Happy Dance! "Sarah Spurr" Fin!

Hi, finally "Sarah Spurr" © Carriage House Samplings has finished!
It took more time to stitch outer frame than I thought, but it was very fun!



Here are some photos of "Sarah", it finished this afternoon and the weather wasn't good today, so I took these photos in the living room, that's why they are not good photos, though...
Especially the colour doesn't show well justice, in the real time this piece is so beautiful on this rich colour linen!













Here below is a photo of back of the linen that I stitched...
It's first time to show my stitched back, but this time I cared for back, too!
But I need more effort to stitch more beautifully as well as back, too.

Tomorrow my stitching group friends are coming here to my home with their kids to have lunch together as we mums are also this term's member of Preschool.
And tomorrow we have to play paper theater for new kids to show!
I do a narrator and bear's mum's voice. :D
Tomorrow is a rehearsal for us, though I hope we can play well!

I've already sent the photo of "Sarah" via mobile phone to my stitching mamas, though everyone is looking forward to see her in the real life, tomorrow!




By the way, my next project has been changed!
Terri @ Chocolates for Breakfast; Stitching for Lunch and I will do Private SAL for "Isabella Johnstone", but she needs to buy and wait for her fabrics to arrive, so until then I'm going to stitch other design!

Next project is "Anna Millet, 1895" © Reflets de Soie and am going to do Private SAL for this with
Carol R. @ iStitch.
I'm going to stitch from now, even only one cross before I go to bed.
Carol is stitching her another red sampler, and so she will catch me up later!
I know she is a fast stitcher, so it's lucky for me to make a premature start! :D

I choose 40ct Nina's original linen (very light pink), and DMC #815 for "Anna".
I hope this choice would be beautiful in the end...

Thank you so much for your visit and your comment!
Take care!

Sarah looks beautiful, Yuko! When you showed the back of it, at first I thought there was something wrong with your camera focus! But I see you are very neat with your finishing! Well done!

You will enjoy your SAL with Terri, not only because she's a lovely person but Isabella is just a wonderful piece to stitch. Enjoy your SAL with Carol too!

Sarah turned out so pretty, Yuko! The back is very neat, indeed! I love the Anna Millet, 1895 project you picked up to work on and the linen and floss colors are really pretty. I have my fabric ordered for Isabella and it should come this weekend. I can't wait to get started! I will send you an email to work out the details! ;-)

Congrats to Sarah's fnishe! She is absolutely gorgeous!!! And have fun with a new SAL. My blogland friend and I are also planning to get our private SAL started after Nashville Market show off... Too many temptations around!!

Carol R said...

Sarah is stunning Yuko and the back is beautiful too - you should frame it with glass on the front and back!

I love your choice of linen and thread for Anna - I am looking forward to starting this SAL with you! I hope i don't get too far behind.

That's a fantastic finish!

i love Sarah, you did a great job. and truly do not worry about the back you should see some of the most wonderful antique samplers and the backs are nothing to look at. threads carried all over the place. the front counts nothing else. you did a great job.

Roberta said...

Have a good week.

I am just now getting caught up on some of my blogs. Your Sarah piece is absolutely amazing and your back is incredible! I always want to keep my backs neat, and somehow, it never seems to work out that way!
