A Summer's End Finish

A sweet finish to summer.

While a month ago I was frustrated with my eyelet stitches on my Blackbird SAL her sampler, the more I did them the more I started loving them!!  Go figure! 

All while stitching this pretty sampler I had a special personalization running around in my head.  As this was titled 'her sampler' I wanted to add the initials of all the ladies in my family from me to my great-great grandmother, Krista - Carol - Gertrude - Gesine - Meta....

What a super fun SAL.  A BIG thanks to Blackbird Designs for this fab freebie!!  

Wishing you all a wonderful week!  Happy Fall and Happy Stitching!!  xxxx
