Happy Dance Time

Yes, it's finally finished. My 40th birthday sampler. I put in the last stitch the night before last. I did run into trouble with the frog on the last big tree. Initially I thought I could cheat around it after some thinking, I'm probably too anal and ripped most of the big tree out. And I'm now happy.

Started on my birthday 9 May and finished on 27 September 2010. Using 40 count hand dyed linen and HDF - Dragon blood for the main colour + beguilted, bewitched, bebopped, beredded, and begrimed. There are 40 animals in the various colours.

Thanks for looking

was done last week, but I'm a bit slow in blogging. Progress had been slow this last weeks. But here it is

I've added my birthdate + initials using Beredded and Beleaved. I removed 2 small trees from the design to put the birthdates in. I've borrowed the letters + numbers from my Jan Houtman's Tulip Sampler. Not entirely happy with their colours, Beleaved or the green initials needs to be changed and I don't like the alphabets given as well. Might use the ones from Jan's sampler as well.
