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 ^^
