I'm sorry if these photos are a bit dark. It is not a very nice day to day. It is quite chilly and very wet. My dog Sally has decided to spend the day laying in front of the fire. Lucky her. It is a good day to sit near it with my stitching in hand, but unfortunately I have other things to do.
As you can see the border is progressing. I have only to do one more lollipop on the side border and then to fill it and the other 2 in. Next comes the saying:-
"Jesus permit thy gracious name to stand
As the first efforts of an infants hand,
And while her fingers o'er the canvas move
Engage her tender heart to seek thy Love;
With thy dear children let her share apart
And write thy name thy self upon her heart."
This is all over one on 40ct.
Besides this saying is there are 2 different types of urns with quite large plants that are the whole length of the saying and then of course there is the continuation of of the border.
Hopefully, this will only take me another couple of weeks and then it will be "happy dance" time.
I would just like to say thank you for all your lovely comments regarding this sampler. It looks quite challenging but once you start doing it, it is just a piece of cake.
I hope the weather is kind to you, wherever you are. The weather on the East Coast of Australia is terrible at the moment. All that is good about it is that the dams are filling up quite rapidly.
