I love it all: embroidery, canvaswork, quilting, crochet. So much to do, so little time.

It's been a while, so Happy New Year and Happy Ground Hog's Day as well.

My large sampler project has been finished for a while, so I thought it was about time that I showed it here.

The saying at the bottom of the project
(which I love)
is the rather long name of this piece
by Needle Work Press.
The size is 406 by 95 stitches!

My awesome framer finished it
in record time.
It's hard to tell from the photo,
but the frame is a dark blue,
which matches the DMC 939
that probably looks like black in this photo.
I'm extremely happy with the
way this piece was finished!

Here are some close-ups...

The gold used for the three leaves in the dark blue bars
and also the filling in the bottom "chain"
was recommended for many of the motifs.
As you can see, it wouldn't have shown up,
so I substituted some of the brighter colors instead.

I have some smaller finishes, too...

The Prairie Schooler start that I showed
at the end of last year.

A freebie from Bent Creek.

Last but not least,
another Prairie Schooler design
from the Stars and Stripes leaflet.

Well, I'm all caught up on finishes.
Next time, we'll take a look at
what I've got going for WIPs.

Thanks, as always, for stopping by.
