Be exalted, O God, above the heavens; let your glory be over all the earth. Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from Him. Psalm 57.5, 62:5

A Blue Moon Finish

I finished Sampler for my Mother on the 29th, just in time for another WIPocalypse report.  :)   I changed the intials the designer used for my Mother's name, since it was a short one and fit the space.   I also put her three initials in the top left where the designer just used two.   It is stitched on 32ct antique white Belfast linen and took approx. 325 hours.   It was my January 1st start.   

Now I am stitching a Lizzie*Kate piece, Time for God.   Very little is done on it yet, just 3 hours' worth so I will wait to take a picture.   I am using 32ct Goldspinner opalescent linen with Weeks threads.   


  1. Beth, it looks so lovely - I just love the colours. And you've really personalized it with the changes you've made.

  2. Wow - what a gorgeous finish, big congrats!

  3. That is an awesome sample and so lovely to honor your loved one. I just love the colors, I haven't seen this pattern before. Congratulations on a beautiful finish!!
