For the Love of Samplers

Just popping in with a little Show & Tell today.  This beautiful sampler was cross stitched by my daughter Heather (insert Mom bragging tone here).  Heather loves Repro Samplers, and this one was a Stitch Along that she took part in at The Stitching Post, our local needlework store (they also did the framing job for her).  It's called Birds of a Feather Mystery Sampler designed by Brenda at With Thy Needle and Thread

Heather changed the color of the alphabet, because she wanted the letters a little darker, but other than that, I think she followed the pattern.  I love the colors in this one!  Since Mom was willing to go pick it up from the framers, it's living at my house for a while until Heather's new house is built.  I seem to be housing a few of Heather's samplers, and come this summer when she moves into her new home, I'm going to have some empty spots on my walls!  I better get busy with some of the little things I'm working on...

Enjoy the day!

Dawn, I did this same sampler through our local shop and it's one of my favorites. I love looking at it everyday. Tell Heather she did a great job!
