Finish

Hi stitching buds.  How's the world treating you?  We're getting more storms tomorrow but next week will be in the 80's.  WHAT???  Could it be?
My sampler is finished, I did the last line over two, moved the border in closer both top and bottom, and a few other errors leading to this.

 
And guess what it may be?
 
Sewn onto fabric as a cover for a 3 ring binder.  Fits perfectly.  It may go into a frame too but you know how that decision process goes.  Nowhere.  So we'll see.
  I received almost a hundred spam comments through email, but I'm not getting all of yours.  I may just close comments completely unless there is a giveaway.  
I think I will be taking a little break for a week or so and unplug. I need it. But - you never know! I just feel physically exhausted and emotionally drained.  So until then, or sooner, possibly Memorial Day, or my birthday in June, definitely by Christmas, maybe even tomorrow, take care ~ be good ~ treat yourself ~ hug often.
Stay well friends.

Your sampler is very pretty. You really have clever ideas about how to use your samplers. I just end up framing everything.

Very nice finish. You are so creative and bold with your finishes....once you decide. Hahaha. We get a day of sun today, then back to the rain. It has been a miserable May. Spam is only good on a can. ;)

P.S. Hope you have a relaxing Memorial Day weekend.

Beautiful sampler...haven't even started mine. Love your floss choices...will have to go back and see what colors you picked again. Enjoy your down time...I took 2 months off..and it was the best thing I did. Sometimes you just got to walk away for a bit. Happy Memorial Day.

Lovely finish, Marly. Take a break, enjoy your home, yard, family and kitties.
I know you've been "run ragged" this year.
I'll be thinking about you and watching for more of your interesting blogs, words and creations.
Happy birthday in June !

You always think of the most creative way to use your samplers....mine end up in a basket ( a very big one ) ....someday I will pillow or frame. Enjoy your break from blogging....will miss you.
