Slow Sunday Stitching

 I have finished my Love Is Sampler. It is now folded carefully away. I have a frame for it already, but I’m waiting until after we move before I put the time in to get it into the frame. I bought short sequin pins to use for setting in onto the acid free foam core board. However, at the moment, I’m not too sure exactly where they are. In a box somewhere......

Here’s a picture of the whole thing and then close ups of the top section. I decided to place more words from the scripture passage into the box that describe what love does. and the bottom. 

After that was finished, I spent some time on my monthly Victoria Sampler piece. April is finished and I’m almost done the second instalment for May. 

And then I started a new piece. It’s called Harbour Village and it is also a design by Victoria Sampler. This one has a lot more cross stitch applied more densely than the other projects I have worked on recently so it is going to take a while. It reminds me of the town up in Muskoka where we will be living. Two more weeks..... We have most of the packing done and are currently living surrounded by boxes. The only thing left to pack up is the kitchen and personal stuff we need to live with between now and then. I am so looking forward to having this done, or at least this phase of it. We can unpack at our leisure once we are up there.

  1. Your Love Is Sampler is gorgeous! Such amazing detail and embroidery. You should be delighted with your beautiful finish. The little town in Muskoka sounds heavenly. Hope everything goes well with move. How exciting!

  2. Nice finish. I hope the move goes smoothly.

  3. LOVE your sampler! The words in the box are a perfect addition. Your openwork looks great too - was it as difficult to do as you thought that it might be?
    It sounds like you have everything ready for your move - now comes the tough part - "living" with most of your "life" packed into boxes. The finish line is in sight!


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
