About ten years ago I was looking through an American decorating magazine and saw a photo of someone's home with an entire wall covered with antique cross stitch samplers. I was instantly in love with this look and decided to try to replicate it. The photo above shows my efforts so far.
As I wouldn't be able to find or afford antique samplers I needed to stitch my own. It has been a very slow process, as I am easily distracted by other projects, but I have decided to finish this one as I really like it.
