I stitched this sampler for my Mother's 60th Birthday. It is 20 years old now! Back then it was popular to not add glass, but I am going to take it to the framer at our local needlework shop "Inn Stitches" to have glass added. I cant remember who the designer was on this piece.
It has been a while since my last post, hard to believe that January is almost gone. I hope all of you had a safe and Happy New Year!
What are your goals this year with stitching? My biggest goal is to stitch the sampler Lois Minshall, in memory of my Dear Beloved Mother, who passed away June 20, 2009. I have never done a big sampler before, so it seems very challenging due to the size. I have always made small samplers and small items for the stitching bag. I have wanted to do a larger sampler and this one is so beautiful and a wonderful way to honor my Mother, who I miss very deeply. Then one day I will pass it on to my son Noah, for him to enjoy in his home. He was the only Grandchild and my Mother adored him.
Of course, I have a long list of other samplers I want to do, Stacy Nash, Heartstring Primitives, The Primitive Needle, Black Bird Designs, and I want to finish a needlepunch that I have been working on for quite a while. I am guilty of starting alot of things, but never finish them. This year I want to finish some WIP's that I want to enjoy hanging on my walls! I will post them when I finish.
Today I am posting a couple of older samplers that I did, long ago, but still love. Hope you enjoy!
I wish each and every one of you a "Blessed New Year" filled with lots of love, laughter and good times with family and friends. My biggest goal this year is to be more grateful, to reach out more to others who are hurting, and to shine for him! (God!) to read the word more, and to stitch some samplers this year to hang in my house!!
I have been so inspired by all the needlework blogs this past year and for all the amazing pictures of the Samplers you all have stitched. Truely, we are Kindred Spirits. The love and passion of needlework binds us together. For that, I am grateful!
I have lived in Ohio my entire life and dream of moving to the Carolina's one day. My friendships mean everything to me and I enjoying entertaining. I have been married for 24 years to Jeff and also have a 13yr old son, Noah,and 2 poodles, Rex & C. We love to laugh, and have fun with each other. We go to church and try to keep God first, he is the only certain thing in this life, his unconditional love and the promise of eternal life! I have many interests as you can see, but time is not always on my side!!! I love samplers!!!!!
