At Home with Jane sampler progress~~nearly finished WIP

Here is my progress on At Home With Jane Austen sampler designer The Sampler Girl.
 I've had this one in my basket for 4 years at least. Started on it, put it down, did a third, put it down. So I'm finishing this long WIP up very soon. I have one flower motif left and then the last band of purple flowers and it's done!!!!!!!
I so love Jane Austen.

And pinks are my favorite colors.
And my initial changed since I started it. That's how long it's been in my basket.
Home Sweet Home
Just wanted to share something I'm finishing up this weekend. I'm mixed on how to finish it because I can only afford a junkin' frame  .........and I can't find one.
So, I may finish it like the photo she has on the front and hang/display on the wall this way OR I have a frame that is bigger on the sides but the right length and put some pretty fabbie on the sides.
I used/am using Crescent Colors that are called for in the pattern. There is a DMC conversion but I like the overdyed effect.
I'm also using the linen called for in the pattern as well.
I believe it's 30ct.
So, I finished my Christmas shopping today, just a few items left and grocery shopping for the week. Feels good to be done.
Soon, to watch the Christmas Box movie with the Mr. cuddling by the fire.
We have some snack size ham, turkey, and 2 cheeses with crackers to nibble during the movie!
The last 2 gifts to mail will be late as they are to be mailed out Monday but I'm sure they will like them just as well!
Singing I'll be Home for Christmas,


  1. Jennifer, So pretty! I have this pattern up in my to-do pile for 3 years and need to start it! Wishing you a very Merry Christmas.

  2. How pretty! Another idea might be to make it into a pillow? Love it.

  3. ohhh well done on getting it almost finished ... nearly there ... have you thought of making it into a bell pull ?? although the frame with the fabbie on the sides sounds lovely too :)
