Stitch Sampler

I finally finished it!!  This is my stitch sampler from Rebecca Ringquist.

It took me two years but at least I finished. Well, it didn't actually take two years. I'm bad about starting things and then before I am finished I get excited about working on something else, which creates piles of unfinished projects. I'm sure I'm the only one who does that! Right!

The fabric on the border is Soiree from Moda. I bought this charm pack several years ago and when I started the sampler I picked my embroidery floss to match the fabric.
I do have a couple other projects that are several years old and I am determined to finish them.  Then I'm going to stop doing that and work on one thing at a time until I finish.
Right! Like that's going to happen!!

Check out Rebecca's Etsy store, Dropcloth, for lots of pretty samplers.
Have a great week!


  1. This is beautiful! Yes I have quite a few UFO's in my stash of things too!

  2. Wow - it was worth the wait! Great job the matching fabric too...J

  3. This is gorgeous, and what a sense of accomplishment! — of course I don't know what you are talking about, I finish everything I start! (Is the sarcasm coming through?).

    How are you going to display this beautiful piece?

  4. WOW Dear Susan this is so wonderful, love the fabric you used for the border it fits so perfect in the colors to your embroidery.
    Hugs Anni

  5. I really like this stitch sampler and the fabric you used to surround it. I learned some of these stitches when I was a teenager, so this is very appealing to me!
