Back in the Groove

I haven't posted in a while. I have been regrouping with my stitching. I have done some research and worked on some projects and changed my approach.

After a visit to the Victoria and Albert Museum this past January, I am further inspired. There are some amazing old pieces that are still intact after many years.

I held the oldest sampler on record in its frame and it nearly brought tears to my eyes knowing I was holding a sampler that had survived 400 years. The effort to bring that sampler to fruition was amazing. The process to dye, treat, prepare all before the stitching was to begin.
