Completed sampler photos!






Well, this is it, the finished thing.  It's not mounted/stretched yet as I don't have the necessary size of board in stock, but I gave it a press the other day and took some shots anyway or else I may have had to keep you waiting ad infinitum!

I started to blog about this piece on 9 April 2012, so I will have started to stitch it around the 7th.  It was finished on 21 October 2013 meaning that it took about 18 months to complete.  However, that's a bit misleading as I didn't work on it actively for about half of that time, so it was more like a 9 month project in reality.  It was rather challenging in parts and I learned some new things and simplified others so that I didn't have to learn too much new stuff!  Hope you enjoyed it all anyway.=)

Now, time for something new.....

Meraviglioso...meraviglioso...un mix di punti messi in insieme in un modo così armonico .....peccato che con il punto croce non vado d'accordo...mi sarebbe piaciuto farlo...

There is so many details to look at on this sampler, and I will miss reading about the progress. So you will have to start another WIPW project!
Once this beauty is framed it will give a lot of charm to your home.

This is beautiful. I loved seeing it 'progress' in your posts, but it's also really good to see it completely finished, too :-)

Rachel said...

It turned out beautifully. The "window" in particular!
