Tatted doilies and Cross Stitch Sampler

Finished Nancy Tracy's Doily. It is tatted with size 10 Lizbeth threads.
Started the Spring Doily by Renulek and tatted with size 40 Lizbeth Blue Ice.

Finished the sampler found in a thrift shop for $2. An unknown person x-stitched the alphabet  and saying. I undid all the knots on the back and completed the rest.  It is a 1970's kit, stamped on 100% Belgian Linen. The thread was missing.
 Started the binding and have 3 more sides to do. The applique flower border is hand and the top blocks are machine. Lots of quilting and glad it is at the end to enjoy.
 I am linking up with Kathy's Quilts

You've been busy! I do like the idea of finishing the sampler, it's a shame to have it half done and abandoned.

I love to see your tatting... it is so intricate, and I know how difficult it is, so that makes it even more amazing!
And so fun that you adopted a UFO and finished it!
Enjoy your binding!
