Today's SBQ was suggested by Carol ( http://www.carolsxsblog.blogspot.com/ ) and is:
If you were to come across a sampler chart that caught your eye and appealed to you. Would you, or would you not, stitch it if it had a morbid or "creepy" saying on it? If not, why?

Why YES indeed I would! In fact I plan to use a shortened version of
“Houses of Hawk Run Hollow” by Carriage House Samplings (one of Carol’s WiPs).
In a self-designed sampler sometime in the future. Mine however will only carry the following lines from the poem - slightly altered:
“When I am dead and laid in grave & all my bones are rotten: When this you see: Remember me tho I was quite forgotten.”
I haven’t decided if it’s going to be a band sampler, spot sampler, or a combination of both. I recently purchased a book on sampler symbolism and since I’ve never designed a sampler before; this should be interesting. But it’s not going to happen for quite a while. I have far too many “iron’s in the fire” as it were, with all these WiPs to deal with at the moment.
