Sampler Sunday

Just a quick post today--we've been working ourselves to death in the yard, planting, weeding, edging, now that it's finally warm and sunny. For a change, this week I got a bit more done on a project--Procession:
Here's a sampler I picked up last week at my Alexandria LNS, In Stitches. It's called The Plantation Sampler, by Canterbury Designs, by Donna Vermillion Giampa (and it has a 1987 copyright on it). This is a little different style for her, I think. I'm working on her Glorious Fruit design, and of course, I love the fruit pillows. I particularly like the stone work appearance of the plantation house.

This new sampler you got is fabulous! And Procession is beautiful, too. I'm so glad you're finally enjoying some warmer weather!

You've done a lot of stitching! Wow!
The Plantation Sampler is very nice...I would say that it IS a big deviation from what you usually does! :)

You are making great progress on Procession, I just love that piece. And you're right the house in the Plantation sampler is great!

Cross stitch used to be my middle name. Then I got carpal tunnel and decided my walls were full anyway. This is really a cute sampler!

I just adore that sampler! I especially love the ones with alphabets on them. I have two which my great grandmother made years and years ago - still haven't had them properly framed, but I plan to do so soon.

Yes, of course you may put my card on your blog! =) Have a wonderful afternoon!

Great work on the samplers! I love the colonial-style or colonial themed samplers too :)
