The last stitch was taken at 7:30pm on 2/20/2016, it was started 2/16/2011. I will have to wash and straighten it out but it is done and beautiful. It looks very catty wompish in the picture but that is from it being on the frame for so long. I was able to personalize it but the wording is in Dutch I think. It says "The granddaugther of Franklin Beall has made this sampler". The other phrase on the sampler says "after the rain the sun will shine".
