I just put the last stitch in this morning! I had the most fun with this project. It started out as a freebie by Workbasket (the flower portion) from Stitchville USA's May 2010 newsletter.
Having a great fondness for samplers, I just had to incorporate it into a sampler design. Then it needed a border...and then the date seemed off, so a little pink stitch along the edge just seemed to tie it all together. I stitched it with Crescent Colors hand-dyed silk with the flower and Algerian Eye Stitch border 2 over 2 and the sampler and date portions 1 over 1. So elegant! The yellow threads are actually more golden in hue. I cannot wait to get this framed so that I can find the perfect spot for it!
