Quaker Faith Hope Love - Finished

Last night I finished "Quaker Faith Hope Love" © Midsummer Stitching for the SAL with Carol R., yeah!

Today the weather is in strong contrast to the weather in last few days, it's a very fine autumn day, the bracing air of autumn make my mind well-balanced and feel so fresh!

Here is my finished piece...
It was so fun to stitch along with my dear friend!


Quaker Faith...


Quaker Hope...


and Quaker Love...


These photos don't show the linen colour justice, I think the photo of "Love" is the most closest to the real colour.
I'm going to order a frame for this piece, but this month the budget is tight (lol), so I hope I can get frames in a few months! :0

Carol and I are planning to do private SAL again, we are going to stitch LHN piece next time together!
I'm very not good at setting the time for large piece SAL, though SAL for small piece is so fun and it motivates me to work on the same piece with dear friend!

Next time I will share my finished piece of "Blessings Be Thine" with you!
(I just finished it a short time ago!)

Take care and thanks for visiting!
Happy stitching :)




Design : "Quaker Faith Hope Love" © Midsummer Stitching
Fabric : 40ct Wichelt linen (Sandstone / Tea)

It's beautiful Yuko! Did you change the colour of Hope as it shows up just fine? The sun is out today so I will try and get a good picture of mine for you to see. Thank you for an enjoyable SAL and I am looking forward to our LHN one very soon.

I love your Quaker design. The colors are gorgeous :)

You are like me, I stitch pieces and put them aside until I have money to get them framed!

I can't wait to see what frame you chose for the design :)

On one of my posts about the Bienvenue design, I wrote down the ISBN for the book it came from. Hopefully that helps you find the book at your local bookstore :)

Have a great week!!

Hi Yuko,
I have been away from blogging for a while, due to the trouble with my Google account. I am glad you found my new blog. The Quakers look lovely and the colors are beautiful. I also have troubles with my PIL. I am a different religion then my husband's family and they tell me they all will go to Heaven together and I will be left behind! So I understand your anger and frustration. I hope the situation improves.

Just another quick note...I see my name comes up as the Wordpress ID and not the name you know me as....Jennifer. So Speedycat11 is me!

It looks gorgeous and I love your photos, too. It is very dificult to show the realistic colour of linen through photos, but here it looks great! Congratulations on this wonderful finish. :)

I've received your email, I'm glad thinks are looking more positive for you.

A wonderful Quaker finish. I know you will eventually get a frame that sets it off beautifully.
