Somewhere about midnight last night, I placed the last stitch in this sampler. WHOOPEE! This sampler was actually a joy to work on, as each state square was completely different. Used different colors, and the backstitching was positioned differently in each square as well. It was well worth the effort, it turned out beautifully and I am certainly glad I made the effort undertake this one.
The finished size is 18 inches high and 23 l/4 inches wide. I haven't a clue which sampler in my stash I will undertake next, but do know that I will also be attempting to knit myself a hat and scarf until I decide.
