Happy dance time!

I'm done with the Plantation Sampler! Yay!



No more green fill in! Yay!



I stitched this on 40ct Reindeer linen from Lakeside Linens (limited edition fabric) with a mix of NPI and DMC fibers.


Oh, and I recently heard that this chart just went OOP.

I've managed to post this blog post before I have to wake the boy child up for his math final. lol! The luxury of 11:30am exams!

Have a great weekend, everyone! Thanks for stopping by!

Margaret! When I saw your blog had updated I thought "If she's finished that Plantation Sampler, I'm going to faint." Well, I didn't faint but I did fall off my chair! It's going to be hard to work the rest of the day with this big knot I have on my head. I think I might have a concussion, too.
Gorgeous work, as always. I don't know how you do it but I love seeing your beautiful stitcheries -you NEVER disappoint!

Glenna said...

Yay You! It's wonderful! And the reason it went OOP is that so many of us rushed out to buy it with you and Tanya stitching it, I'll bet.

Ellen Chester said...

I truly think your Plantation Sampler is the most stunning sampler I've ever seen! I just discovered your site and was I ever disappointed to learn that this chart is no longer in print. Would you be willing to sell me your used chart?
Thanks,
