I Wish!!!!

 I came across this picture on Pinterest tonight.  It makes me wish that I had started stitching samplers when I was 12 years old and just kept stitching them and that my stairway looked like this!!!!!  Rats!

Joanie said...

I hear you, Laura! I found this on Pinterest too and wished the very same thing. But it's never too late so let's get our needles hot and stitch some samplers!

Margaret said...

WOW! I just wish I had a staircase with a wall to hang samplers on.....

Oh my!!!!!!! Amazing!! And that collection go door stops on the stairs!! Really cool!!! That's also a fortune in framing....lol!!

Love to Stitch said...

That is amazing!! Maybe if we put all the samplers we have stitched so far in our lives, we might come 1/4- 1/2 way??? The answer is then, start stitching faster!!! LOL. Thank you for sharing this picture :)

Wow is right! I am sitting here in awe! I would love to see them in person.

Enjoy your weekend, Laura!

I saw the same picture on Pintrest and thought something similar!! That is an amazing collection of samplers.

Wow, and I thought I had a lot of samplers going up my stairs!! However, as the daughter of a fireman, I'm bothered to distraction by the lovely objects on those stairs--a real hazard in case of fire for the occupants and the rescuers don't you know. I'm the product of monthly and surprise fire drills--see Daddy, I paid attention :)

OMG all I can say is WOW! That is what I expect the walls of my sewing room to look like someday. WOW!

Kevin said...

What a beautiful display of this Stitcher's handiwork! I love all the antiques lining the stairway as well. This is really motivation to stop starting new projects and focus on finishing the kazillion WIP's I have here. Thanks for sharing this.

Barb said...

I agree!!! Wish I had done that too. Plus I get distracted by seasonal stuff and that hurts the sampler collection!

Pam in IL said...

Lovely. My MIL's staircase is very similar and she has her wall full of stitching and family pics too.

Ali said...

Ahh beautiful, I console myself however by thinking of all the dusting they must have to do..... Not that Iam green with envy or anything lol

Karoline said...

At first glance my Husband thought it was our staircase...a
few different samplers, but some
the same. Be brave....I did not start early, but persevered, choosing only those that touched my heart, which accounts for so many waiting to be accomplished.
In relatively little time, you will have built a collection worthy of your aspirations.

Anne said...
