{ Loureda Geiste 1830 sampler }

Here is the freshly-stained model for my newest design,
"Loureda Geiste 1830 Sampler"
my sweet & talented Mom stitched the model for me
onto 18ct aida cloth, using 2 strands of DMC threads...
I have yet to frame it, but is measures approx. 10" high x 5 1/2" wide.
this pattern will be released along with another one,
"Rabbit Folk"
(which my stitcher, Robin, is still stitching...pics coming soon)
so look for them SOON!
Hope you like it!
Thanks so much for all of your birthday wishes!!!
I had a great day...
Peter cleaned the house, did the laundry, made me breakfast...
(no, you can't have him, I'm keeping him!!)
Hannah baked me a Fun-Fetti Birthday cake complete with Buttercream frosting...
(oh my bulging belt!)
I enjoyed a quiet day, stitching and punching...
...just PERFECT!
Blessings from the Farm,

What a pretty little sampler that Mom stitched for you. I love that everyone in the house is up/awake but the one room is still dark - I'm sure that I am still asleep in there.
Happy Stitching!
