Finished and Framed!

I am delighted to announced a new finish!!


Mary's Best Handework
With Thy Needle & Thread
32 ct Lakeside Linen Light Exemplar
DMC threads

This was another design that I just couldn't put down once I started working on it again. Plus I was determined to have a finish in March . For a sampler it was a pretty quick stitch.
 


Here is L'Atelier Perdu's Patches of Life Sampler all framed!  Believe it or not, I have had this antique frame for ages.  Bought it years ago and could never find just the right thing to put in it.  I love the way this turned out! (I even managed to stage the photo :)
 
Except one small thing-despite repeated ironings the hoop marks just would not completely come out along the margins of the fabric  :(
Hopefully my new Milennium scroll frame will make it unnecessary in the future to put large projects in hoops.
 
I am having trouble with Google in general. I can't see the letters/numbers to leave comments on some blogs.  I can't bring up Reader or Picasa Web Albums.  Since my computer is old,  I normally blame it on that, but I don't really know.

I loved the cross stitch finishes.
Reader is closing down so if you don't want to lose your favourite blogs you have to choose another reading site. I chose Bloglovin and it immediately got all the blogs from Reader so no problem.
In Picasa if you have gone over the limit of posting photos you can't post any more.
