Come congratulate me! My “McMansions” Project (pattern: Sampler Gameboard by The Drawn Thread) is DONE, DONE, DONE!
I was so excited about the possibility and thought of having a January finish last week that I could hardly carry on with my daily duties. I couldn’t sleep, I couldn’t eat, I couldn’t sit still – I was all the while thinking about finishing the sampler. Okay, you know I am being overly dramatic! I worked on it on and off whenever I had a few uninterrupted moments. And it is now FINISHED! You will noticed that I could only fit two letters for my initial, because that “W” is so very encompassing. I decided to only do my last name initial for the square within the gameboard for the very same reason:
This sampler was started in December 2008. I was just getting back in the wonderful world of cross-stitching, particularly antique and reproduction samplers. I liked the whimsical look of the sampler, and the fact that I didn’t have to stitch very far for the individual small pictures within the big picture to emerge:
I was reminded of the verse in John14:2 as I was stitching toward the finish line: “In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.”
Thank you for walking this stitching journey with me. Many of you had been there since the very beginning of this McMansion project. Some of you are relatively new to this. But in either case, please know that I appreciate you! Your encouraging words always make my day.
I wish you a lovely Monday, and a lovely week ahead!
