My first sampler

Hello beautiful stitchers!

Since last year watching youtube and reading blogs I realize that I wanted to try a new design for me, a sampler!!!

This type of embrodery remimds me all the history behind my hobby, I think it's fascinating, for example this particular design is inspired in German samplers :)

Maybe this is not the very first sampler because the Sal of Tempting tangled designs (long way home) is a sampler, but want to try something different.

I love nature, trees, flowers and searching in a lot of beautiful designs I decided to start this sampler:





Historic Forest sampler

 White Hardanger 22ct



Loving this project with every little element :)

Happy stitching
