Here is the second installment of the framed pieces:

The photo does not do it justice. The frame is a deep gold-y colour and really brings out those tones from the sampler.

You may remember that I'd shown you an old Cricket Collection piece stitched on aida that was in this frame. Well, I'm so glad I re-used that frame for this piece. I just love how this turned out, and this became the focal point to build my new sampler wall.
And now, here's a new Sampler wall of smaller pieces that I gathered together. Except for the small piece in the lower right hand corner, all the pieces were stitched in 2009.
New Sampler Wall 2010
Coincidentally this wall is directly opposite the other Sampler Wall that I built last year. This one is in our living room and the other is in the hallway.
Thank you for all your comments about the framed pieces and sharing my giddiness with stash-happiness with me! I'll be back soon with the last two pieces of the framing.
I hope for all of you snowed under in the U.S. that you are keeping safe and warm and able to use it as an excuse to stitch to your hearts' content! Till next time, thank you for stopping by!
