Anchor Victorian Sampler

p1030937

I liked the idea of stitching a sampler to work on different styles all in one piece. I found this sampler in a sale a couple of years ago and decided to add it to my collection.

I liked the use of colours and how they fitted well together and found the design easy to stitch.

I think I need to work on using frames more to help with holding the design whilst stitching. I have some wooden bars that can be adjusted in size and slid together to create frames but nothing big enough to hold a design of this size.

I keep thinking it would be nice to have a floor standing frame but at present I don’t have the space for it. Maybe one day I will. It would be nice to have a room dedicated to crafting with good lighting and storage.

Until then I’ll have to carry on as I am either rolling the fabric or using some sort of framing.
