Spring Sampler

I just finished my first embroidery    sampler.  
It is from a Paper Bella e-zine.
I totally neglected my family all Memorial weekend to finish this.  Well, except for our trip to Vici to see Grandma and Grandpa Saturday and Monday going to my parents and my hubby's parents.  I did ignore them most of the rest of the time!


I loved using the old laces, buttons, ribbons and velvet.
I was so intimidated at first and now am ready to make more!!!
I had fun going out on the ranger at my parents house to get this picture too!
