Ann Wimp, previous finishes and plans for 2014

Hello everyone!

Here is my last (4th) finish - Ann Wimp sampler. Stitched on 32ct off white linnen with DMC threads that are partially substituted with hand-dyed cotton. All sampler, except a few capital letters in verse, is worked over one thread of linen.

Since I used a lamp with a magnifying glass, stitching over one generally was not difficult. But I made a counting mistake and noticed it rather late. As a result I had to rip out and re-stitch part of the border - a golden brown line and several roses.

And some more close-ups:

The other three samplers that I have finished during this SAL are:

 Ann Hall

 Susan McPherson

 Gennet Clapp's Sampler

Thank you Nicola and Jo for this most enjoyable challenge! Thank you Marsha for charting these beautiful samplers! Thank you everyone for stitching and sharing images of your beautiful projects. Very enabling.

I am planning to continue here and my next projects for 2014 will be Continental Sampler (I was so happy to win it!) and Mary Bailey.

Thank you for watching,

I am always amazed at the finished samplers. Especially those of you who finish such lovely pieces and more than I could ever complete in a year. I will look forward to seeing how your new finish get's framed..... Thanks for the closeups.....
