This is a picture of my momentarily work in progress. It is a design by Carriage House Samplings called 1823 Emma Elizabeth Blackwood Sampler.
It has been published in an American Cross Stitch Magazine "Just Cross Stitch" in the issue June 2005. I bought it while I was living in the United States and I got to tell you, I was so disappointed in this magazine. Back in 2005 I was still hooked on all those European Designs, very cute with lots of Back Stitches and I thought I could never like anything of that style. Well that was back than and I am quite amazed about myself how much my taste has changed during the last 4 years. Cause right now I love this kind of Designs. Carriage House Samplings is even one of my favorite designers. And I am really hooked on this style.
I guess, I finally grew up.
