Description

This is a sampler I completed in 1993 - it took me about five years to finish it! The sampler is counted cross stitch. I don't remember now where I found the pattern.

Gorgeous. I adore samplers, but don't have the patience for cross-stitch. Great work!

True

I love this...

Caribousmom

Thanks!!

They do take a long time to make - but I always just sat and stitched when I was watching television or on long car rides...which is why it took five years to complete LOL!

This is great! I love the whale with the little fishies. :) How large is this?

True

I use to stich while watching tv...maybe that is the other reason I don't do it much anymore...I seldom watch tv except when binding a quilt. I like that excuse better than my eyes not being as good!

Thanks, Robyn. The stitched part is roughly 16" X 22"

True: LOL. Well, when my vision is corrected for far away to watch tv, then I cannot see up close (anymore). And the bifocals...well, let's just say there MUST be a better solution!

Caribousmom

Whoops - I re-measured...it is closer to 16" X 19"

Wendy...I hear you...when I got my bifocals I remember thinking now I can't see far away or up close confounded I do use a daylight light when I quilt and it helps a lot...have not tried it for cross stitch maybe I should!
