I had a good stitchy weekend and finished
up another Crazy Challenge piece.
Elizabeth's Garden "Nantucket Sampler"
stitched on 40ct khaki linen
This turned out to be a great little sampler
to stitch. The finished size is only 6" x 3"
but this little sampler packs alot in it. Although
I used DMC, the subtle thread changes in some
areas almost gives it an overdyed look. I did give
my finish a little coffee soak to help tone
down the ecru border just a bit.
I love this little scene with the red house and
ship. The bird and peacock are a little on the
large side but seem to make the sampler complete.
This design has been languishing in my basket
for many years and I am very happy it is stitched.

With summer fast approaching, I hope to sneak
in a few little Americana smalls. As always....
thanks for visiting and happy stitching!
