Sampler Sharing Finale!

the Big One!
The 2010 finish that has been stored away...
waiting for wall space so she can take her place on a larger
sampler wall!

Ann Rayner Sampler 1839

It's been so long since I stitched her,
I'd have to look to be sure, but I believe I used my own conversion
using Hand Dyed Fibers silks on this one.

and of course Lakeside Linens...
looks to be Vintage Exemplar again...or maybe Lt Exemplar!

I went with a simple,
yet bold frame.

I didn't want anything in the molding to take away from
the sampler itself.
It was such a labor of love!

And I remember racing the clock on New Year's Eve 2010.
I got the last stitches put in JUST before midnight!

And two and a half years later....

she's ready for hanging!
Once I get the samplers hung in the new digs,
you'll be the first to see!

Beautiful! I love this one, Kim! The frame you chose is just lovely, perfect for this piece!

I love your colour conversion too! Did you skip the over one's or modified them? I have found myself having more of a hard time with them now!

Enjoy your Sunday!

It looks great Kim. The frame is perfect!!

I just got mine back yesterday and I'm not too thrilled with my frame, but it will have to be okay. To expensive to have reframed!!

How is your new place??
