Wedding Sampler

Hi friends! Here it is! Back from the framer! Ready to go on display at the wedding THIS SATURDAY!!

😁 I can't wait to surprise Jacob and Kristen with this!💕 We chose a solid walnut frame. This is stitched two over two with DMC and Cottage Garden Thread in Burgundy for the flowers on 30ct Baby's Breath linen. Their wedding color is burgundy. This pattern is by DMC and is called Just Married. It was charted to say "Just Married"(in French!) at the bottom. I changed it to say Two Become One instead. 💞 It has been in the 60's here for days. We even had a day where we hit 80! The predicted high for the OUTDOOR WEDDING?! 47 DEGREES 🥶

Have any of you read this book by Frank McCourt? I absolutely loved this! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND listening to the audio book. Listening to Frank's wonderful Irish brogue narrate his memoirs of his "miserable Irish Catholic childhood" had me 😂 pouring tears, crying with laughter more times than I can count during this entire book. It is also heartbreaking. Reading of the family's absolute poverty for years and years, because of his father's drinking the entire paycheck over and over for years and years, then only to abandon them all.

“See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands.” Isaiah 49:16

Have  a great week my friends! Five days until the wedding!

Stitching and praying,

Oh it looks perfect, the frame couldn't have been more beautiful, it's so simple and makes your work look perfect. This will make a keepsake for both of them that they will enjoy for years to come.

The framed wedding sampler is beautiful, Vickie.
I bought a copy of Angela's Ashes years ago but have never got round to reading it.

The wedding sampler is beautiful, Vickie. Hmmm, I think I prefer the upper 40s over the 90s. I pray for a beautiful day as they merge their lives together.

The Wedding Sampler is beautiful.
I had to Google 40F to discover that is 4C which is almost freezing! Wear your winter thermals under your frock! Hope the sun shines on you all and there is a mobile heater nearby.

Your sampler looks so lovely and beautifully framed, I'm sure they were thrilled with it! I love your changes to it.
This should be one to add to my audio list, but it's been a while since I've listened to any.
