Nantucket Summer Sampler








Happy Sunday morning. I finished framing "Nantucket Summer Sampler".
I thought a distressed white frame would be appropriate for such a beachy theme. Here are some close-ups and the complete picture. I am glad I finished it, I was stitching slowly lately, but I made it. It should be ready for distribution within a week or two. I started on "Summer Cove". I decided that I need to start a stitching group in this area. I really don't have anyone that cross stitches that I know of and it would sure be a treat to get together with other stitchers, so if you live in the York Maine area please email me and maybe we can get a group together. I think we are going to take my grandson to the beach today for a little bit of playing in the sand, it finally stopped raining. Have a great day and hope to hear from you. Donna

  5. I really like this. Love the frame you chose too. The little sailboats look like they are just drifting along here. Makes me want to go to the beach now!

  23. Donna ~
    I love your Nantucket Summer Sampler and the Summer Cove is a very interesting one, too. The white frame is perfect for the piece.
    What I need to know is where can I get one of these? Or both?
    I love your part of the country as I had a boyfriend from upstate N. Y. It is so beautiful up there I wish I could join your stitch-in it sounds like a hoot!
    Please, if you have time come by and see my new blog it is theflyingitchesneedle.blogspot.com.
    Great designs ~ I love your trees, being a tree person.
    Take care ~
    God Bless ~

  24. What an absolute beauty this sampler is and TWO mermaids! Anything with a mermaid and I just have to have it.
    I'd give anything to be in your stitching group - alas, it is a bit far for me :)
