My Fourteenth Frolic for 2017....


For my latest FF, I picked up another old UFO (not as old as last week's, I don't think, but still way past time it was stitched on again!)

This is called Alphabet Sampler and is from an old cross stitch magazine (I only seem to have my photocopied pages, but I think it is an old Jill Oxton mag).  

When I picked it up, I only had the outer border to do.


By the end of Friday evening, I was up to here.


So, as we had the long Easter weekend, I determined to finish it before I went back to work this morning.  Let's see how I went....

That heart in the mouth moment when you hope like mad that the border matches up!


Phew! It did!


And, here we go.... Success!  All finished!





I am just in love with it!  I love the soft, antique look of it and I can't wait to get it to the framers.

hugs, Kaye
