First I want to thank you all for the birthday wishes! I did have a fantastic day! We started watching North and South in the evening and finished it on Sunday. I had seen it before on TV, but it was even better than I remembered, so I would definitely recommend it :)

If I knew how to add a fanfare here, I would, because...

... I have finished Sampler Mystery II! I put the last stitch on it on Sunday evening.

The design, of course, is by Martina Weber. I used the recommended threads (Dinky Dies and Thread Gatherer) but went with the cotton option instead of silk. I've left out some back stitching and some beads here and there. I also had a crystal heart in my kit, but don't even know where it is supposed to go. I'm sure the information is there somewhere in the instructions, but I will leave it now nevertheless.
