Animals on Samplers

i spent a few days in Portland Oregon and visited a wonderful woman's house that had many incredible samplers. the stitch group i belong to Northwest Sampler Guilds arranged the fun get together.
i love this little stitched part of a sampler. trees are one of my favorite things but who doesn't love animals.
i decided this time just to take pictures of different motifs. it is so hard when you are standing in a room of fantastic samplers what to photograph or what to make notes on. i have tons of notes and photos of many samplers around the world and it is overload once you get home and try to sort thru them. i have been trying to make it easier on myself and easier to share.

i love these strange big nosed deer on Maria Bullard , her own little touch and it make it whimsical. something i think we sometimes forget when we are creating our own sampler designs.

of course i have many more to share and will be posting more soon.
enjoy your stitching and i hope life is peaceful and relaxed.
create something unique and whimsical. there are no mistakes when you create.

  1. Beautiful motifs. Thank you for showing us. Do you remember the name of the first one with the sheep and tree. Really like that one.
