Reflecting on a sampler for Sunday

As I took pictures of this little sampler I reflected on, in what universe did I think that doing a sampler with this much over 1 thread was a good idea? Obviously my eyesight was better than it is now. ( I have an eye exam scheduled for this week to boost my bifocals.)




This sampler is by Chessie & Me and has the unassuming name of Chessie's House #4. The stitching area measures a puny 3 inches square but packs a lot in that space.



I love the little cabin with its satin stitched logs and the over sized cat. He looks a lot like the sweet cat we had back in 2002.

There wasn't nearly enough sewing time in this weekend and the week is already packed with appointments. Hopefully I can carve out some time to play - have a great week!

  2. I wouldn't be able to do it over one thread, but I love it! I'd jusd have to make it a little bigger for my ole-lady eyesight.
