Oh Roberta,
It looks just beautiful. What a great sense of satisfaction to have it back home and so perfectly framed. I wish you many years of enjoyment.

Having seen Heidi's half done and Joni talking of hers, I really can't wait to start on mine. I definitely will do it :>)
Hugs, Angela

Wow! BP is just fabulous Roberta! I just love the distressed fabric you used. It looks so superb and vintage with the perfect frame. You must be so pleased with how it turned out and I am sure it will be taking pride of place hanging in your new home.

You did a wonderful job of leading the SAL. I'm only sad I did not keep up.

I am taking some time finally to look at some blogs. This sampler is awesome. I was watching Heidi while she worked on hers. Glad you got to have some stitching time too.
