Seed Sampler updated photo

Here is an up to date WIP photo for you to see my progress on Lesley Grant's Seed Sampler. As you can see, I am now in the upper quadrant of the piece, stitching the hanging basket (shown with the bluey coloured semi-circular shape, which will soon look a lot more like a basket than it does at the moment).

Another update I can give you is that I decided to get my Welsh Sampler professionally framed. I have ordered a double mount (colours - turquoise and terracotta to pick up the tones in the border) and the frame will be a plain style (no embellishments). I chose the frame as I wanted it to compliment, rather than dominate, the sampler design itself. I have decided to hang it in the living room over the fireplace, so I think it will be a nice focal point for the room. The framer said he is going to have it ready for me by Friday so I should be able to add a photo onto my blog at the weekend.

The weather has definitely cooled down in England, much more comfortable than it has been recently. Hope its all going well, where you are!

Hello dear Ali! Your stitching looks great. I can't wait to see your Welsh sampler framed. Your choice sounds lovely.
The weather has cooled down in France too, which is much better for work! :)
I've missed you... (((hugs)))

Ali, I might have missed this somewhere in your post but what magazine did this design come from. Thanks again, Stephanie
