Log Cabin Finish

I am so thrilled - my Log Cabin sampler is finished.  I love it, and have so enjoyed sewing this piece.
The border is really pretty.  So it will be off to the framers later this week.
I used 28 count natural linen (SL actually state 30 count, but it was just what I had) and I used DMC threads for the majority of the sampler, but chose locally produced variegated threads for the roof and the grass, which gives it a softer look.
Now the big decision - which SL sampler shall I sew next?!

A beautiful finish, Angie!! I love how you personalized it with your initials and the year. I will definitely be adding this to my list. My Grandfather had built his home in a log cabin style so I think this would so nice to do too.

Angie, what a beautiful sampler! Congratulations on your first finish. I had never seen this sampler actually done, I will have to give it another thought.
