A Sampler for Sunday...

but no socks this week. It was a busy week -but back to this sampler. It is by Ewe & Eye & Friends and is called Summer Bungalow.

Now how do I know the name of this piece? Weeeeeellllll - I almost bought this graph again last week. Yep, I was perusing different cross stitch websites and thought "oh I like that sampler". Yeah, I like it so much I already stitched it. Sheesh - I'm not the brightest bulb on the tree. Thank goodness I went and looked at my row of samplers in my basement family room and there it was.

It really is a simple piece - not a lot of decorative stitches but I like how pretty this little piece looks in the wide frame. I stitched this up with Anchor flosses. Looking at this piece makes me want to start a nice easy simple sampler. I have a couple of graphs in my stash that are calling my name. Maybe I can pull some threads tonight and kit one up. That would be a nice finish to this crazy weekend.

I hope that you find some time to do something crafty this week.
Happy stitching-

carol fun


  1. LOL...I've bought the same pattern twice, but never for something I've already made! :0)

  2. I love your sampler--I have done some counted cross stitch in the past and have just recently done an owl--my main thing when I do do cross stitch is just what you have there--houses with the alphabet on it!! Love yours--will have to keep my eyes open for that one--thanks for sharing it!!
    Hugs, Di

  3. Lovely sampler! At least you know you still like it, lol ;)

  4. Oh this is a sweet little sampler. Sometimes it is hard to remember all the stuff we have so I can understand. :o)

  5. This is great, and the frame totally makes it! I can understand you trying to buy it again. :)

  6. It's lovely! At least you can be sure it's something you will always like, and always have :) Have a great weekend!


Thanks for stopping by. I really enjoy reading your comments. They make my day!
