HAPPY DANCE!!!!!

I did it!!! I finally finished Castle Sampler! :) I actually completed it on Tuesday evening, but I've been too busy this week to take a photo or post until now.

I've also continued working on Little Blackwork this week. I really like how this is coming along. So far, my favorite bit has been the little frog. Isn't he cute?

Wow--The TW is gorgeous! That must have taken lots and lots of stitching hours to complete! I love the little blackwork, too--that is also in my stash. How are you stitching the blackwork? Are there special stitches, or just backstitches? Nice work!

OMG, Juanita!!! The Castle Sampler is an absolute stunner....it's breathtaking. No one but a stitcher can appreciate the work that has gone into this piece. And I love blackwork. This is a wonderful choice of fabric for the color thread you're using for your blackwork. Really classy! You do wonderful work!
