Finally Finished!

What a way to start the week - my oldest WIP...finished! I started this back in 2005 and resurrected it in January. Last night I worked on it some and then put the finishing stitches in this morning. All I had left were the two pulled thread bands. I'm not sure why I let those two bands intimidate me so!


Mystery Sampler
Janet Kerr
Embroiderer's Guild of America
Stitched with DMC

I plan to get some hardware for this next time I'm at my LNS.

Gotta run! Thanks for stopping by!

As gorgeous as it is, I wouldn't mind some detail pics - even enlarged, it's hard to make out the details, and you have SUCH lovely stitching talents. I'd enjoy seeing them close-up!
