Today I have another sampler just back from the framers- hey, Joann's keeps printing good coupons and I keep using them, LOL! This is a Blackbird Design from their Schoolgirl Sampler series back in 2003 and it titled "Star Sampler". The Schoolgirl's series purpose was "the perfect way to begin working on overdyed linen, learning a new stitch with each chart." Since I had already done lots of stitching on linen and was acquainted with the 4-sided stitch this was a relaxing piece to stitch.
It is another small sampler, the stitching area is only 6" square. I love the swirly splotchyness of the linen. I think this simple design really shows it off. (sorry for the not so great pictures, but it is raining and the forecast is for the next 72 hours to be rain, changing to snow flurries- yuck!)
Well this upcoming week is going to be a busy one, and the older I get the less busy I really want my life to be. On the agenda - there is a funeral visitation I need to attend and I think their may be another one before the week is out (wow- that was a depressing thought- sorry). Monday has its non-stop driving events, I need to drive my brother to OSU this week for his doctor appointments which will be a long day. I need to help my youngest son get ready for this exams and on Friday we have tickets to a big comedy show- well at least the end of the week should be happy. Just thinking of all of this makes me want to take a nap - and I think I will! Isn't that what rainy Sundays are for?
Hope you have a good week-happy stitching!
