My daughter Sherrie got married 1 year ago this coming June. When she got engaged I promised to stitch her a wedding sampler. Well, she chose 1st Corinthians 13 from My Big Toe. I finally finished it earlier this week. I hadn't realized that it would take me a year and a half to stitch it. I stitched it over one on 25 count ivory lugana with the suggested Weeks Dye Works threads. I had to be extra careful not make any mistakes because ripping them out caused a shadow of the wrong stitch to show up on the fabric. So I marked up my chart like crazy and counted the border stitches several times to make sure everything lined up perfectly. I also had to chart their names and the date and then figure out how it worked in the border. I even hid a little capitol A in the center medallion. I am so pleased with how it turned out.
Completed Wedding Sampler for Sherrie & Eric
Perfectly Centered Personalization ;-)
I'm really quite proud of how this all came together. I had my doubts that I could add the personalization so that it was centered in the border but it turned out just as I planned.
