I started cross stitching in August. I had never really cross stitched before. I did make two little ornaments when I was in junior high that were cross stitched, but that was it.
All of my samplers are original. They are hand drawn by me on graph paper and then stitched. I then tea stain my samplers to give them an aged look. Just looking at the few pictures I have taken, I can see that I have gotten better with each sampler. I guess that is true of anything we do. The more we do, the better we get.
Most of my samplers have been made as gifts so I only have a few for myself. I keep saying I am going to make some for me, but I haven't done it yet. Take a look at my samplers and let me know what you think.
Which is your favorite?
I also wanted to take this opportunity to wish all of you a Happy New Year. I hope that 2012 is one of the best years yet and that you find complete happiness, contentment, and peace in the new year!
