Recently our SDW SAL shared their journey to cross stitching reproduction samplers. The common theme the group shares is a start on Aida and cotton floss mostly Dimension kits from the '80s and '90s.
Subsequently each one of us have had an awakening when we have been "inspired" and thus set off stitching reproduction samplers.
For me I fell in love with the mystic surrounding them and spend many happy hours thinking of the young girls and what they were dreaming of whilst stitching the original and what their lives were like.
Every sampler tells a story that comes from the heart and none more so than an antique sampler.
Did their dreams come true ? I like happy ending so all my girls lived happily ever after in my imagination.
Certainly all of these girls live on today because of their samplers.
Would you share with the group your "inspiration" to stitch reproduction samplers and what was your first sampler (a photo would be nice).
