Day 102

Sample
A needlework sampler is a piece of embroidery made as a demonstration or test of skill in needlework.  It often includes the alphabet, figures, motifs, decorative borders and sometimes the name of the person who embroidered it and the date.  This is a Shepherd's Bush sampler I made 10 years ago.  It's still one of my favorites.

This so pretty Christi.The colors are so soft. I love counted cross stitch too. It's gotten a little harder since my eyes are getting old and have a hard time on 14ct Aida. Guess I should get higher magnification glasses.....
