I started the above sampler last week. It's a quick and easy project for a change. I tend to go for quite complicated designs with lots of colour changes and backstitching.
This is an adaptation of a Prairie Schooler Sampler called 'The Brementown Musicians'. I'm making it for my nearly 23 year old son who spent his gap year (2002) on a Rotary Exchange in Bremen, Germany. David knows that I have it in my stash pile but he doesn't know that I've started stitching. I'm hoping to get it done and framed for his birthday on 16th December.
The sampler is stitched on 14 count Fiddler's Cloth using 2 strands of floss. There are only 6 colours - Dk Brown (610), Tan (612), Rust (632), Lt Brown (740), Gray (645), Green (924) & Gold (3045).
