Hornbook Sampler Redux

I must be making up for not stitching much over the last few months or I must have found my lost turbo needles 😉 Here’s the result – my second finish for 2011!  I changed the colours of the motifs to achieve a more contemporary look

Hornbook Sampler- Barrick Samplers

Design:  Hornbook Sampler, Barrick Samplers
Fabric: 32 count dirty linen
Threads: DMC


My first finish is a surprise gift which I cannot show you for a little while yet.


Happy Stitching 😉

    pattern. Thank you Olga
