Years ago my mother started this Australia sampler for my father. She got a poor eyesight over the years, so now I’m going to finish it for my parents. I share a weekly update to keep me going.
Great progress this week. First I finished the Mimi spirit at the right.
Then I continued with the next item. Here I’m adding the last backstitches.
This part was easy after the Mimi spirit!
And yesterday I started stitching a building below the flowers. Lots of light colours, so I already added some backstitches.
And this is how the Australia sampler looks now. The upper right corner is finished!
