I made quite a bit of progress on my Weihenbug Contest Sampler.  I really like how this is coming together.  This portion is the very central section, complete from top to bottom.  Now I will not have to worry about the middle section where the motifs were incomplete and I had to match up all the lines correctly! 

A little close-up of the central large flower. I think this is the biggest motif in the sampler.

And just for fun...my niece's wedding was Saturday.  My sons, Mike and Sam were groomsmen.  The bridesmaids wore deep purple gowns, so the guys all wore purple vests and ties.  A bit unusual, I guess, but everyone looked nice.

Your sons are so handsome! And like night and day with the brown and blonde hair. My kids are the same way - blonde and brown. They ask me if they were adopted! LOL

Your sampler looks wonderful Michelle. I think it's the colors you used that make it look so wonderful.
