Flowers of the Field

I'm afraid my intentions of blogging more regularly this year have been scuppered by circumstances. I've been doing some temporary work on and off this year with a view to getting back into the workplace and with two busy children I'm afraid that blogging has been pushed to the end of the jobs list but as I have several things to share with you, I hope I will be popping in a bit more regularly from here on in.

The first thing I have to share is the finished Flowers of the Field sampler by Eileen Bennett of The Sampler House.  The charts were published in Sampler and Antique Needlework Quarterly Vols 32 - 34.  I used a piece of 36 count Silkweaver Linen and the called for DMC apart from the metallic, I substituted Kreinik from my stash.

This piece is just lovely! Congrats on the finish! I totally get how blogging might be pushed to the back of the queue. Good for you for putting kids first -- and good luck with getting back into the workforce too!

Congratulations on finishing this lovely piece.
It's good to see a blog post from your every now and then as I am not on IG. But of course family and job are he first priorities. I hope all the best for you.

What a beautiful finish Karoline. It's a lovely sampler. I remember loving it when I first saw it in the magazine.
