The sampler house WIP

I've started a new project, The Sampler House from With Thy Needle and Thread. I really like Brenda Gervais designs, I've seen a good few of her designs stitched and finished on other peoples blogs. They have inspired me to purchase a couple which I've kitted up and there waiting to be stitched. I've picked The Sampler House to stitch first for no particular reason and I am sticking with the recommended threads and linen. So far I am really pleased with how it's turning out I love the muted colours against the darker linen.

The picture above shows the pattern cover photo against the recommended linen it's a lot darker but I really like the colour.

I've been enjoying a cup of tea with my stitching in my favourite spotty mug, with the sun shinning and the kids at school it's been a peaceful way to spend the afternoon.

This is my progress in the last couple of days!

Love your new project you started. Your linen looks darker in the first photo and lighter in the second photo. Actually your 2nd photo matches exactly like the cover of the chart. So very pretty! I love Brenda's charts but only have 2 of them. I am a new follower to your blog. You have lovely stitched samplers. love Annette
