I was thrilled to recently pick up my giant framed Pride & Prejudice sampler. (it's 20" x 23") This has been a long time coming and I'm finally ready to put this project completely behind me - yippee! It's still wrapped in bubble-wrap as I haven't had time to hang it yet but I'm just thrilled it's finally done. I picked an elegant frame and I'm very happy with how it turned out. It's behind museum glass so had to play with the photo a bit but you get the idea.
ADDED NOTE: THERE IS NOT A CHART THAT CAN BE PURCHASED TO STITCH THIS PRIDE & PREJUDICE SAMPLER AS I'VE DONE IT. I PUT TOGETHER PIECES OF MANY PUBLISHED CHARTS BY DIFFERENT DESIGNERS TO MAKE THIS SAMPLER. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN THE LIST OF CHARTS I USED, SEE THE LINK AT THE TOP OF MY BLOG THAT SAYS "PRIDE & PREJUDICE SAMPLER" . I 'VE LISTED ALL THE PATTERNS I USED THERE AS REFERENCE. THANK YOU!
Here's a few other pieces that recently got done also. Jenny Bean got a matte black frame that works well and it's hanging on my sampler wall. Pardon the glare......

My Mississippi Riverboats piece is getting mailed off to my mother this week. I was supposed to be there to give it to her in person for Mother's Day but due to a lot of personal issues going on with both sides of my family right now I had to cancel my trip. Hopefully I will get to visit in June. I like that the frame has a couple different brown tones that go well with the piece. Thank you LHN for creating the perfect pattern for me to make for my mom!
