I have done lots of organizing and cleaning around our home. It is a never ending job. But I found some time for gardening and sewing.
Today I have something special to show you, my latest sewing project.
The pictures came out a little odd... I think was the angle, but here it is.
No, I did not stitched it, I have to tell you the truth. I have done big patterns before,but nothing as big as this.
I think I would take the rest of my life to complete something this detailed because I am a very slow stitcher.
Since I wanted this sampler badly, I cheated and got a finished one on e-bay. It came from Canada and is beautifully done by a exceptionally talented cross stitcher.
It was hard work for me. I really love quilts, and admire people that can quilt especially because I cannot really do it. I wanted to make a fancy wave border and make seams to machine quilt it. I did it after several attempts. It was the first time I did a quilted border like this. It is not perfect, but I am very pleased with the results.
