I Won! Springtime Sampler @ 14 Countess

Holy crap, you guys, I won a giveaway! I never win anything. But Saturday, I opened my inbox to find an e-mail from the lovely blogger and stitcher at Fourteen Countess telling me I'd won her lovely Springtime Sampler. I'd seen it in a couple of embroidery pools on Flickr and fell in love. Anyway, isn't it sweet? I just adore the embroidery on printed fabric -- what a great idea. And the colors are beautiful. I can't wait until it arrives, and I'm already thinking about where to display it.

Here's a close-up. French knots, blanket stitch, chain stitch, satin stitch and more. So, so lovely.


If you haven't clicked over to Fourteen Countess yet, go! Her work is outstanding, and she stitches the sweetest birds.
