Inspiration and Blog Hop Day 7

It's a bright sunny day here!  I just always feel more creative when the sun is out and shining.  I've been really inspired as of late by old samplers and especially ones with blocking, as I call it.  Here are a few that I found that have inspired a new design that I'm stitching.

MARY FARNAM, POULTNEY, VERMONT, JUNE 1827

Ella Thurstin Thurston New York 1879

Mary Pollock

Dutch Sampler

Here is a tiny sneak peak at what I've stitched so far......I am thoroughly enjoying this and I've given it a "Friends" theme.
My friends are inspiring too and a treasure to me.

Smiles, Nan
