Mystery Solved

Look at this beauty! We finally had the pleasure of seeing a finished Birds of a Feather Mystery Sampler by With Thy Needle & Thread. We cannot even begin to tell you how gorgeous she is In Real Life. (The stitcher of this sampler is too modest to be named, but lucky for us we were allowed to share these photos with you.)
Stitched using 35-count Weeks Confederate Grey linen and the called-for Weeks Dye Works floss, the two strands used over two linen threads really make the stitching POP! Typically, neither of us likes to use two threads to stitch, but upon seeing these results, we cannot imagine stitching it any other way.
"Mystery Sampler" corner detail
One other detail we would like to point out:  The clever way the date is stitched into the sampler. Can you spot it? (Hint: It will help you "unlock" the mystery!)
Can you spot the date?
Thank you Mystery Stitcher for sharing your finished Mystery Sampler with us. It is to die for!

As always, thanks for stopping by! We hope to have more goodies to share with you soon.
