many at the moment but I intend on building my stash up! The first one I stitched was Papillon Creations Simple Little Quaker and straight away I was hooked. I love the simplicity of the designs and they are so easy to stitch.

I am currenly stitching Blackbird Designs Loose Feathers no.29, Where My Heart Blooms, and am also kitting up Bygone Stitches A Quaker Christmas to start as soon as I have everything together. I am very much looking forward to stitching this one and have chosen Carrie's Creations for it. I am also taking part in an RR of With My Needle Ackworth Friendship Book which is great fun to stitch.

I have a blog at which is mainly about my stitching:)

Looking forward to being a part of this blog:)

Quaker poll result and SAL
So, that's the result of the past Quaker poll.

It seems most members would partecipate to a WB quaker animals exchange. So, the one interested, please e-mail me here: Dolci Fusa mail
your address and a hypothetical deadline.
Once I'll collect all the partecipants, I'll update everyone and the blog with the effective deadline. You will only know who you will have to send your quaker animal, not from who.

Another news is the new SAL.
As the last SAL was almost forsaken (only Edgar has a concrete WIP), it's time to stitch something together.
I don't want to propose any pattern for now, let's see what you suggest. Leave a comment in this thread.
Only a thing: a small-medium size pattern, please!

Many thanks for the invite
My name is Carole and I am married to Andrew. Have been on a Quaker spree now for the better part of a year. Below you will find the first one that I stitched and since then I have stitched the companion, Tsunami Sampler and am at the moment, currently stitching Martina's Mystery 2008 Sampler.

I have also stitched Quaker Alphabet and Quaker Moments by Debbie Draper and have loads of patterns that I wish to stitch! I am also nearly finished with Quaker Style Friendship Sampler in silk. Hopefully it will be this week.

One of these days I will actually get around to stitching BP and her Companion since I have everything ready for it!

In stitches,
