|Victoria Sampler's "Fleece Navidad"|
Victoria Sampler's Fleece Navidad is one I stitched several years ago - it's now hanging on the wall of friends who have a flock of sheep. I love the design, and there's still enough thread left for me to stitch one for myself too :)
This Nativity sampler was the first cross-stitch piece that I worked on linen, 32 count if I recall correctly. The design was from one of the Spirit of Christmas books - I still hadn't discovered the wealth of samplers, both historical reproductions and modern interpretations, available (in those pre-internet days LOL), but I still like the sampler itself, although I might have had it framed a little differently.

When the camera is operational again, I'll take photos of more ornaments, including one that I've stitched for my Sampler Guild exchange this year - working on small pieces like these is also a great way to learn new techniques, practice different stitches, and try out finishing methods (always my greatest challenge!).
