Another October Sampler update

Here’s where I left off stitching Friday night on

And here’s  where I left off in the wee hours of this morning.

As you can see from the chart image below, that lower space is supposed to have  Oct. 1845 in it.

twp october samplerA quick search didn’t really find anything of significance for that month and year.  The Oct makes sense since the chart is called October Sampler but the year is likely random.  I may just put my initials and the the current year or maybe just the year and extend the vines on each side.  Maybe just the word October spelled out?  Not sure what I will end up with in that space but 1845 won’t be included.  What would you put in there?

One of today’s things I want to get to is to figure out what to stitch to mount in the center of this wee pumpkin.

At some point I’d also like to get some of those other charts (the tree with the pilgrims is really cute for fall as well as the squirrel and cornucopia) finished into the acorn shapes – the finishing instructions and pattern for shape are all included in the chart as well as the large leave shapes behind them.

  1. Your initials and the year with the vine extended would look very good! The squirrel in the middle of the pumpkin would look so cute because they are always around in the fall gathering acorns, etc. as a suggestion.

  2. Love those little acorns in that chart. I think your sampler is coming along beautifully. I would put my grandmothers initials and birth year in it. She was born in October. I’ve wanted to add initials from ancestors in some pieces but haven’t worked on anything yet that would work.

  3. I like the idea of your initials, the year and the vine to finish it. You’ve made a lot of progress on this. Looks great!

    • it is listed in the post but I just corrected it because Acorn should have had an “s” on the end. It’s Prairie Schooler Acorns. I’ve seen some of the finished acorns someone else did and they are so cute.
