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.
