I've told you already, I know, about the treasure I collect every time I visit my Mum. last time it was the vintage patterns; the time before it was a blackwork sampler.
Mum had worked on it for as long as her hands would let her; but it wasn't finished and she wondered if I'd like to take it on. It's a lovely thing, striking in its monotone simplicity and its beautiful stitching. I've laundered it and looked at it, and thought about the "join" which will surely show. And then I've realised what a good thing that join will be. The work of two generations in one sampler? That's a story in itself.
|Yes, it's teal and black and white again. With more rosettes because I'm still loving them; and the 1 2 3 title worked on the paper in cross stitch|
Today's layout is brought to you with the help of Gotta Craft's May kit which is filled with Lily Bee's "This and That". I made two more pages with these beautiful papers; and you will find them on the Gotta Craft Blog right here
