Thank you Brenda Keyes!


Last night I finished my Plymouth Sampler by The Sampler Company designed by Brenda Keyes. This piece is my masterpiece and I'm so thrilled to have finished it. I've loved this piece from the moment I started stitching it and now that it's done I love it even more. It is such an accomplishment for me - the largest over one piece I've ever (and probably will ever!) stitch. It was done on 30 ct. evenweave with DMC and the colors are just so gorgeous and brilliant. The whole design is just incredible. Can you tell I'm on cloud nine??? I'm going to press it this morning and take it to the framers. I can't wait to get this one hanging in my house. Now it is on to a lot of small projects which will be such a relief after this BAP and the large ones still unfinished and hiding upstairs.

Your Plymouth Sampler is just beautiful! The blogs help inspire me to do more stitching and just enjoy! My husband is from Camden, Maine. I look forward to going there one day. We live near Houston and have had nothing but rain as well here this July 4. Oh well, I guess it makes for good stitching weather.

How beautiful. It is wonderful to see this piece again. I worked mine over two since I needed it larger as it is the only piece of art in my half bath. I will have mine framed as soon as I have saved enough. Framing isn't cheap, but my framer is absolutely priceless, and I love her.
