10 Years ago?
I love vintage looking samplers, so this one with a basket was a special treat. So many times non-basket making artists don't do a very good job of painting/drawing/charting a basket, but this one did a pretty good job of recreating the look of a ribbed egg basket. The use of hand-dyed floss helps with the impression of weaving I think. This one hangs in my bedroom right next to my bed. I will try to take some more photos of some of the other cross-stitch pictures she and one of my childhood friends have made me.
