Well, as you can see I finally framed and hung my beautiful Margaret Gibson. I had a slight problem where to hang her. So I decided to move around a few samplers from here to there and there to here and finally settled on this spot. This is one of my favourite corners in my lounge room. I usually sit on the right and sew.
A close up of Margaret. I was told by my DH that its slightly off, but it looks ok to me.
This is one of the samplers that I moved. Its now in one of the bedrooms. My husband bought this one for me when I was expecting my middle son in 1988. I finished it just before he was born. It is a Laura Ashley sampler. It is abit unusual as it is stitched on a brown Penelope Canvas with DMC wool. Then when it was framed I had to put brown paper behind the sampler to get that "old" look.
It's a beautiful day in the Mountains today. I picked maybe my last bunch of roses for the season. They are in the top photo. I love roses, violets and camellias. The camellias are starting to come out in my back garden. I have picked a small bunch to put my windowsill in the kitchen.
I hope that you all have a lovely weekend and I would like to wish you all a Happy Mothers Day.
