Another new sampler in the works...

I have started stitching a second sampler design - another old treasured piece that I bought at an online auction - it was stitched over 100 years ago - wow, just imagine if those threads could talk. That's what I love about needlework is that it is timeless and has such history attached to it. So let me know how you like this little sneak peek at my reproduction - the original used some funky bright colors so I toned it down a bit to more earthy colors. Happy Stitching!
