I like to think I'm making progress on this sampler...

although it probably doesn't look like that to some of you!

this is my
Witches Garden Sampler

(yes, THAT sampler)

i have been working at it now for a little over a year...
in between everything else I work on or that calls my attention away ~

I have finished the first top 5 rows ~ woohoo!!!
now I will go on to the bottom,
which I will fill with all things related to or could be found in a
Witches Garden...

as you can see,
I have alot of room to fill in ~
and I will be doing just that.

I'm going for a more 'colonial' look for this sampler...
one that may have been stitched by a little schoolgirl in Salem, Mass. ca. early 1700's...

Many thanks for the kind emails regarding my little sampler on Early Work Mercantile...
and your requests for it to be made into a pattern...
I'm thinking it might be :)

...hoping you all are safe from the heat & storms,
please keep those in Massachusetts in your thoughts ~

Blessings from the Farm...

Lovely! I have 2 larger samplers in about the same state... sometimes they seem to take forever to get done! :)

I love the look of this sampler. I can hardly wait until it is finished. I hope it is going to be a pattern. :-)

Oh, I'm loving this! Especially since you've got a little girl from Salem as your inspiration, how spooky and wonderful! I'm trying to beat the heat by painting halloween art. Great minds think alike, perhaps?
