I can’t really believe, but I think I actually started this Sampler in March or April of 2011. Now, I wasn’t working on in every day, but it still took a lot of time. I tried to challenge myself my finishing a whole letter in each sitting (which usually took a few hours!) All the time and effort was well worth it and I’m really proud of it.
I love design, I get a real Art Deco feeling from it. I got the pattern for free on this site.
I’m also really pleased with how nice and clean the back turned out:
Now that this one’s done, I already have a few new ideas and some already in the works! (I’m even tempted to redo this one using a different colour palette – we’ll see if I can commit to another year!)
