A finish!

What do you do when you wake on Memorial Day to a power outage?  Yep, power went out at 1:48 am, and wasn't expected to come back on until 4 pm - some sort of a problem in the overhead lines.  First thing I did was roll back over and try to get some more sleep.  Once that wouldn't work I took my stitching out to the back patio and settled in.  The weather was gorgeous, and it was blissfully quiet.

I'm pleased to present a finished Jenny Bean Spring Sampler (or maybe we should call this the Margaret Leona Campbell Sampler).


For a picture of the whole thing, just look up on my blog header - I'm that proud of it!

I LOVE how you modified this sampler and got the whole alphabet on it! I'm with you - I want a complete alphabet on a sampler. Thanks for putting this as your header. I'm going to put it in my file for when I get going on this sampler. Your work is simply beautiful!

Love the finish - it's great how you've personalized it! I actually quite enjoy when the power goes out (during daylight hours) because then I can read and stitch in almost complete silence. It's amazing how much background noise all our electronics make.
