Australia sampler

My mother asked me if I could finish her Australia sampler. She was stitching this for my father, but she got a poor eyesight over the years. Of course I want to do that for the both of them!
I started working on the fish at the right. This is how far she got with it.
And now it’s almost finished. Luckily there’s no difference between our stitches.
This is the original pattern from the Dutch magazine Margriet.

You can also follow this blog at Facebook. From time to time there will be extra posts there or sneak peeks of the things I'm working on. I’ll share progress photos of this embroidery from time to time.


  1. What a wonderful gift of love!
    The sampler design is both charming and interesting.
    I am sure you will enjoy the work, and we will enjoy following your progress.

    1. Thanks, Queenie. I do enjoy stitching this and made great progress last weekend. I hope to take some photos later today so I can share an update!

  2. It is a beautiful pattern, Annet. I hope you finish it soon so that we could see it in full.

    1. Thanks, Deepa. It's a pretty pattern and I enjoy stitching it. Hope to finish it in a few months.
