~Well done is better than well said~
Happy Monday everyone!
Hope you had a wonderful weekend.
Mine was spent freshening up
our humble abode for Spring.
More to come on what I did later on.
Today I reveal a new sampler I finished.
My love of Samplers came as a teen
when gramma B took me to the five and dime...
A five & dime was like the dollar store today.
Any hoot, gramma B bought me a cross stitch kit
of a sampler which was stamped in blue ink.
It took me most of the Summer to stitch that piece,
but it began my love of them.
This early sampler I have hanging in our living room.
It was a birthday present from Bob one year.
I know it is early because of the fabric,
but unfortunately the year was damaged...
so I do not know the year it was made.
I purchased this one at an auction
many moons ago.
I still love it even though it is only 70 years old!
This one I made for myself in the 1980's.
Since I love bunnies..
this is still a favorite of mine as well.
A new one I just finished.
I purchased the pattern from
last year... and finally finished it.
Framed in a farmhouse look frame.
Hung it up in our back room.
Later I will reveal my Spring flowers
that I added in my crock underneath.
This is why I hung it higher up...
as I like to add flowers for the seasons.
I am also finished with my Peepers rug,
and will show off later on.
Drawing out a new one for the Fourth of July.
Also working on my Soldier fellow.
After all I do like to start my
July 4th decor in May.
Yes I am weird as my family says!
Do you like to decorate for the Seasons?
I get it from my mom.
She does it too!
Just on a smaller scale than I do.
Sampler Blessings To All!
