The Sampler Girl freebie

Hi!
While it was and still is raining cats and dogs. I was nice and cozy in my stitching corner, stitching this and even finishing it in only a few short hours.
I couldn't get a good pic, so I tried two different things and couldn't decide which one was better, so here are two pic's of it.





"Primitive Irish Cupboard Sampler" freebie by The Sampler Girl found Here



Stitched on a scrap of 32 ct with GA and DMC. I just happened to have the lucky ladybug fabby.

Yes! That is a Hoosier cabinet, which my hubby can't stand, hehe! I know someone will spy it and ask me about it. I don't know if I ever posted it before.


Ready for some more Irish, here is row 7


Happy Stitching!

That was quick! You almost stitched it before it appeared on the Sampler Girl blog. Cute finish with that ladybug fabby.

Great progress on the larger piece too.

You turned this pretty little Irish design into a wonderful little pillow! I like the Blue Ribbon design too - can't think of the name. Everything looks great!

Very cute, and perfect timing to get done for St. Pat's day. Your Luck piece is looking great as well, you are getting so close to being done.

Your Irish stitching is beautiful. Just right for St Patricks Day.
Had to check in Wikipedia to see what a Hoosier cabinet was. Never heard of it. (I'm in Australia, that's my excuse and I' sticking to it). Looks like a really cool cabinet. Don't know why your DH doesn't like it.
I have a piece of furniture that my DH doesn't like either. Mine is a very old gate leg table. Can see him eyeing it off all time LOL. -take care - Sandra.

I really love this pc... anything Irish really. Nice finish.
I am new to the world of stitching and have been browsing various blogs to try and gain some knowledge and get some tips / ideas. I originally started with a stamped, then counted “kits”. I’m working on my 2nd chart and have noticed some big differences in floss types and quality.
My Cross Stitch Mentor has told me that I’m ready to graduate from Aida, but I really like Aida. Maybe it’s just beginner’s comfort???
If you would answer my question… What type of fabric or fabrics do you prefer and why? Brands and counts?
I would appreciate any advice, thanks!
