My Love For You

I really wasn't planning on posting today......but I finished this sampler yesterday and framed it this morning. And. I. Just. Can't. Help. Myself! You'd think I was participating in NaBloPoMo, but I'm not.

My Love For You Sampler

by The Sampler Girl

fabric: 30ct white Irish Linen

fibers: DMC

I stitched this for my children and personalized it with their initials at the bottom. I thought of adding their birthdates, but then decided against it.

I found this frame at Hobby Lobby. On sale of course (50%) off. I actually bought the frame while I was still stitching this. And I didn't have the sampler with me. I think it worked out perfectly :)


And another photo because I love this so much. Oh, right, I love the kids that much too, lol ;) And the kiddos, bless them, love it too and are looking forward to seeing it on the wall when they get home from school :)

I'm working on a really fun little project...something from my new stash :) Stay tuned, I may just have to post tomorrow too, LOL! Have a great day and thanks for stopping by :)

What a brilliant idea, personalizing it like this! I may have to steal your idea. I bought this chart quite awhile ago, but couldn't decide how to proceed .... So glad there are minds more clever than mine out there! :)
