I have finished my sampler. I’m going to the framer today at lunch time. I’m a little scared about how much it will cost but it has to be done properly for something like this

To say I am happy would be an understatement!

I didn’t get a chance to add pics yesterday as OH dragged me off food shopping, as he won’t go on his own (probably wished he had, as I was on a serious munchy mission)

I can stitch other things now!!! yippee

Update: Here are the piccies! The ribbon work was easier than I thought it would be and really makes this sampler special.

There are more photos and more info on this design in 2007 Finishes

ribbon work

Well I was right to be scared of how much the framer will cost but I am happy with the work of the framer I have chosen, we spent ages choosing mounts and frames. Should be ready in 1 to 2 weeks (depends on how long the frame takes to be ordered)
