Sampler Finally Completed!
I finally pulled out the sampler I finished stitching a couple of months ago. To refresh your memory I made it using a cross stitch design from Australian Country Threads for the center. Then surrounded it with various borders that I found in a variety of places as well as an alphabet from an old, out of print magazine from the 90's. I have been debating how to hang it. I looked into framing it, but decided I really didn't want to go that route. So I decided to border it and quilt it. First I pulled out a variety of fabrics and chose a rather elaborate layout. I showed it to my husband who said it was way too much and took away from the stitchery. To make a long story short, he was right. I tried the elaborate border and it looked horrible so I went with simplicity and it worked. I've had this little hanger for many years and just couldn't find anything that seemed to be right to hang with it. I think I've finally found the perfect project for the hanger. What do you think?
