Many Years Sampler

Maybe I should call this the Many, Many Years Sampler. I finished this lovely piece over the winter holidays - I had a lot of stitching time (for me) and stitched half of this sampler in less than a month. This is the Many Years Sampler that was a freebie from Gudy several years ago. It is stitched on 32 ct. Navy Bean from Lakeside Linens with HDF premium floss in Old Maid of the Vineyard. This piece looks like something you would find in your grandmother's attic; and I just love it.

My drawer of stitched, but not finished projects is now bulging at the seams. I think I will tackle some framing myself. Or if I win the lottery, I will take some things to have them framed.

I hope everyone is having a great New Year so far!

Happy stitching! Margaret

That is a beautiful sampler. Lovely choice of floss. Navy bean is my absolute favorite fabric form LL I could use it on EVERYTHING I stitch. LOL

Take Care
