Framed and finished! A Princess Moment

A Princess Moment

designed by Feathers in the Nest

copyright 2011

I finally finished and framed this sampler and with much inspiration and color, I enjoyed making this a memory for a most beautiful wedding!

I stitched the sampler on 32 count Antique White linen
using a variety of DMC, Crescent Colors, Weeks Dye and Gentle Art threads.

The frame is from The Frame Shop----EBAY (love their shop and service)

I stitched and framed this piece and will have the pattern for sale when I get a printer set up.
I made several revisions on color and design from the same one listed for a freebie for a couple of days on this blog.

After I started stitching, I could see the changes that needed to be made.

I hope you had a great holiday today in memory of those who gave their life for our freedom.

I spent much of the weekend reading. Gracie, my Kindle, was loaded with books to read and I really got settled into one by Michael Baron last night and today.

I don't know yet what my stitchy fingers will pick up next but I'm thinking I need to finish a Blackbird Design piece soon.

Speaking of BBD, June 2nd is when I will draw a name for the winner of the BBD Americana sampler with threads included!  If you haven't put your name in the hat, then you can click on the side bar which will show the post directly to the giveaway.
Till later,


  1. Wow, that frame is perfect. Grats on the finish!! I love to read, but I'm old fashioned, lol. I like books with pages that turn, so I don't have a Kindle.

  2. Gorgeous finish and framing. You did a great job with designing and stitching. It looks very lovely.

  3. Thanks, girls!! Felt like birthing a baby till I got it done.....LOl

    I love real books too. I got this Kindle for my birthday last year and it's great for travel in my purse with alot of books on it without carrying around a lot of stuff. I really like too. I also wanted it for the audio portion so I could hear the books read if I wanted to stitch at the same time.

    Hope you had a great day!
