I chose the colours for my sampler with the rich tonings of the drapes in my living room in mind as I planned to make it into a bell pull  to hang in this room. Looking around today I realised the chosen colours are a perfect match for this little chair. The little chair was made in High Wycombe Buckinghamshire England about 120 years ago and has been  in the Westfield family all that time coming out to NZ about 50 years ago.

I am slowing catching up with the sampler parts, although I have yet to finish January, I have completed February and March.  The Facebook group has been great to follow to see everyone's colours and their progress. For more information on the sampler see Linen and Threads home

I am off to New Plymouth today to stitch with the Sampler Group so hopefully a days stitching and the part for April will be completed

Oh Lee! Your idea of the bell pull is perfect. The colors you chose are excellent and go perfectly with your heirloom chair. Well done.
