Wedding Sampler and more !!!!

Thanks for all the lovely comments about my sister's big day !!  It went off perfectly, she looked stunning and they were both sooooo happy !!!  She loved the wedding sampler and I can finally share pictures with you ....

Wedding Celebration

28 count white evenweave
included DMC, and Mill Hill beads
Heritage Stitchcraft

I added the charm and beads to add a bit of bling !!! I chose this design because my sister had yellow for the colour of the wedding so the waistcoat colour was perfect !! I also wanted to say what great service I had from Heritage who make this kit.  Whilst sewing this I noticed that a colour was missing on the key I emailled the company and they sent me out a new pattern with the correct key within a week.  I think that was really good as I was able to just carry on and get it finished in time.

I also finished the little memento I was stitching for myself.  It turned out really well:

Just Married

designed by Lizzie Kate
recommended DMC threads
Hand-dyed 28 count Linen from The Crafty Kitten

I have also finished the first part of the Papillon Creations SAL.  I decided to add the beads as I went as I didn't want to add them all at the end.  I am now going to practise some Hardanger before starting the second part because I really want to add the cutwork to the design but I have never done it before.

Happy Stitching Everybody!!!


P.S. I am close to 100 followers (I can't believe it !!!) and you know what that means !!!  Once I reach that number I will host a giveaway !!


  1. Well there's only one thing I can say! Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! The wedding sampler is gorgeous, Around the World is gorgeous and Just Married is cute...ha ha bet you thought I was going to say is though. Congratulations on 3 very lovely finishes. (I know technically Around the World has another 23 parts, but Part 1 is finished!!)

  2. Lovely wedding stitching! Great to hear how good Heritage was about their mistake - good customer service!

  3. I love the details on your pieces...including the wizard you just finished to. Well done.

  4. Ooooh, you are close, Donna. Grats on the followers. That's awesome. And good progress so far. Grats on finishing up part one of Papillion. I love your purple color. It's beautiful. And hardanger isn't so difficult. Just remember, any thing you do wrong cal always be fixed. It may be a pain, but you weave a thread in in place of the one you accidentally cut, and you're good. Grats on the finish too. And ON TIME, whoo hoo!!! Heritage is a great company to deal with. I had a problem with one of their suppliers, and they were so helpful in resolving it.

  5. What a lovely gift Donna! Your sister must be so proud of you and so lucky to have you :-)
