Just Finished!

I just finished this 1797 Ship Sampler from Barrick Samplers. This is a little birthday gift for my hubby as he loves sailing, ships, etc. However, when I saw this, I fell in love with it and had to stitch it.


Some of the lines on the ship look a little wonky, but when I stretch and frame it they will tighten right up.

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stitching :)

What a beautiful sampler. Your DH is lucky to receive such a treasure:) I'll have you know I've been looking for the Glory House chart. I loved it when I saw you stitched it on your last post. love Annette

Love it, Jill. It really is quite perfect. The ship is wonderful-- I just love the flag flapping, but the row houses are my favorite. They just look so absolutely perfect.

Congrats -- to you and to the lucky hubby.

I saw the finish on Facebook Samplers Group and loved it, great job! I think this is one of the forgotten about charts that is really a stunner.
