A Finish of Flowers!

Yes, I am doing a happy dance!!!  I have finished the SM1678 sampler from European Reproductions.

SM1678
dmc w/32ct antique white Belfast
This sampler was such a joy to stitch!!


I especially loved the rose and the detail in the leaves.  


And also what I believe is a pear and apple tree?  All beautiful colors!  


It feels good to have a finish amid all the large BAPs I am working on because sometimes I felt like I was stitching for months and not getting anywhere.  Nice to have one at the finish line!  

I highly recommend that you check out Sabine's website if you love reproduction samplers, she has so many beautiful patterns at European Reproduction Samplers.  There are definitely a few more on my list to do!  

Thanks so much for all the great comments about my last post of Lover's Leap State Park.  It is wonderful that the weather is perfect for heading outdoors finally!

Enjoy your weekend!  Wishing you all miles of smiles and happy stitches!  xxxxx
