FINALLY TA DA !!!!!!!!!!!

I had not wanted to show you my wedding sampler until it was finished and framed. 

Today is the day of the big reveal - well it's a big day to me anyway - It takes me forever to finish anything to the point of framing. 

Here are a few shots

 
Sorry about the glare !  I was trying to get enough light on it.

The sampler is I Thee Wed by Blackbird Designs and it stitched on 36ct R&R kona with the called for overdyed cottons.

I think the frame moulding is beautiful and the choice of mats and the way the framer used a continuous mat to "join together" the wedding photo and the sampler was really pleasing - to me anyway !

 
Here is a shot of my favorite wedding photo from the whole group.

 
A closer look at the moulding - it has an antique finish and really pulled out the colors in the sampler and the photo.
 
Hope you enjoyed seeing my big reveal, it was special to me to see it finally come together.
 
Thanks as always for visiting my blog and leaving your comments - I always enjoy hearing from you.  I see I have a few new followers - thanks for coming by and hearing my wooley-thoughts.
