Laura's Sampler

I've just walked past this picture which hangs in our hall and thought I'd try a photo of it as it was Laura's birthday at the weekend ( 29 years old).
This is the little lady aged two, taken by her Dad who was playing with the camera and doing arty shots when he should have been putting her to bed!
Below are some pics of a sampler I made for her first birthday. Not a traditional cross stitch sampler, but using my favourite "canvas work applique" style.

It actually came third in a national competition sponsored by the French embroidery thread company DMC. The first prize was a car, the second a holiday in Paris and the third?...a box of threads. But hey, who needs a car when you are an embroiderer!


  1. beautiful sampler and what a gorgeous photograph - such a bonny bairn :-)
