Just wrapped up this sampler today, been working on it for about a week.  It's one strand of DMC floss on 14 count oatmeal colored aida.  Motifs borrowed from some antique sampler patterns.  It shows myself and my roommate with the name I coined for our apartment (also the name of our wireless internet SSID).  Our tiny dog is pictured next to the house.



The poem and the signature line are typical in antique samplers.  Usually the signature line would say something like "Abigail Goodwife her work aged 9" so I find it the acme of hilarity for it to say "HIS work aged 31."
