Australia sampler

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.

Again a very busy week, but I finished the right half of the sampler.
The right half of the kangaroo has the backstitches. At the left half I need to add some more green at the tail before I can finish the backstitching. There’s already about 6 hours of stitching in this kangaroo!
And this is how the sampler looks now, it’s growing nicely.

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. Cross stitch is time consuming, but the result is always pleasant. Great progress.

  2. Thanks Queenie. Not mych progress this week, so I'm going to write about a finished project today.


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment.
