Home Sweet Home sampler.......

I finished my sampler I shared with you the other day............and here it is......please pardon the bad pictures, the glass makes it so hard to take





 pictures !!!!  whenever I make samplers, I use old/vintage/antique frames.......I leave the original glass and wire for hanging, if I am lucky enough to purchase a frame with it........I stitched this on osnaburg fabric, then stained and distressed the sampler.........I used a piece of brown calico as a backing..........I was pretty pleased with how this turned out......I never plan a design, just start stitching whatever comes to mind, seems to turn out better if I don't over think it.....now I am on to another project !! thanks for visiting, Linda
