Post for Barbara H - EK 1653 Finished

I am so happy to have finished my EK 1653.   

 

The colors are fabulous.  I must confess that I was getting a little tired of working all that satin stitch.


It was an over-all easy sampler that I could work on between QSD projects and keep me sane.   

 

When my 6 year old Grand Kate visited last, she saw EK on the frame and honest to goodness – her jaw dropped. 

She told me in a whisper, that it was the most beautiful  sampler in the world.

Good thing she likes it, I was making it for her to have one day.

 

Thank you everyone for  the delight you bring my way every day.

 

Cheers,

Barbara

I agree with Kate.

Thank you Barbara for sharing your journey with EK. I have my chart now and I hope to stitch her soon. You are an inspiration.

Beautiful. Interesting to see it top to bottom and how pale the colors are at the top and then get darker and more solid towards the bottom. Lucky granddaughter

that is really beautiful barb. You really have a lot of talent. I wish I was so good. It will make a beautiful heirloom for Kate. right now I have hard custom braces on both of my hands and I can't use my thumbs at all so I can't even try to do anything like that but I wish I could. I'll never be as good as you though

What a beautiful sampler. You did a wonderful job on her and your story for your grandaughter is every bit as beautiful. You should print your journey and put in an envelope and attach to the back of your framed work. Can you imagine the joy she will have when she reads the beautiful story of a beautiful sampler from a beautiful loving grandmother. I guess I am a sentimentalist.
I am studying my copy of this piece and can't wait to get started. So glad you shared your photos.
