sampler

This sampler was embroidered by me more than 20 years ago. Time flies...
Creating this was very time consuming, but I still love the result.
It's 45x35 cm.
Better on black.
Thanks for putting my old barn picture on TP+PP.
Oh, this is lovely and quite large!

A lovely embroidered sampler with lots of intricate work - you have dated this 1996 . I also made a sampler with slightly less work in it but in similar colours , designs and size and dated 1995 !! It is hanging on my living room wall ! I shall try to photograph mine for you to see !

What an intricate design. I can't imagine how much patience it must have taken to complete it!

What an heirloom you have created! I made one in 1985 which I treasure.

That's beautiful. That was the era of samplers!! I did one in 1994 but less intricate than your one. I love the colours.
I wonder where my one is? Rolled up in a box somewhere I think after its wall time 😕

So very intricate. It must have been very time intensive.

Ik vind dit altijd ware kunstwerkjes. Wat mooi dat je dit zelf hebt gemaakt.

It is beautiful Bep! I have only ever completed one cross stitch, for the birth of my friend's daughter, 24 years ago. It is a lot of work, you're right, but they last an eternity! Lovely capture of your hard work.

Good work. You ladies must have been very young when you made your samplers!

Het Goese museum is er bekend om. De verzameling merklappen.
