Once Upon A Time - Finished!

Yay!!! First finish of 2015 and done in time to start the Story Time Sampler tomorrow!!

Here is the December block completed:

And here is the completed piece!!!

Once Upon A Time Sampler by The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery
Started: 2/1/14
Finished: 1/14/15
Stitched on 28-ct. jobelan in Sunset from Hand Dyed Fabrics By Stephanie
Floss and Silks from Mo's Sale

I'm so happy with how this turned out. It was the first time I made a nearly complete overhaul and substituted all of the flosses and silks for other colors. My daughter has already begged that this be hung in her room once it's framed, and I'm seriously considering looking into Jill Rensel for framing the piece because I think this unique piece deserves a unique frame. We'll see.

Tomorrow is the new release. I'm so excited!

Until next time!


  1. Congrats on the gorgeous finish Katy.

    I am also looking forward to Nora's new release.

  6. Fabulous! You must be so proud!

  7. Well done! It's a lovely finish and a great start to the year.

  8. Amazing piece of stitching - well done on finishing it so early into 2015. I agree it certainly needs a unique frame to finish it off.

  9. Wow! Major Major happy dance girl. It's simply gorgeous.

  10. Yay, you managed to finish it before SAL 2015 came out and it looks amazing! A Rensel frame would totally suit this.

  11. I'm impressed, I mean, I knew you'd make it but MY GOODNESS! I'm calling you stitch-machine from now on, you earned the title!

  12. Congrats on a beautiful finish! You made your goal which is amazing :)

  13. Congratulations, it's a cute finish

  14. I love this!. How do you go about substituting all the colours? I found a really big sampler I like but I don't like how dull the colours are. And I want to change them but I cant even think where to begin..
