Over one overload - Heritage Sampler



This time I worked mostly on the over one lettering "Fauls" (our surname) and "Family" and "J" and "F" to sign it around the tree ornament. I also started the "golden vines border" that you see beneath the tree ornament.

I'm a bit overloaded on the over one for now - and considering the alphabets on each side and then the names, I'm glad I have lots of other projects to switch out to! I am really happy with the progress so far though - really like how it is turning out. I have to admit to not really be 100% sure about the oranges and yellows and browns with the light green in the "golden vines border". Especially on the gray fabric. We'll see though, I bet it will blend in better when I get in a row or two in the sampler/names section.

It looks absolutely wonderful, Jenny! I'm sure it got really old really quickly while doing it, though. I am not personally a fan of actually *doing* over one, but it really does look great when it's finished.
