Consider the Lilies by Heartstring Samplery. Stitched 2 over 2 with DMC on 32 count antique ivory belfast linen. Finished!!!! 😍 I plan on ordering a custom frame and will frame it myself. I feel happy, but a bit sad. This was the last piece my Mother saw through pictures as I was working on it. She never saw it completed before she passed away. I am glad I continued on and finished it. I know how lovely it will look hanging in our home. Thank you everyone for following along on my stitching journey! ♥️ Louise

I finished Stitching pages 8 and 9 of Consider the Lilies by Heartstring Samplery . I have decided to make a few changes. I stitched a bird motif in place of a potted plant. I found this bird motif in a Brenda Keyes Ultimate Sampler Motif Book. I am enjoying this Sampler Journey!
