Hi friends! I have a question for you all. What is your opinion on stitchery in the kitchen? Do you put your finished work on display in your kitchen? Are they framed pieces? Are they behind glass? Do they need to be a certain distance from the sink? Do they need to be a certain distance from the stove? Do you think it is just plain horrid to put stitchin' in the kitchen? Tell me please? I truly want to know what YOU think. I do. I want to know what YOU do in your very own kitchen.
One of the very first things we hung up in this apartment were my two samplers in the kitchen. I had these hanging in our home.
Well, hang on to your needles ladies, this may shock some of you. I do NOT have these under glass. Yes, that is right. They are 8 years old, have been in the kitchen the whole time, and do not look worse for it. These are out of sunlight and I dust them. They are near the sink, but not close enough or low enough to ever get water on them.
Since we have moved to this apartment, I am very limited with display space. BUT! Yes, BUT! I have always wanted a sampler wall. For almost two decades now! And I finally have one. In the kitchen. Yes, my itty, bitty kitchen. I have a wide open wall, pale pink of course, duh! The entire apartment minus the boys' bedroom is pale pink, remember?!😍
So now you know why I worked up a pink sampler. For the pink kitchen. Like, hello?! Are you with me? Here it is.
And yes, this one is under glass. No, not fancy glass. It is the wall opposite the window. It does not really get sun directly on it though. We pull the blind every single day. We must to prevent my headaches. This is a store bought, white painted wood 5x7 frame that works very nicely.
This pattern was charted by Barbara Hutson and is available for free from The Attic in their January 4th, 2018 newsletter. You need to scroll to page 21. Go HERE
I do want your opinion on putting stitching here though.
