As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, I’ve been thinking a bit about creating my own cross stitch designs. I don’t know if it’s something I’ll get around to anytime soon, but I’m inspired by these charming samplers that my mother-in-law Bonney made back in the ’90s, substituting their original wording with her own favorite sayings.
And this was way before Subversive Cross Stitch, of course. I like the way that they look so quaint at first glance, but take another look and you get the joke. Even with the humorous words, it’s obvious that Bonney put a lot of time into them and they are something that her family will always treasure.
