I Bit the Bullet…

… and paid a SMALL fortune to get some stitched pieces – six in all – framed professionally.  Some of them I stitched as recently as Jan/Feb this year, but others have been in hibernation since 2006/7.  I wasn’t disappointed with the result 🙂  I’ll show them here one at a time so you can share  the pleasure.

Presenting…. Hornbook Sampler by Barrick Samplers

This year the Easter break is a particularly long one for us in Australia.  Easter Monday coincides with ANZAC Day on Monday 25 April so we have an extra public holiday on Tues 26.  I had a day off on Thursday as well to make it an even longer break.

Wishing you all a safe and happy Easter and don’t eat too much chocolate!

Happy Stitching 😉

    I just love the simplicity of that one. The frame and mat suit the piece just perfectly.
