LIZZY DUNN SAMPLER
TA-DAH!! Finally...done! It was stitched on 30 ct linen...I don't think I'll be doing that again any time soon! These eyes had a hard time, but I think it turned out pretty good. I switched out some of the colors...because I read the symbols incorrectly...DUH! But I was not going to "unstitch" any part of this sampler...so I made do with my mistakes. I gave it a light bath in walnut crystals and then hung it up to dry. The frame is an old one. I picked it up at a yard sale about three weeks ago for $1. It has the glass, but since I take such poor pictures anyway..I left the glass out for now. I am really itching to do some rug hooking. In 17 days it's Sauder Village time..I can't wait!!! I am determined NOT to buy wool...patterns, YES...wool NO..well...we'll see! I've been saving up my quarters and other loose change since last year..it's sitting in mason jars just waiting for Sauder. Change, you say??? Yep..at last count I had over $230 in quarters, dimes, and nickels. It ought to buy me a couple of patterns, at least! Later this week, I'll post pictures of the finds at the antique show in Allegan yesterday. It's been a long day..and I'm a bit tired. Have a good nite!
