Your beautiful sampler has been an inspiration to me and your frame what can I say. Thank you for sharing.

Deb said...

That's just beautiful!! I didn't realize that the piece was so large and that frame is outstanding!

ilana kaye said...

Thank you...the frame was an accidental find: the discarded side panel of a china cabinet that just fit the sampler.

Krista said...

What a gorgeous way to display SDW. Beautiful work.

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

That's an incredible sampler and a great way to frame it.
Some of these pieces are pretty big aren't they?!

ilana kaye said...

Yes...they can be monsters...and SDW was stitched on 40ct Ricamo.

Lanie said...

Your sampler is beautiful. I have only just started stitching SDW, but I love it already. Isn't it amazing what beautiful surprizes we find in the unusual? I think your frame is lovely.

It appears to be another 'tree of life' in the garden.

I am glad you are sharing pics of your gorgeous SL samplers

One thing about this SL blog I keep finding more samplers to add to my must stitch and at this rate I will need to live well past 100.....

This has so inspired me to finish. i just LOVE this frame. If this is the one made from a skip discovery, then I need to start investigating people's skips!!
