A 10 year old UFO finished!


This is Summer Sampler from Butternut Road. I think I started it in 1998, yikes! Finally finished it last week. I did the version which was 18 count fabric with Watercolours threads. Turns out I didn't enjoy using either the fabric or the threads and that is why it sat unfinished for soooooo long! One change was taking out the backstitch alphabet (mine always look so messy) and inserting a verse instead.

Congrats on the finish! The colors are beautiful and oh-so soft. You give me hope on finishing those older projects!

Yeah!! Good for you. I have a couple of those and you have inspired me to keep on stitching.

Love your designs, Grenae
