Counted Cross Stitch Sampler...

I love old samplers and purchased this pattern because of it's clean and simple design.  This piece was stitched on Linen.
I love adding wool to projects, so I customized the design
and added a wool panel at the bottom.
I also eliminated all of the stars except 4 and left only 2 of the many birds
that were on the original pattern.

My button jar held the vintage buttons I was
seeking for this project !  I attached the wool panel with French knots around the edges.

  3. Such a lovely sampler and the buttons are a nice addition.

  4. I love samplers and this one is special! I would love to stitch this. Can you give me the name of it?

  5. Hi Kathy...
    Thanks for stopping by for a visit and for your kind words.
    The original design is from Lori Markovic of La-D-Da.
    I made several changes to the original design, so that it would
    have a "sampler" feel and also to incorporate wool and some of
    my antique buttons.


So glad to have you here visiting...
would love to hear your thoughts !
