I decided to do another finished project of the week post. This series of posts, called “Finished Project of the Week” are about projects finished prior to me starting a blog. I hope you enjoy reading about them… it’s kind of fun for me to reminisce about them…
I have absolutely no new stitching to show, mainly because I’m working on my Fall House exchange and am not supposed to post a pic of it yet. I think I can have that finished this weekend though and get it off in the mail.
Here is Victoria Sampler Herbal Sachets:
And a close up of one of them that shows some better detail:
I just love that tri-color herringbone band. I so wish Thea would design more of these…
All six of these were separate kits intended to be little sachets. I stitched them all on a single piece of pewter evenweave and framed them together. They were SOOOO fun and quick to stitch… teeny samplers with little beaded flowers on either side of the name of the herb.
I’m really happy with the framing on this also. When I took it to the framer, I realized that I hadn’t counted correctly between each sampler and it was kind of tricky to compensate for that with the window type mat, but I’m happy with it. The mat color is perfect and goes with both the fabric and the color scheme of the different samplers.
Less than two weeks until Celebration of Needlwork in Louisville!
This is absolutely beautiful – you did a great job, and I love how you have chosen to frame it!
It’s beautiful, Holly – great job!
Do you have your shopping list ready for the mall at Celebration? 🙂
What a great idea to stitch them all on one piece of fabric – they look lovely 🙂 I was just rummaging through my kitted up projects yesterday and hovered over my Lavender kit … could be just the thing to give me a quick finish 🙂
What a gorgeous piece!! Thanks for sharing it!
They’re so pretty! I like them all framed together like that.
A beautiful piece of work, wonderful framing too.
That is a gorgeous finish! I’d definitely submit a copy of that photo to Thea at the Victoria Sampler – it’s a really nice way of displaying the finished piece and should definitely be featured on their website.
That is stunning – love the framing job too.
Very, very very nice !
