A Sampler Finds a Home today

Few words to share today. Finished Tea with Jane Austen by The Sampler Girl and it found a home.
Here. The guest bedroom/ stitching studio.

It is placed right over the bedside table to invite guests for tea.

I really enjoyed stitching this piece. The frame is made by Will Willis, Tanya Anderson's brother and I love it.

  1. Beautiful finish Jennifer! And I love how it looks in the frame...

    I things are getting better for you. Sending prayers and hugs your way!

  2. Me gusta mucho el bordado, y también el marco!!! además, yo adoro a Jane Austen!!! Un beso grande!!!

  3. What a perfect spot to invite your overnight guests to tea!!

    Sending thoughts and prayers your way!

  4. That's beautiful! It looks great in that room--very nice set up!

  5. I'm still working through alot of stuff but I am still stitching and in fact, ordered some supplies online today for Mansfield Park sampler. I'm working on A Tulip for My Love sampler by Examplars of the Heart now.
    Keeps my mind busy without brushing things under the rug, so to speak.

  6. It looks beautiful and is lovely in the frame and spot where it is hung, very inviting...

  7. This looks too perfect in that spot! LOVE that frame, too; great call on getting it! :)

  8. It's beautiful Jennifer...lovely setting too.
    I usually jump right up out of bed and get about my business but this morning I made a cup of mint tea, grabbed my laptop and scooted back to bed to do some shopping. I ordered a couple charts this morning. ("Ah, Tis Spring" and "Live Laugh Love".)
    Hope your days are brighter!

  9. I love the finish and the room´s atmosphere.
    Take care

  10. Looks great, Jennifer! I love the setting, too.

  11. Such an inviting place for your guests. Nice to see you posting again!

    Have a great rest of the weekend.

  12. Are you taking reservations for guest stays? In such a lovely room, you will have to kick your guest out to get them to go home.;) I love the sampler and the placement you gave it. Very, very nice.

  13. Jennifer -

    The sampler looks lovely and you did a wonderful framing job. I need to contact Tanya for both pattern and frame.

    Hope you are well - I am thinking of you.

    Fondly -

  14. It has turned out wonderful and what a perfect place to hang it. Could you show a close up of the two pink pinkeeps by the lamp or link to where you may have posted about them. Thanks.

  15. What an absolutely perfect spot for the finished piece! I love how the lamp adds to the atmosphere.

  16. yet another beautiful finish! Nice frame too. I am glad that you keep stitching all these great pieces, so that you keep me inspired! You are a MUCH quicker stitcher than me, so I live vicariously thru your finishes till I make my own. I am without a computer right now, using my son's momentarily. Man, it is weird not having it!



  17. What a beautiful finish, Jennifer! What an inviting room!

    Thinking of you!

  19. Jennifer,

    You found the perfect spot for a lovely finish. It is a beautiful frame.

    I will have to check your older posts to see if you have done a frame-it-yourself "tutorial". If not, maybe you could consider doing one in the future.

    Thanks for posting.
