The Three Things cross stitch sampler by Moira Blackburn
I have a new addition to the wall of the room that I call our 'quiet room' - my Mum has done a fantastic job and framed my completed cross stitch sampler for me! I blogged about it here when I finished it - a massive cross stitch accomplishment - along with a teaser photograph, and now I can reveal the sampler in all its fully framed glory!
It's a bit difficult to take a photograph of it when the glass is so lovely and shiny and has a tendency to reflect back the rather untidy other half of the room, but I think you can see how the red frame really complements the hints of red in the sampler. I'm so proud of it. It's a large piece, the frame measures 73 cm from top to bottom and there is plenty of detail in the cross stitch.
This is the Moira Blackburn - Three Things sampler which I purchased a few years ago. Unfortunately the online shop is now closed but the patterns should still be available via various sources, see some information here - Official Moira Blackburn website.
