Darning Sampler FO (Sampler #3)

Darning Sampler FO!

Finished! I puzzled for several days about how to get some sort of delicate flower to look right in that middle block, in my colors, on such a loosely woven linen, before I went back to the historical samplers on Pinterest for inspiration.

I liked the ones with geometrical designs just as well as those with, say, a floral detail in the middle, and I thought that would suit my sampler best. So I just winged it, starting with my initials as you saw the other day, then added the year, then a a border – etc, until it looked finished.

I loved this project so much – definitely my favorite so far! – and I can see some wonderful possibilities in this type of stitching. I’m looking forward to moving on to Sampler #4 though – more on that tomorrow!
