1795 Cochrane Sampler

I am happy to announce that I put in the final stitch today, to complete this sampler.  I shared this photo on my Facebook page, and received many compliments.  My reply was" thank you for the compliments, this was one of the most boring samplers I have ever had the privilege to work on.
With that in mind, I have already selected my next two projects I will be working on.  One will be the Ann Hill Sampler - which is from a Just Cross Stitch pamphlet reproduced by Cathy Livingston.  I will be sewing on 36 ct., Edinburgh Dirty Linen, using DMC.  Plus, American Flag Quilt Sampler by Rosewood Manor - using Zweigart Cashel 28ct. Lt. Mocha, also using DMC.
Needed to give my arm a rest for at least a day, so I spent the evening, zig-zagged the linen edges on my sewing machine, putting the Velcro strips on the linen so that I can attach them to my stretcher bars, and pulling DMC thread colors for each project.

  1. This is a lovely sampler but I can see why it would be a bit boring to stitch. It won't be boring when you get it framed and hanging on your wall!!!
