blackwork sampler village shop

Finally finished this WIP. A black-work sampler called ‘Village Shop’. It’s taken some time. Not that it was particularly difficult, but a bit tedious. However, a useful exercise in practising black-work, and it does look very effective now it’s finished.

Design is 22cm x 10cm (8.66 in x 4 in), on 16 h.p.i Aida, and was a kit from Derwentwater Designs in Penrith, Cumbria. Designer is Rose Swanwell. There are another two in the series.

Question is, what do I do with this one? Current thoughts are leaning towards making it the centrepiece of a suogan or quilt, as I have done with previous pieces of work.
