A Doodle Sampler

Do you remember the needlework or cross-stitch samplers?  They were created to demonstrate or test a skill of needlework.

I have a friend, Marsha who creates the most AMAZING needlework!! I always enjoy seeing what projects she is working on!  🙂

This doodle reminded me of the cross-stitching I used to do…

A Doodle Sampler

It is like a sampler of doodle patterns that are all “interwoven” together!

It isn’t quite done but I thought you might enjoy seeing it anyway.

Have you ever done any kind of needlework or cross-stitch?  I’d love to hear what you have created with thread!

Cheers! 🙂

  4. I really like cross-stitching, but find other kinds of embroidery really hard. It also takes a lot of time, which I don’t have – unfortunately. I follow some embroidery artists on Instagram and it is absolutely amazing what they can do! But for me I like knitting better, because it´s possible while watching TV. You cannot create beautiful embroidery while watching TV, because you really have to focus on what you do… Love your doodle, Jill! That would be a quite challenging embroidery – at least for me… 😉 Have a wonderful weekend!

    • Hi Ann, I used to enjoy cross-stitching too. I do like hand embroidery but it is something that requires attention. I think it’s awesome that you enjoy knitting and can do it while watching TV! 😃 I do a lot of doodling while watching TV. I don’t think I could do this doodle in hand stitching but I do enjoy others who can! 🌈👍💕

  5. Doodling with ink and paper is far more relaxing than needlework ever was for me. Your doodles are always amazing!

  6. This would be beautiful in blackwork. Patterns, whether drawn or stitched are always meditative. (K)

    • Hi Kerfe, it would be beautiful in blackwork. I haven’t done any of this kind of stitching. I will have to research it. I hope to do more stitching this fall. I always like your stitched mixed media pieces. 😃
