I just decided on a place to put my sampler i made from Lee's design of Falling Star Primitives....Love her designs and she is sooooo sweet...I'm honored to call her my friend!!

I shared this sampler a few posts back, but hadn't framed it or anything....I bought the frame unfinished and antiqued it....But then it sat for weeks because I was uncertain of where to put it...

I also stitched mine in black, grays and pale blue so it would fit in with my color scheme....

I think I really like it here over my table in the kitchen...And I guess i will have to make one for the opposite side of the table to balance it out...

I'm having fun stitching things to sell and things for myself...Usually I sell just about everything I make and say "Oh, I will make me one another time."...But another time never seems to come..lol...And with my eyes going up to a #2 on my reading glasses i have to use to stitch by and needing more light...(My ott lamp came out recently for added light)...I decided i need to be making myself things also to have and hopefully pass down in my family someday when I'm gone....So, as I make things to sell and myself~~ I will share with you....I have sooooo many notebooks of patterns I've been collecting for years and haven't stitched, so it's time to get at it....What am I waiting for???

have a blessed and relaxing evening!!~~hugs, Jen

I think you do amazing work! I wish I understood how to do them, maybe someday I can find someone here to help teach me.
Have a great day!

Hi, Jen ~ your sampler looks perfect there. I love Lee's patterns, too. I have stitched this one but sold it, I will be making a couple more, one to keep for me. I haven't been updating my selling blog much lately, I am enjoying doing things for our home and for swaps and gifts. Happy Birthday to Taylor!
hugs,
pam

That is one wonderful sampler Jen!!! Wowsers - love everything about it - the design, the stitching and aging, the framing, and where you put it!! (And that table and the things on it are AWESOME as well!!) I know what you're saying about the eyesight - I used to be an avid cross-stitcher and now that my taste in designs have changed, I find I'm linen-challenged!! When, exactly, did THAT happen??! Yikes!! Glad you're going to be treating yourself to some of your wonderful creations! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

This is great, I too change the floss colors in certain samplers and I too hardly ever get to keep anything...I keep telling myself as I stitch that this is for ME but it always ends up getting sold!! ~Kriss~
