I stitched the I Thee Wed design as an engagement sampler for DH and me. We were engaged for 4 years, so it is definitely a period of time in our life together worth celebrating with a sampler (any excuse to stitch, lol!). The text is embroidered over-one in Swedish.
I don't think that the dark red linen was my original idea - I tend to be a bit scared of bold colors... It is one of very few finished stitching projects that it actually displayed on the walls of our home. I mounted it in a cheap shadow-box from Michael's and it looks pretty great that way. I will try to add a picture of the finished piece as soon as I take a photo that does not look downrigth ugly... ;-)
