Stitchery sampler

I love to do needlework. I always have. I have made a lot of pictures and Christmas ornaments doing cross-stitching. I found it very relaxing. Counting and see the motives grow. During those years of fine needlework I came to the conclusion I could not do French knots. No matter how hard I tried. To solve the problem when it occurred: My mom did them for me.

This could not go on forever. So I signed up for an embroidery class. The whole weekend I practice doing French knots, and I managed to do them.
Well I did not only do the knots. This is the sampler I started on to document what I learned. Now 2 years later I finally came around to complete it.
I am so proud. It is now on the wall in my sewing room.
