A sampler for Sunday

Well the 3 day weekend I had hoped for on Thursday didn't really materialize. My oldest son got caught up in a crisis at the office and had to work on Friday. My younger son caught a nasty cold and was miserable all weekend. So I stayed home and got a lot of sewing, stitching and knitting done instead. All in all, not a bad way to spend a weekend.

This Sunday I have another Ewe & Eye & Friends sampler which has the unassuming title of Small Sampler 7. There were 12 samplers in the series and I've done about 3 of them. This one finished about 4 1/2 inches high and 3 3/4 inches wide.

Boy there was a lot of over one stitching on this one. It is obvious to me that my eye sight was waaaaay better back in 1998. Glad I stitched it when I could still see it. I knew that some day it wouldn't be so easy.

I do love the saying "Be Not Long Away From Home" because I truly believe there is no place like home.

Hope you have a great week -happy stitching!

  1. Amazing detail in such a small sampler - you can look and look and continue to see new motifs. Wonderful!

  2. Wonderful little sampler. I love all the different stitches.

  3. I love EEF. This one is lovely!

  4. Absolutely--no place like home. At times when I'm not home I want to click my heels 3 times like Dorothy (if only I could find ruby slippers). Your sampler is beautiful. I love how the grass looks quilted.

  5. Another pretty Sampler Carol. Yes, there is no place like home.

  6. I really like this one - the saying is so true!
    I hope things are more settled for your boys!


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