The sampler I started for my mother is all finished. As you can see, I decided to keep on with the 14 count Aida and not go back to the linen. The finished piece is about 6×8. The other was only 3 inches wide. (>Here’s a size comparison.) I used just two strands here to be sure the snowflake in the center was nice and light and lacy. In the end, I’m glad I decided to go this route, it was easier to finish and all the details are easier to appreciate.
This was my last Christmas gift to stitch up. Now to work on a swap piece and holiday baking!
