Samplers, samplers, samplers


I am having such a fascination with embroidery lately.  This is the second alphabet sampler I have in progress.  How many alphabet samplers does one person need, anyway?  Well, at least these two, and probably I won’t stop there, you know how I am. 

This one actually sprang into my imagination as a result of the other one—I bought this thread to use for the more traditional one I’ve been working on:


The hand-painted orange color turned out to be a little loud for the more subdued palette I’ve been using here, so I was going to just stash it until another idea came along.  But another idea came along immediately!  


Don’t you love it when that happens?
