First Sampler Completed


Some lightening needles have completed one of my first sampler patterns, Mary Long. I just received this in the mail an hour ago and I can hardly wait to frame it. She did a beautiful job stitching...front and back look perfect.
I will print charts tomorrow and list this in my ebay store as soon as I have it framed for photos for the cover. I will also be selling charts with or without floss. Charted for DMC but model is shown with my over dyed floss.
Chart only will be $12.99 With my floss $19.99.
Shown stitched on my hand tinted 32ct linen. Finished size is 10 x 11". 177x164 stitches.
 
Back to patterns....I am going to have a hard time keeping 23 model stitchers busy....especially when one is as fast as this one!
 
Thanks for stopping by.
Nancy
P.S. To answer a few questions...the walkway and fence are my medium taupe, a rose brown and the photo looks more pink than it really is. The flowers are faded pink and the berry border is a dark rose. Hand dyed looks so much nicer than regular DMC.

  5. It is just beautiful! You are so right when you say that the stitching program doesn't do it justice.
