Christmas Sampler finished!!

Hello,
I am so pleased to announce that I finished the Christmas Sampler last night!  I was a fun stitch, and the last thing to be done was the lambs with french knots, so they wouldn't get crushed with the hoop.

Here are a couple of pictures.

Now it's off to Manifesto.

Wow, what a finish. Congratulations. It is a remarkable piece.

I just started following these blogs; I'll have to try to figure out how long this oak you to stitch.

So, do you have another waiting in the wings?

Great stitching.
