Finally Finished - Ann Smith

Here is Ann Smith in all her glory:


Ann Smith
36 ct. Magnolia and AVAS Threads

I love how colorful she is.  I think that she has become one of my favorite samplers.  Ann took me just short of four months to complete.  I know that she would have gone quicker if it wasn't for all the over one stitching, but that stitching was so worth doing.  The picture doesn't do justice to how beautiful she is.

Now I'm searching for my next SL piece.  I have one picked out, but with so many wonderful choices, I might just have to pick out two.  I've posted a few more pictures of Ann on my blog if you care to look.

Deb. Ann Smith is a job well stitched! I guess since my last name is Smith, I'd better add her to my very long list of next New Start's! She is stunning, and, you should be very proud of her. The colors are stunning and I'm sure she is even lovelier in real-life than in the picture! I'll watch for your next SL sampler? Do you know what you will stitch next? Less than 4 months, WOW!
