Hi Nikki.
The sampler i did just to praktise. Yesterday when it was finished, i started to make the sampler on a grey linen. It is going to be a bag. It was the first time i have made something with bullion stitches. I was a little afraid of doing those because i thoaght it was difficult to do, but it really is not. Only thing you must use a thread wich is twisted. I tryed with some thread that was only lightly twisted and i didnt think it worked out as i wanted.
When i start a projekt i always make a sampler first to praktice to.
I didnt design the motif. The motif is from Inspirations Magazine wich has many of those beautifull motifs. I think i have 3 or 4 different motifs to use for bags with bullion roses. But i think i want to make some motifs by myself, because i really like those roses, they give it a 3 dimentional effect.
I work as a nurse 37 hours a week, and only have my sparetime to make my projekts. I really am looking forwards to get pensioned so that i can have a lot of more time to embroider. It is the best of relaxation i know.

  As always I am awed and inspired by your work!  A beautiful piece of work as always.  If all your bags for sale are like this, you are sure to sell them all!  :-)

  I'm curious, what were the pieces samplers for?  The men's waistcoat or was it for the beautiful yellow (sorry, forgot the exact period but I'm thinking 1700s?) ladies' gown?

  Thanks for sharing Bjarne!  You are always a source of inspiration!  Keep sharing your work - it always gives many of us something to aspire to!
