Come visit with me as I stitch and craft my way from one Christmas to the next - I like to have Christmas projects close by me all year. I have a particular fondness for Santas and Angels. If you have the time, leave a comment so I know you've visited.

HD - Wedding Sampler finished


I am so pleased to have finished this Sampler for my niece.  As usual, the picture doesn't really do it justice.  The fabric is not really quite so dark, and the date isn't really leaning uphill.  I found this chart quite frustrating to stitch.  The chart wasn't true to the picture that came with it, and I found it necessary to change the shape of the hearts and also the birds, to smooth out the square edges. The chart was Beautiful Birds Cross Stitch from Modern Cross Stitch Patterns.

Sorry to hear that it gave you so many problems, but it's a very cute finish. I'm sure your niece will love it.

What a pity it was such a chore to stitch. It is one of the nicest wedding samplers I have seen and you've done an amazing job on it.
