A few of you have asked, so I thought I would share my progress with you... this sampler design was created because I saw an old original for sale on ebay that I LOVED, but could not afford. So I sat down at my computer and picked away at the design for a week or two until I had a new sampler that has an overall look like the old one... Naive, like it was stitched freehand without aid of teacher or book. With ships and houses and animals and... cakes!
I have just a tiny bit of stitching to do in the lower right corner, then a section of lettering to add to the bottom, and it will be ready (perhaps I'll finish while "watching" the Superbowl?)! I know it is another large sampler, and many of you prefer the small ones, but can I just say just how much FUN it has been to stitch up? All those little motifs are so different from each other, and lots of colors too.
Hopefully it will be ready for an early February release.
