I could not finish the year without framing the two samplers and putting them on the wall.
For Patches Of Life Sampler, I chose, like Natalie from L'Atelier Perdu who designed the sampler, a shadow gap frame.
For Tribute To Summer Sampler, I chose a large dark grey/black frame that suited the pattern well.
They will not go side by side but this is to give you an idea in the size difference between the two projects which are both stitched on 40-count, over two for the bigger sampler, over one for the smaller.
I had the two frames custom-made yesterday but did the mounting myself for the first time with, fortunately, useful advice from a friend.
Edit : evening of Dec 31st, 2014... Guess what? I was not happy with the tension of POLS so I did it again and now I like it a lot more ;-)
Happy New Year's Eve celebrations!
