Stitching on my London sampler...

Tonight I stitched the London Underground symbol onto my cross stitch sampler. It looks fabulous above the Beefeaters. If you missed my last post on this sampler click here.  I love cross stitch designs that are made up on small pictures. They are so satisfying to embroider.


I found the most delightful vintage London tray at a market on the weekend.  I wasn't passing it up for a cheap $7!


Have you done any stitching today?

Thanks for wandering through my garden...

Thanks everyone for your sweet comments. There is still a lot left to stitch on this sampler. It has several more pictures, a red border and the word London repeated around the outside.

Love seeing this sampler come together.
Great find at the market.
I'm stitching a Christmas ornament for last year's Just Cross Stitch Ornament edition.
