Earth Sampler Completed!


This was such an enjoyable stitch!!!! I loved every minute of it. I would have had it done so much sooner, but I didn't work on it too much this weekend, while the kids were home. We spent all the free time looking for baby patterns for me to stitch!
This is Earth Sampler by The Primitive Needle. I used a fabric that I dyed myself. I am really happy with how it looks!!! Looks very earth-y!!! I used many different flosses---I used some of the called for colors & some of my own. I used a couple DMC, a couple WDW, a few GAST & a few Victorian Motto Sampler flosses. I loved Vonna's idea for the hand in the bottom corner, so I adapted mine that way as well. I have an idea in my head for the frame, I just need to see if I can bring it to life!!!
Thanks so much for looking & have a great day!!
