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.
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.


  1. Beautiful. Can I ask what pink you used for it?

    Really is stunning Nancy xx

  2. Wow, that looks fab! Love the design and the colours!

  3. Very pretty. I like the pink too!

  4. That is so pretty!! Well done, you did a great job!

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

  6. Beautiful stitching and gorgeous pattern! :D
