Well I've spent a ton of time watching March Madness and I am enjoying it.I'm getting lots of cross stitching done. Most of my underdog picks have fallen, except for Butler. Hope they can get even further in the tourney.
Today is another sampler I did years ago - 1995 to be exact. It is by Eileen Bennett and called Antiqued Sampler. Lake Stitcher showed this chart on her blog the other day.
I liked the specialty stitches in this piece. I did needlepoint before I did cross stitch and I always enjoyed the dimensional specialty stitches.
My favorite part of this piece is the verse. "Love me, Love my Samplers". That perfectly sums up my feelings about my many samplers. Certain members of my family have commented that it looks like we don't know our ABC's in this house but those snarky comment don't deter me from stitching more samplers. And on that note I'm off to watch some more basketball and put some more stitches in my BBD piece.
