FRAMED REDWORK

 
I FINALLY GOT MY REDWORK SAMPLER FRAMED!
IT'S A GOOD SIZE SAMPLER SO YOU CAN SEE WHY
IT TOOK ME SOME TIME. I ALREADY HAD A FRAME
THAT WAS JUST THE RIGHT SIZE SO IT WORKED
OUT BEAUTIFULLY. I'M VERY HAPPY WITH THE LOOK.

 
I USED DMC 355 FOR THE RED FLOSS AND
CREEK BED BROWN LINEN BUT I'M NOT SURE WHO
IT IS BY AS IT DIDN'T SAY ON THE TAG.
I LOVE THE COLOR OF THE LINEN. A NICE SOFT BROWN.
 
I USED AN ANTIQUE SAMPLER FOR THE INSPIRATION
BUT IT'S NOT AN EXACT COPY.
 
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND.
UNTIL NEXT TIME.....LORI

Beautiful work, Lori! It is quite a large sampler and the frame is just perfect for it! You do such amazing work and you're a very, very fast stitcher! I haven't been stitching...just hooking and still making scarves!
