Sinple Sampler

Project Description

What are you most proud of? The original one of these was given as a wedding present but I liked it so much I had to make another one! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Read the instructions - the repeat isnt perhaps as easy as it looks!

What you will need

  • Aida Cotton thread (prob Anchor).

Q&A with nordie

dottyeb asked:
Oh how I love samplers!! Wouldn't it be wonderful if every young girl of today was required to make a needlework sampler before she came of age?? It is such a shame that most young women of today have not a clue when it comes to lovely handwork and needlework. Your needlework is lovely!!
nordie answered:
thanks! I did sewing at school (I had to make a skirt at 11) and hated doing it. I dont know whether it was the way it was taught or I just wasnt in the mood. I'm trying to ensure that my 7 year old niece at least knows that I do sewing, and has seen some of the results hanging around the house.
