A Finish


Well, here it is.  The finished black work sampler that I have been stitching for the past year.  I still have to do a little clean up work on it.  This was not the best pattern and it contained a lot of errors.  So I have to go through and fix some spots so it is even.  I think I will put it away for a while though and look at it with fresh eyes at another time.

I owe a huge debt of gratitude to Ruth in Jacksonville, FL for her help on this.  Several months ago I asked if anyone knew where I could obtain some twenty year old DMC 815 so I could finish with the same dye lot.  Ruth sent me her own stash of three skeins which were a perfect match.  Ruth, I could not have done this without you.  You are an absolute angel.  

Again, I thank you for your continued prayers, good thoughts and sweet messages.  They mean more to me than you could know.
