After seeing the exhibition of colonial samplers in Boston back in December I was inspired to use one of the quotes I found there in my own work.
I created this piece for Bridget Frankowiak, also known as BeeFranck, over at Mr X Stitch because she is just so awesome! And I know she loves traditional samplers.
The background fabric is the product of one of my painted fabric experiments. I liked that is looks a bit mouldy and gives a sense of age to the piece.
