Northanger Abbey Finished!






Northanger Abbey---Jane Austen design
Designer: Tanya M. Anderson, The Sampler Girl
2 over 2
28 count Cream linen
Fibers: DMC and Crescent Colors
Backing fabric: from The Sampler Girl's Webshop
I absolutely loved stitching this sampler, it's variety of colors, vitality, and the verse! Onward now to getting a head start on the Emma project, which just came in the mail to acccompany this Jane Austen design by The Sampler Girl.

So many patterns.....too little time!
Hope you are having a great evening.

  3. How many hours were in that project? Also...what floss did you use? I really like it! The message is true.

  4. Thanks to all!

    For the question on floss, I used DMC and Crescent Colors.
    For the question about time, I really couldn't say as I picked it up here and there and did some other things like Valentine ones in between starting it. I think I originally started it a month ago.

  5. Congratulations on the beautiful finish! You are quicker than I am. I am saving up to purchase a couple of The Sampler Girl charts to stitch while I watch <> for the umpteenth time (my local library has almost all the versions of each). Hope Abby is feeling better after her shots (visits to the vet can take a lot out of a girl).
