Dunvegan Samplar - just beginning

I'm a little early in my post.  But when I finished up with Amish Life-Tending the Garden, I just couldn't wait to get back to working on a sampler!

I knew this would be my very next projects.  My hubby, who supports my hobby, purchased this chart for me several Christmases ago.  Rather then work on something I just got, I decided to try to stitch up some of my older charts first.  

This chart is by Samplar Workes.  I decided to use 32. Ct Magnolia linen and using DMC threads.

Downside of chart so far, has been no shaded area to show where pages overlap.  Upside - my own copier to piece the chart together where it should, without messing up my original chart.  

Sure that makes my sister happy as she will inherit the chart from me upon completion.  Plus it has her favorite object in it, that being some sort of house/building.

Colors are awesome and I pic does it the justice it so deserves!


  1. Beautiful work and i love the linen!

    1. Thanks so much. This picture doesn't do the fabric justice. It's sort of a yellowy cream color. Pull DMC #739. The fabric is the exact shade. In fact, I had to swap out several of the letters to DMC #930, because you couldn't see the 739 on the fabric.
