This is definitely a "fast-track" XS entry - I started the Adam and Eve Sampler on the day that DH left for NZ 13 February (taking with him our digital camera :-). Now that he is back home again (hoooooraaaaah), I can reveal the finished piece to you, although I am afraid you did not have the normal 'big build up' with the "in progress" photos!
Yes, it looks mis-shaped at the moment, but I will stretch it on backing board as normal and then the border will be straight and even all the way round. The frame is a lovely dark wood with an discrete embellishment round the outside - I just bought it today from Hobbycraft! I will put a photo onto my blog with the frame for you to see, once I have bought the acid-free backing board on Friday.
So, I guess I am doing 2 Happy Dances at the moment, one for DH being back home again and the other dance for the finished Sampler! I hope you like it. I am now completing the Welsh Sampler and should be able to do another Happy Dance at the weekend. Its all good fun.
I hope that you are also enjoying your stitching and will soon have some Happy Dances of your own to do :-)
Hugs and happy thoughts, Alison xxxx
