This is a sampler that I did a few years ago. It is from Sampler & Antique Needlework Magazine from a few years ago.
I like the Rhode Island style samplers. I have posted the above sampler before. This one is from Treasures in Needlework and is called "The American Sampler". It is one of my favourite samplers.
I have another graph of a Rhode Island style sampler and it is called "The Wisdom Sampler". It saw it quite a few years ago as a kit and it is only recently that I have been able to get it. It is on my "to do list". There is just something about them that I really like.
Have you checked out the new Needleprint website. All I can say is that it is beautiful. The website to check it out if you haven't is www.needleprint.com.
Today in the mountains we are having extreme fire weather again. Its very windy, the humidity is dropping and the temperature is rising. All the Rural Fire Stations all over the State are on standby. On Wednesday we had one of these days and we ended up with a few fires. One was at Wentworth Falls not far away from here. It was started by 2 - 11 year boys playing with matches. They are in BIG trouble. It was in the bush but a lot of houses were in danger. I suppose thats what happens when you have children on school holidays and with not much to do.
Its amazing the fire season is only 6 days old and already we have had quite a lot of serious fires. One poor person has lost his house up at Port Stephens and a lot of sheds etc. have been lost also.
