An ending to a beautiful story...

~ Greetings and Warmest Welcome ~
to you, my friends!

I have much to share...
but I will share it at a later date because what I am sharing with you today deserves its own "sacred space" so to speak.


"ABC Sampler Series"

~ hanging in it's place of honor today! ~

Be still my heart...
I thought it was gorgeous when I completed the stitching, but seeing it all dressed in the frame...
completely different!

One last time with all the particulars on how I stitched this piece and then it will live on my walls :)

Linen: 32 ct. Vintage Examplar by Lakeside
Floss: used called for colors (Classic Colorworks and DMC) throughout
There are 2 stitches between houses in the row (side to side)
There are 4 stitches between rows (top to bottom)
There are 6 stitches from the edge of the houses to the broken line border and one stitch between the broken line border and the solid line border. The border colors were my own choosing and design: Sassy Brassy and Caterpillar

It is beautiful and a stupendous exclamation mark for my last 10 months of stitching.


Stitching is good for my soul.
May it be good for your soul too!
Until next time...
be kind, 
be a friend, 
smile, 
hug, 
and
stitch ALL the things!

Love and hugs in stitches, 
Vonna xxxx
