A Little Finish

Gentle Friends, well, I finished up Sarah much quicker than I thought I would so here's a final snaperoo of my finish...

"The Sarah Maddock Sampler - 1810" from Simply Samplers
11/20/2016 - 2/14/2017
36ct Barn Owl 
Stitched using my conversion from charted DMC Floss to Belle Soie 
(Classic Colorworks Overdyed Silk)
___________________
... I thoroughly enjoyed this piece from the start to the last stitch.  Not only was the border really fun to stitch but the different alphabets each with a different stitch and colour was lots of fun.  I love the use of different colors for the trees and the "blue" spruce trees in the signature line is a great addition.

  14. Just lovely. I love seeing old fashioned sampler like this, I must admit to always being a little nervous that the border won't match and then I would have to unpick the lot. x

  16. Beautiful finish. It DOES look like it would be fun to stitch with all of the colors. Do you normally stitch one piece at a time or do you have more than one WIP going?
