SDW Framed




SDW is back from the framers. I am going to show the bands again as I always think they look so much nicer when stretched and framed.








and here is my new start - Grazing Sheep and I am loving her, even the over one.

Your finish is so wonderful Nicola!! It seems like you did that one in record time even though you were stitching it with other. And now I'm just loving Grazing Sheep. It's outstanding. Those strawberries look almost real!!

Wow you have got alot done on Grazing Sheep, I must sound like a broken record, but do you ever smell smoke while your stitching? I would think that your needle would get to hot to hold. I'm ready to have some strawberry short cake the berries look so real. Keep up the great work, I will just dream that I can accomplish so much.

SDW is just beautiful Nicola and I just love Grazing Sheep.

Wow, Nicola, your SDW is spectacular! Do you have a special place already in mind to hang her? The grazing sheep is so pretty, too. I have never noticed that one in the SL catalog.

Congratulations, again, Nicola ... your SDW is spectacular ... another beautiful masterpiece!
I'm loving that Grazing Sheep is your next project. Every time I take a visit to the SL website, GS is one that always gets me to take a second look. Definitely on my "One Day" list!
Enjoy!

Glorious! Do you have to rotate your samplers, like a gallery show, or do they each have a permanant hanging space?

SDW is amazing,Nicola. I so love this sampler and am so anxious to start mine. Grazing Sheep is another beauty. Another one for the list.....seeing those strawberries makes me want to head on over to our local strawberry stand......I think strawberry shortcake sounds good for desert.....winks.

SDW looks wonderful all framed up. A great accomplishment. Your new start is pretty too. After spendinding days weeding, I am not so fond of wild strawberries. These do look tasty, however.

SDW looks great! And I have Sheep on my to do list, but have gotten side tracked with Manifesto and Ruth Bacheler, maybe I will get Sheep going along side the others!! Stitchers are funny people! Congratulations on a beautiful sampler.
