A Summer Sampler

When I was at the lake this last weekend, my friend Marsha showed me a beautiful needlepoint sampler that she was in the process of completing.

I so enjoyed seeing all the different stitches and threads in Marsha’s artwork!  It reminded me of needlework embroidery that I used to do.  🙂

After I completed this drawing – inspired by the patterns in a book that I showed you previously, here:  A Rosy Review


I decided to add watercolor to give it some spark:


And a Summer Sampler was done!  Much quicker than stitching but it would be fun to try with thread.

Cheers! 🙂
