Amish Rules



I have finished Amish Rules & I love how it turned out!!! The words on it are so perfect for me.
We live a very modest lifestyle. I try to be courteous in all I say & do. If I make a promise, I keep it. I share with others the things that I have been blessed with.
This pattern is by Heart in Hand. Someone on the 123 message board showed their finish a while back & I fell in love with it. I asked about the pattern & she sold it to me. Before I even had a chance to start it, someone emailed me, asking if they could buy it when I was finished. I said sure! She even sent the money long ago!!!!!
The pattern had a border around it, but personally, I like it without the border. We will be able to 'enhance the picture' with the frame we make for it.
The other pictures I am posting have been taken from my front window one morning & my back window another morning. If you notice the birds....there is a downy woodpecker on the post of the birdhouse & a bluebird on top of the post....I love these two types of birds, so to capture both of them together just made my day!
I now need to decide if I am going to work on another WIP or if I am going to start something new. I have something laid out, so I MAY start it!!!!! What's one more WIP?!?!?!?!
Have a great rest of the week & weekend!!!

Oh Shari,
Amish Rules is lovely. Your DH's custom frame will be the prettiest border for it.

Great pictures from home, too.

I'm looking forward to seeing what's next from your stitching stash. Your work is always wonderful.

A very beautiful finish, Shari.
I love the pictures that show a vew from your windows. We also have a woodpecker visit us every winter and he climbs up and down the pole of the bird's feeding place. I have already seen him in the neighbouring trees this autumn.
