I have never taken part in a fun little contest like this, but since I just finished up another large sampler, it was timed perfectly for me to get a break from big projects, and I just might win some treasures in the process. Here is my progress from evening #1 on Blackbird Design's "Petites Lettres Rouges".
And here is a photo of the finished piece:
With the dozens of samplers that I have stitched, I have never once used my name or the actual date. I decided it was time! The needlepunched button box was made by Betty Dekat, and is a favorite treasure. Also in the photo is a hand-carved wooden quail made by my friend Janelle's father, and the tiny skeleton key belonged to my Grandmother.
I'm not sure how I will finish the sampler. I usually frame them, but maybe this time I'll make it into something else...
There is still time for you all to get in on the contest... follow the link above to the Blackbird Designs blog to get the free chart and details.
