Winter has arrived and the wood burner has been lit. My back is "back" to normal and I have been busy this week catching up on Elizabeth Cox.
I have decided to change the bottom left hand corner. I stitched one of the large leaves and it did not appeal so out it came and I decided that as November the 11th, Remembrance Sunday and the 100th anniversary of WW1 is nearing it would be fitting to embroider a bank of poppies. This sampler will be dedicated to my paternal uncle John Parkman and maternal great uncle Atiglio Bassi who lost their lives fighting on opposite sides in WW2.
I will finish the stem stitched bank tonight and then on November the 11th at 11.00 am I will sit and add the poppies.
I am still trying to find the right verse to add to the top of the sampler. Suggestions would be welcome.
