Whitman Sampler Tin finish


This took me a lot longer than I expected!!! Amazing how something so simple can throw me off sometimes. I decided the frog liked this piece so well, because it reminded him of a lily pad!!! I finished the stitching this afternoon. I waited for my husband to help me with the padding & such. I am still not totally happy with it, but I am hoping after seeing it a bit, I will be happier.

This was my first project on linen. It was actually ok to use. I had trouble when I would come to a slub, but I was just extra careful.

Since tomorrow is April 1st, I will be working on my ornament for the month, then I will go back to Spyro!

It is beautiful. You did a great job. I can see how the frog would have mistaken it for his home. LOL It probably would be more comfy than a lily pad.

Very pretty, you're braver than I am. I have a couple of tins and am scared of stuffing them up.
