A Sampler, Sweet Bandit and Snow!

Dear Friends~
This is a Pennsylvania German reproduction Sampler, called Ann Huber 1834, by The Marking Sampler. It was a fun stitch, with motifs and alphabets and I love how it is a bit primitve with only a few colors used. I think I am going to distress it a bit before it gets framed.

Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy~

Here is our Sweet Bandit! He got his last shots this past week, and he now weighs 12lbs!! At 4 months old, he is always looking for trouble. lol I had made some tea this morning and I saw he was chewing on something? Here he had a tea bag,! Never a dull moment when he is around~

This is what I woke up to this morning, looking out my window!! I have to admit, it looked magical. We didn't get all that we were suppose to, but that was OK with me. School was closed, so my son, Noah was quite happy!!

I drove into some snow on my way home today, but thankfully it didn't stick to the roads.

Lovely finish! The snow looks beautiful but I'll take the sun we had today. Wish you could have stitched with me on the back porch today!

That a really great finish. The picture of the snow is so pretty, but I'm hoping ours makes a hasty retreat. It's beautiful for a while though.

I love Pennsylvania German samplers! I will have to look for this one and add it to my stash. My husband is PA German through and through and I enjoy stitching these samplers for him.
