As some of you know, in addition to quilting I love handwork, and lately I have been doing more than usual.
I just finished this sampler and picked it up from the framer. I am very pleased with the end result. Originally I was going to give this to my granddaughter, but decided to enjoy it myself for awhile.
Now that is done I have picked up my Mary Wigham Sampler. Mary was a student at the Ackworth School when she stitched her sampler in 1790. As you can see I have a long ways to go to completion. I am using 32 count linen over 2 threads. Sorry it appears messy, but linen wrinkles and it is too large for a scroll frame.
You can see a similar Quaker spot sampler that I stitched here.
Dawn a fellow blogger asked that I show some of my Needle Rolls that I have stitched. These were designed by Shepherds Bush I have several more to stitch in my collection of needlework to be done. I don’t know exactly how far back Needle Rolls go, but I use mine as a decorative item rather than the original intent. Be sure you stop by Dawn’s blog and see her beautiful Hexy Stars Quilt.
I haven’t completely given up my quilting. LOL I have been hand piecing this little table topper. It has been fun for a change. I used some of Cindy Blackbergs stamps. This is called Honeycomb Stars and was designed by Cindy and featured in American Patchwork and Quilting in June 2010.
This project is a good one to take along to sew on when I have a few minutes.
Until next time.
