Last week I shared the last finished element on my long and short stitch sampler. This week I stitched the borders in stem stitch with 2 threads of the dark red stranded DMC that was already in the sampler. Then I damp stretched it. This sampler will be part of another fabric book.
A last photo of the DMC floss in this sampler. These threads were in a zip lock bag since I started this sampler in August 2009. Some colours have a yellow marking thread, because they were part of another project. If I only could remember which one!
Take a closer look at all elements and the finished sampler in this Flickr album.
You can find the pattern for this sampler here.
