Finished Sarah Braizear yesterday

Happy to report that I finally got motivated enough this past Friday,Saturday and Sunday afternoon to pick up and finish Sarah Braizear on Sunday evening at 6pm .
I will write in greater detail later - there are a number of areas that perhaps my comments could be helpful to others working on this or other simple cross stitch samplers.  And yes, I did not forget that I have not posted on other finishes or projects for quite a while.

Anyway,  here is a picture of my finished sampler - unrolled it and even on 40ct. Linen ( Zweigart/ color : Summer Khaki) it is a larger sampler.  The design size turns out to be about 24”x24”  and I wonder where I will find the wall space for all these finished samplers !
And,  I am sure that the people who follow this blog already know where this will be going for a long while - I will be adding it to my finished projects drawers - now 8 of them (!).  It is another area I have to address ... one of these days!

So here is my latest finish :

Wishing you all a healthy and peaceful time  - May you celebrate the last days of this year exactly the way you like !

Awesome finish! She is a beauty! Congratulations. What’s next on your list of samplers to start/finish?

Hi Lydia
Thank you for taking the time to comment here on my blog - the likes and comments on Facebook are continuing to amaze me.
In answer to your question, at the moment I am just doing what I love to do on these days around Christmas/NewYears - I am stitching some little seasonal projects - some kits, some my own ideas - the idea being is to spend one or two evenings on each project using whatever is in my stash.
I am also ‘thinking’ about things for the upcoming year but have not yet firmed up my plans.
Wishing you a great 2019...

Congrats on the finish! I agree with you - she's a deceptively large sampler. Totally gorgeous! :)

Thanks Sue; I have been thinking about getting back to blogs a bit more in 2019 - it was nice to follow each other’s stitching journeys that way.

It showed up on Ebay as a buy now chart and boy did it get bought like lickity split and it's all your fault. *many smiley faces* *many thank you's to Nupur's eye candy* (for those who have no clue what I'm talking about, read through Nupur's blog and you'll see ... )
