'His eye is on the Sparrow' Is Complete...

This beautiful project is complete !
is a cross stitch design from 
Beth Twist at Heartstring Samplery.

I started this project on Feb. 8, 2016
and ended in Jan. 2019.

Stitch count is 435 x 363
Stitched on 28 ct. Cashel linen in 
'Country Mocha' finish.

I'm sad to see it come to an end.
It has been my 'go to' stitching 
for a long time, and has kept me company
through endless evenings of stitching.

I now need to patiently wait until I can 
(hopefully) locate an old frame large enough
to work with this piece.  
Design size is roughly 31 in. x 26 in.

While at a local thrift store,
I spied this gorgeous wool skirt.
Could not resist !

1.00 for about a half yard of usable wool.
I have just the place for it.
(You can read about my process
by going to REPURPOSED.)

We are enjoying some very beautiful,
warm days here in PA.
Birds are chattering and our little historic town 
is bustling with activity.

Enjoy your day Friends ...


  1. Wow ...your needlepoint project is gorgeous ! A beautiful heirloom !!! Hope you find a very special frame for it !!!! I never would have had the patience for all the wonderful details .

  2. Congratulations, Rose! It's such a beautiful piece of work...the loveliest of patterns. I'm down to the lower right corner and need to get back to it. Like you, I have enjoyed stitching on this beauty more than I ever would have imagined! Well done. (I'm so proud of you! :))

  4. Wow! Wow! Wow! I am in total awe. It is magnificent!!! Congratulations on your finish.
    A gorgeous 2 days in northern Ohio. The bird were so loud this morning along with a woodpecker. I wish it could last longer.

  5. How Amazing!!!! Just wonderful!!!!I love the skirt you found what great texture.

  6. We have a store here in our small town where I can scoop up some wool sometimes. Great find. your sampler would have probable taken me 10 years to finish. LOL Great job Rose! Janice

  7. I started His Eye is on the Sparrow 2 or 3 years ago. I started with the border and still have not finished that! When I’m working on WIPs, it’s easier to grab something much smaller. It is a gorgeous piece and I really need to make an effort to stitch on this project on a more regular basis.

  8. I don't comment often, but do follow your progress. What a beautiful piece!

  9. This piece just amazes me every time I see it.
    You might look at stretcher bars to make frames for canvas, also Hobby Lobby type stores have different size packaged wood to build frames for any size you would need.

  10. It is so pretty. You did such a nice job. I haven't had much luck finding a new project that kept me as engaged as that one. I am so glad that its warmer for you right now. I love that wool in that skirt. What a find. Have a lovely day.

  11. I just can't get over the size of that gorgeous piece! What a treasure!

  12. Congrats! Gorgeous piece that's been 3 years in the making!


So glad to have you here visiting...
would love to hear your thoughts !
