Comments: When I saw this lovely sampler on Tanja's website, I could not resist. It has such a beautiful lacy effect to it and looks so very elegant. It has been done on an 18-count mono canvas with white perle cotton thread and a few ribbons here and there to really make it look like real lace. This sampler has 25 different patterns.

I could have finished it as a bell pull but decided to have it framed instead.

(Patterns 1 through 7)

(Patterns 8 through 14

(Patterns15 through 21)

(Patterns 22 through 25)

All stitched but still need to have a border added all around it
