Poe Sampler

Remember this?

Well BOOM! It's completed!

Edgar Allen Poe Sampler by Pullen Designs from JCS Halloween Special 2013.
Stitched on 32-count natural linen from Wichelt using DMC and Madeira threads.


Now that I have a new fancy-pants magnifier-lamp I thought I'd go back to stitching this. My last update was last year and I was stitching the writing at the top which is over-one. I was having to use my neck-magnifier, which I hated, so I sort of lost the will with this a little. In the past two weeks I've managed to finish it. I flew along on the over-one stitching and from then on it was like my needle was on fire. 

The original design was yellow-toned, but I changed to blue and I'm really pleased with how it turned out ^^


  1. Stunning finish!! I love your colour change. I prefer yours to the original :) Fantastic work.

  2. Looks great. Congrats on a wonderful finish. This one is on my to-do list after I saw your start on it a few months ago.

  3. Wonderful, I really love your colour change. The blue makes it a piece for every season and not just halloween. I still haven't started mine. But when I do, mine will be blue too.

  4. Glad to hear you're enjoying your new lamp! The do make a huge difference, don't they? Especially over one. This is a brilliant finish, well done!

  5. Love it! Beautiful stitching!

  6. Fantastic finish :) what a lovely design.
    The colour change is a great idea.. Loving the blue tones :)

  7. Congrats on the finish, love the colours too. Great changes. I'm glad you gave found a way to happily stitch the over one areas too.

  8. Oh, a HUGE Congratulations!!! Such a wonderful finish, your conversion is absolutely AMAZING!!
