WIP- House Sampler

House Sampler WIP

I finally got the camera out and my husband took a photo of my House Sampler WIP. As you can see, I haven't done too much of it. This branch will have a mirror image sort of branch with a bird, and under both branches will be homes. You can see the top of the house that is just under the branch. I am excited about doing this huge sampler, even though I really don't have time for a new project right now.

All the trick or treaters have gone home now. We didn't have that many this year, really. I think a lot of folks just don't trick or treat anymore. When I was a kid, I recall the streets being full of children in shiny costumes. That was a great time! I loved it so when our kids were small and we took them out in their costumes. Those were wonderful times, full of great memories.

It's off now to prepare for another day. I hope you had a wonderful Wednesday, and if you celebrate Halloween I hope you had a good one.

    It's a nice start - cute bird!

    Good luck with your Master's - the work will all be worthwhile!

    Great start on your house sampler. What a great idea! And of course, that bird! I, too, miss the "old-time" trick-or-treating, but like you said, the memories are wonderful. Hang in there with your Masters! The teachers in my family have shared your sentiments! LOL

    Oh, how I wish I knew how to do that! And I'm sure that you'll fall into the routine with the Master's Program soon enough. Enjoy the weekend. Blessings... Polly

    I love seeing your needlework.

    We had only 2 groups stop by to trick or treat this year.

    I thinks it's wonderful that you are working on your masters! I think I'd have bad dreams if I had homework due again ;-)
