I'm just a fool for sentimentality!!!
As I mentioned, here is more on the square cross-stitched piece. I recently purchased this one at one of my favorite flea markets. It is very cute and I just couldn't leave it there. The little crosses don't really touch each other...as they should, but I still thought it dear. Some pieces just call your name!!! As you can see on the photo, I just simply placed it on this antique chest below my cross-stitch pieces. I don't know where exactly it will wind up....but for now I'm thinking I may remove that large frame on the top row and put it there......I just never know until I make it a priority to spend a bit of time 'playing around with it.'
a fun sampler.
I used to teach quilting classes at the Ozark Folk School in Mountain View, Arkansas. My classes were five days of quilting fun with some very wonderful students from 'all over.' For one of my classes, I decided to make a quilt that resembled a cross stitch sampler. How that idea popped into my head, I just don't know, but I made this quilt for that class and we really did have FUN. It's about 28 inches or so square and as most of my 'stuff' is....hand appliqued, hand embroidered, and hand quilted.
So, there you are...my cross-stitch samplers.......and quilt 'sampler' too and many hours of my life...right here in this one post. I hope you enjoyed seeing them...as much as I enjoyed stitching them. take care out there, pat
