In Spring, a lot of women are going to clean their house. Not really a habit I have, but my mother in law certainly does it. And this time, she decided not only to clean, but also to get rid of a lot of stuff she doesn’t use anymore. Including a lot of books. And look what she gave me!
Mostly books about embroidery, and since I’ve always loved samplers, she couldn’t have made me happier.
I really love the richness of a sampler like this; all the colours and flowers, and those beautiful little birds.
In one of the books there was a picture to drool over.
Isn’t this the most amazing embroidery?
It has been a long time, since I did some embroidery myself, but now I couldn’t resist anymore. So I took out my floss and fabric, and just started.
I don’t have a clue yet, what it is going to become. It was just so nice to sit on the couch doing this. I forgot how relaxing this is!
