This is a vintage looking sampler that I stitched recently using mostly Nancy Turner's Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe threads. I have been in her Primitive Limited Edition Floss club for a while now and am thoroughly enjoying it! The chart for the sampler is from an old Just Cross Stitch publication and I had been meaning to stitch it up ever since I first saw it.
Here's a little embroidery from a vintage pattern made with a variety of threads. I do like to use many different kinds of threads for embroideries, I think it makes them more interesting to look at and more fun to do. The vintage doilies that you see surrounding these stitched pieces are ones that I found in a thrift store last summer for the incredible price of three for a dollar! There was a very large tub of them so I ended up buying about 30 or 40 of them, lucky me!
This is me and my dear little grandson, Calvin, hasn't he grown?
Thanks for visiting, I hope you will come back next time!
