A Finish And More Progress

Hello, dear friend, and welcome to the unveiling of my finish of the WIP known as "My Sewing Sampler," designed by our dear friend and stitchy sister, The Blue Ribbon Girl herself, Belinda.

So, it is without further adieu that I present to you, Blue Ribbon Designs "My Sewing Sampler."

This was stitched on White Monaco, using the charted DMC floss and Gentle Arts Sampler Threads Bittersweet, Buckeye Scarlet, Gold Leaf, Peacock, Pine, Poppy, Red Plum, Spring Grass.

Now, I just need to head over to the framing shop and decide how I want to preserve this beauty. I am so in love with the design as well as the many treasured accents that came from Great Grandma.

 And, I also present major progress on, "God Bless Our Home," by Dutch Treat Designs.
