Another sampler!

I'm stitching up a storm!  I finished everything but the background on the Adam and Eve sampler yesterday, and am almost done with the detail of a sampler from Pamela Warner's excellent Miniature embroidery for the Georgian dolls' house. (I wanted to make good use of the bit of silk gauze I was using for the Adam and Eve sampler, so this one is also on 40 ct.)

 It's a very pretty piece, sprigged with potted plants, and featuring a Georgian house.  The original was signed Sarah Stuart, 1798.  I've changed some of the colours, and I'm very pleased with it!

I want to have a few pieces to take with me on a business trip I have next week, so I can just stitch background and not have to worry about counting a chart :)


  1. Oh, I LOVE the Georgian House one, Nina! I have always wanted to do one like that.... now I am getting inspired!!!
    You ARE stitching up a storm!

  2. I didn't realise that it was a different post on my blog list - you certainly have the sampler stitching bug! It's looking good - your stitches are so neat!

    Where are you going to put them?


  3. Your sampler is lovely, I love your choice of colors.

  4. Have a lot of fun at the Camp. I wonder do you learn a lot at those places ?
    Greetings Dorien

  5. Very inspiring! Makes me want to pick up sewing, again!

  6. Lovely sampler! I think I have that book too, maybe I should dig it out...

  7. Beautiful work on your sampler! Glad you're having fun at your mini retreat! Carolyn
