SAMPLER PROGRESS



I'M MAKING PROGRESS ON MY LUCINDA SAMPLER!


I LOVE BIRDS AND HOUSES ON MY SAMPLERS.
I'M USING AN ANTIQUE SAMPLER I SAW ONLINE
FOR INSPIRATION FOR THIS ONE.  I'VE ADDED A
FEW OF MY OWN IDEAS HERE AND THERE BUT LOVED
THE ORIGINAL SO MUCH I'M TRYING TO USE MOST OF IT.
I HAD NOT SEEN AN ANTIQUE SAMPLER WHERE THE
HOUSES ARE NOT FILLED IN AND I LIKE IT!
I HOPE TO FINISH THE STITCHING IN THE NEXT
DAY OR SO. HAVE A GREAT WEDNESDAY!

Love the browns and blues. I really like the idea of not filling in the houses :) I really do not enjoy filling in large areas when I stitch.

I really like it too. The blues and browns are a great combination together. And what a relief not to have to fill houses in. I really love the look!

Lori,
Browns and blues are so soothing. I think you sampler is lovely. I really need to relearn how to do these. I loved it as a child. Any suggestions for starting? Look forward to watching the progress.

The browns and blues are blending together perfectly....Your sampler is looking awesome!

Oh, beautiful! The colors together are fantastic. Not having to fill in a house, one of my favorite sampler motifs, will be nice!

Courtney,
I would suggest starting with a simple design and a bigger weave linen such as 28 count for a first project. Just to get your feet wet and enjoy the process. There are some wonderful little freebie designs on primitivebetty's blog. Lori
