A finale, a finish, and a find.

     Apologies for taking such a long break between posts.  Jill was finally able to get And They Sinned back to me and I must say when I opened that box I was so pleased.  Samplers are not traditionally matted and especially such a large sampler but I am glad I did it.  Here she is in all her glory.

     Occasionally I get the urge to shop when I'm in my pj's.  eBay was calling my name one night and I found this lovely sampler on eBay UK.  I don't recall the name of it but the original is hanging in a museum somewhere and this is a reproduction of it, perhaps by Permin of Copenhagen.  I requested that it be sent without the frame so I get to go shopping again.  Oh what a shame.    
     This piece is massive and judging by the tiles on the floor, looks to be three feet long.  Hopefully those aren't four inch tiles.  Lol!
     I have been getting some stitching done while waiting to get back to Village of Hawk Run Hollow with my SAL partner, Lori, who is stabbing her needle in a model.  Better than a model stabbing a needle in her.  Hee hee hee.  This is Birds of a Feather, a mystery sampler by With They Needle & Thread.  It was stitched using the silk conversion on the Shakespeare's Peddler blog.  The large flowers were supposed to be burgundy but I wanted something more fru fruey.  I'm such a girly girl. 
     Thank you for checking in and leaving any comments.  This is the last post I will make on my PC then I have to cut the cord and switch over to the Mac I just bought.  You may never hear from me again...........
