Thyme for a Harvest Sampler

I used to do a lot of stitchery samplers


but
my vision isn't what it used to be........so I painted a sampler!




This is a 36" wood shovel  that I found at a thrift store



I decided to use a
pattern on it
called
HARVEST SAMPLER


this is a design by Terrye French


I transferred the design to my surface using graphite paper



This was a fun FALL design to paint!






I added some sunflowers to the handle

This would make a nice fall thyme door or wall hang
Happy Painting!
