Dippy - Part 8 Done

Here it is and I'm just longing to find out what is going to be in the middle. I have so enjoyed stitching this one.

I have had to have a rethink over a large project I so wanted to do. I have had my heart set on stitching the Antique Blue and Red Sampler which is a freebie and comes in 16 parts (10 parts published so far). I wish I could do what Sally does and just say "here" for you to click on a link but I can't so its here if anyone wants to look - http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=fr&u=http://users.skynet.be/bk236098/CARINNE/G-MarquoirABC.htm&sa=X&oi=translate&resnum=2&ct=result&prev=/search%3Fq%3Dmarquoir%2Babc%26hl%3Den%26pwst%3D1
Anyway when I showed it to my DH he pointed out just how large it would be when it was complete and asked where exactly I planned on putting it when it was done (and how much would it cost to have framed). The more I have thought about it the more it has put me off and so I am now thinking of stitching "Floralie by Papillon Creations which is a similar sort of thing but maybe a little more managable. Someone else is doing this on their blog and it really looks lovely, but I am going to have to wait a while - Im definitely on the stash wagon chart wise at the moment.

I didnt get any stitching done at all yesterday but I am hoping to get Auntys wfb done this weekend.

Have a lovely weekend everyone and hope the weather is not too wet for you all.

Dippy looks brill and I really love that antique sampler. I'm trying to organise a visit the the Whitby Museum to see some antique samplers in July.
