My decorating is very limited this year. I did, however, have fun with my mantle and hooking chair. The beautiful crewel bag arrived today. It was stitched by Lori Brechlin of Notforgotten Farm and is a perfect addition.
I've added greens for the season, but this beauty will be staying out after the holidays. The small stitched house has a red roof!
Above the mantle is one of my favorite antique samplers. It is stitched in wool.
My goal for 2016 is to have all my antique samplers framed and hanging. This sampler is in an early circa 1840 painted black frame, about the age of the sampler. I framed this myself and it does not have glass.
I am hoping the hunter was a lousy shot and the deer escaped to return to the woods!
The red house and the tiny bird on the red fence are two of my favorite motifs.
Now, if I could just get myself into that chair to pull some loops!
My amaryllis is showing off today. Two of the buds opened overnight.
Have a wonderful rest of the week.
Enjoy the day,
