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.


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.


AND the Buttermilk Basin Blog Hop continues........
Up next is Tara from Sew Unique Creations!

Hope you'll hop over to Tara's blog to see what she's created for you.

Smiles, Nan
