This weeks vintage pattern is chartered designs for cross stitch, for family heritage samplers. It was my intention to make a sampler of my husband and I years together to celebrate the wonderful events that have happened throughout our marriage, but other things have taken over and it never got done. Maybe after the next major event, our daughters wedding I will have more time to focus on things for myself and the family heritage sampler can begin.
The pattern was printed in 1976 and was brought in a Thrift Store on a trip to Florida some time ago.
There are graphs for Marriage: we have been married for 32 years and celebrate 33 years in November.
Birth: we have celebrated many births 3 of our own daughters and then grandchildren.
Homes: of which we have had many due to moves whilst serving in the military.
Family and Pets:
Occupations and Professions:
The perfect combination of events to make an amazing sampler that covers many years, I look forward to sitting down and planning it all out, I certainly have my purpose so that is where I will start. The graph paper is ready...
This is the view out of my dining room window this morning, a little fox wandering across the field.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend, it is bank holiday here in the UK I have visitors and a craft fair.
See you soon.
