Castle Sampler update

I finally took some updated pics of Castle Sampler on Tuesday evening. Unfortunately, the computer at home wasn't cooperating, and I wasn't able to upload them until last night.

The first pic is of Figure 1. I included part of the left border, which is completed now.

And here is a photo of Figure 2. The remaining three figures are in various states of completion, with Figure 3 being the closest to finished.

I worked a bit more on this project last night, although I didn't get very far with it. I ended up having to frog a few stitches on the chair of Figure 5, and I didn't make too much progress after that.

Also, while I was in a picture taking mood, I snapped a photo of my completed (and framed!) Lighthouse, by Bent Creek. I thought I'd get some shade of blue mats for that one and go with a distressed wood frame, but I liked the cheerfulness of these mats better. They don't actually go with *any* of my decor, so this hangs in the hallway at BF's house. It doesn't go with his decor either, but at least it doesn't clash with anything in the hallway.

Nice work on the castle sampler. Beautiful colors!

I swear I have the very same Bent Creek Lighthouse pattern around there somewhere. It just never got stitched up. Nice selection for the frame/mat ; )

Ooh, I love your lighthouse - that's perfectly framed. Really pretty!
