update Spanish Sampler

Thank you all again for all your kind comments !!

Finally I found some time to stitch on my Spanish Sampler , I still love this design !! When the stitching is done , I have to add 4 boxes of beads, so I think it will be a WIP for a long time ...

This other old Spanish Sampler , I made it in 1999 when I lived in Chile ... It was originally a design from a tablecloth , and i made a lot of changes in the design .. It is stitched on 36 count churchlinen with all kind of silk leftovers ( Au ver a soie, Caron's etc ) When the sampler was almost done , a sigaret fell on the linnen , and yep a hole in it ... about 1 inch from the last band , so it couldn't be framed anymore ... so I decided to do the edging in the nun's stitch ... and now it it just in a drawer with the others... maybe on day they all get framed ...
Hugs, Patti
