Country House Sampler done!

Just a quick post to say ----- I finished! Yay!




Sorry, I'm not good at the fancy stuff. This is the Country House Sampler by Brenda Keyes of the Sampler Company. Using PTP 40ct Legacy with an NPI silk conversion.




Whew! That took longer than necessary! :D Or at least it felt like it!

Thanks for stopping by! I love to read your comments. Have a good Friday -- and a great weekend!

That turned out great. I love your stitching. This design is such a pretty one and I am sure even prettier in person.

Hi Margaret, you are a speedy stitcher! I am amazed at how quickly you finished the project and it is just beautiful. I have this pattern in my stash (near the very top) and can't wait to stitch it.

I look forward to seeing what you start on next.

<3 the jargon! :)

"Using PTP 40ct Legacy with an NPI silk conversion"!

Do y'all just make this up on the spur of the moment? Can I play, too?

"This is a Coral IV-B, using RFM 27/J welt-frames, and a 30m-stroke hoffelganger."

Have a wonderful and great stitching weekend. Can't wait to see what you start on next!! Hugs and Happy Stitching

woolwoman said...

Lovely work Margaret - this is so much prettier than the chart on the internet shows - I don't have this one and think I should add it to my BK collection of charts. OK - what's next ? inquiring minds want to know - Enjoy! Mel

Rebecca said...

Love it! Love it! Love it!!!!

Gwendie said...

Beautiful!!! I can't imagine stitching on 40 ct!

Barbeeque4 said...

What a beautiful finish, congrats!!!!!

Jan said...

So beautiful, Margaret! What do you mean, you aren't good at fancy stuff? Look at that gorgeous sampler you created with your needle and thread! Wow, it is just so eye-catching, congrats!

Glenna said...

It's gorgeous--and in silk! Ooooo--what's next?

Littlebit said...

Oh, how beautiful!!!!!! Gosh you stitch circles around me!

Glenna said...

LOL! I think it's funny that we both had to have Sarah McPhail--how did you run into her? I dicovered her in the back of Sampler & Antique Needlework Q--in that little thumbnail. I can't wait for it to get here (and I didn't even ask about the surface embroidery), but being a package from Canada, I figure 10 days minimum....hurry, hurry, hurry!

Love to Stitch said...

You stitched this one fast! Looks fantastic. Love Legacy PTP. Congrats on another fabulous finish. What are you going to stitch next?!

Margeret! That's beautiful. You are a stitching machine. Didn't you just start this?

Solstitches said...

Wow and wow again! Your finished sampler is magnificent!
It seems like I only looked at this the other day when you were stitching the house and now it's finished! I'm wondering if you ever sleep?
Congratulations! That is a beautiful piece. I haven't been stitching samplers much lately but you could seriously enable me.

Margaret
