I was blog hopping to some of my favorite blogs and I came across the 39 squares Blog where Amy is documenting her creation of a 39 square sampler. It's kind of a free form embroidery, not the classic style. She is embroidering a square a day. She finished recently and I just loved her finished product.
Keeping in mind, I have absolutely no embroidering experience, I decided to give it a try. (Ha) After a little visit to my favorite store...I sat down this evening and dove in. I'm attempting a 24 square sampler and want to do one square a day. So by the end of the month, hopefully I will have something worth framing.
Here is square number 1:
I figure if I get good enough, I know three little boys who could use framed samplers hung on their walls, although I don't think I can embroider Darth Vader or Jabba the Hut.
