Home of a Needleworker Thistle Manor Version

When Little House Needleworks released the design Home of a Needleworker, I fell hard for this sampler.  My stitching buddies were surprised.  The reason they were surprised is because of the color palette--I am not a pastel girl, I am a primitive girl.  Anne, a very creative friend, once said to me "make it your own."

So, I decided to make Home of a Needleworker--Thistle Manor version.  I changed the fabric, I changed the colors (all of them).  I bring you Home of a Needleworker.

When my stitching buddies saw the completed sampler they almost did not recognize it.


  1. This is so beautiful and after seeing you needlework is one that should be proudly displayed in your home

  2. so admire folks like you - courageous enough to change fabric and color pallets from the recommended and personalize the stitch.

  3. I love how you made the piece your very own. Great frame too!
