I finally finished my Williamsburg, Va. sampler. I have previously referred as my take along project. This project was small enough to put in a small tote and take with me, if I had some spare time. I did a little poetic license, as I added Williamsburg and Virginia at the top. Plus added the year and my initials at the bottom. This was a kit, I bought while in Williamsburg. It had the fabric, needle, and thread. It is on Aida 14, and uses DMC thread. I actually made a mistake, and the insides of the letters were supposed to be grey, and I used the gold instead. Luckily, I was able to match the gold with my existing DMC stash, or I would have been up a creek. I also decided that I was not going to have this professionally framed. I have several souvenir cross stitch patterns from various vacation sites. I ended up going to JoAnn's and found this frame, and framed it myself. Doesn't look so bad.
