Can you say fake sampler? :-O

You know I did this on my sewing machine right? lol I finally got my Singer Quantum and I just gotta say "ITS SO DANG MUCH FUN!"

I have never been able to hand sew much but have always lusted after samplers from afar. So after church I sat down and played some more on my new toy and made myself an authentic fake sampler!  I decided to make it into a pillow because I didn't think enough in advance about the size I was making.

This machine has so many stitches and I am just having the time of my life. First computerized machine I have ever owned.

Now my mind won't be still thinking about all the possiblities! Oh and by the way 1853 was a hundred years before I was born which is when I should have really been born....
Happy Sunday Yall!


  1. Boy, sewing machines can do some amazing things now, can't they. Lovely pillow!

  2. I really love what you did with this!

  3. What a great idea to make a sampler, I love it! I'm mostly a vintage machine gal but I have a Janome with tons of stitches and I just love all those decorative stitches! Have fun with your machine!

    ps: you can use a Singer or Kenmore vintage circular stitcher device on your modern machine and make beautiful circles of decorative stitches.
