My goal has been to create a sampler wall. I’m a big fan of floss tubers, Saltbox Stitcher and Brenda and the Serial Starter. Both Carol and Brenda have walls covered with their samplers. The moment I saw theirs, I knew I wanted one too.
So…creating a sampler wall has been my goal. A long-term goal as I’m not the fastest stitcher. I’m working on it though and am super happy with my progress.
I hung my cross Heaven and Nature piece.
I am aware that …my sampler wall is looking a little “off” and needs to be filled in. It’s a work in progress. I could hide these all away until I had the perfect balance…but nope. I’m not doing that I’m enjoying them along the way. After all, who knows how long it’s going to take me to stitch the other pieces I need to fill it in right.
This was I also get a little nudge to see what size of pieces I need to stitch so I can finish the wall.
My “A Changed World” is going in the frame to the left after I get that stitched and framed. I’m so close so I decided to hang the frame.
On the upper right, I think I want to stitch this…
Forever and Ever from With Thy Needle and Thread. I stitched a tiny bit on it last year. I think I’m going to pull it out and see if it is the right size to fit there.
I have my Floral Motif Sampler at The Stitchery Nook and Liz will soon be working on framing it. The frame is already in so I’m hoping in six weeks or so, I’ll get a call that it’s finished. I’m so excited to get that back.
Can you see how my wall goes up and into a diagonal? I can’t decide if the stitched pieces should go up into that space or not. Opinions, please??!
I love all the vintage-looking frames. Ahh…be still my heart.
I can’t begin to tell you how many hours I have into these projects.
This is the frame for A Changed World…
I need to find something to stitch and put in that small wood frame in the photo above.
This frame got hung even though I don’t have that piece even started.
I will be stitching Kathy Barrick’s Good Intentions.
I will continue to do a little fiddling with the Sampler Wall. One of my kids asked me what I was going to do once the wall was filled. That was an easy question…Find another wall.
Worst case, I will start to fill my upstairs hallway. For now, I am not going to worry about it. I have plenty to keep me busy just to get this one finished!
