Heritage Samplers

 In the batch of goodies from the framers yesterday, I also got back this sampler stitched on vintage aida that my Mum made for me.  I love some of the classic cross stitch designs, mainly because in the current age of ‘disposables’, they have a sense of timeliness that seems to surpass any of the frivolities of modern times. 
I still have handiwork from various generations of my family which are wheeled out for special occasions, or indeed on permanent display.  The longevity of the goods is surely something to treasure, and I only hope that my new wedding sampler and other contemporary designs will have the same heritage value in years to come…
