On Friday, I brought John Foster (Historic Stitches) home at last! It's been a long time because the first frame molding was damaged and had to be reordered. As badly as I wanted John home, I think he was worth the wait. I could not be happier with the results.
This sampler was such a joy to stitch, and I love all the motifs on the sampler, in particular the bee hive at the top center.
I also love the bright cheerful colors. I used 36-count light sand linen and the threads listed on the chart (with the exception of one that I had to change because it didn't show up on my linen).
As usual, my friend Carol who is a professional framer did a wonderful job with the framing. Now I just need to figure out where to hang "him".
