Rounding the corners
You asked about the sampler that is the top of the blog photo.
I can show you the design that I purchased that inspired it - here - but I don't think that the inspiration has much to compare with the end result. I wanted an alphabet sampler. If you notice, that inspiration sampler is sometimes missing letters, mostly 'w', sometimes other letters. It drives me crazy and I was going to have to put the missing letters all back in. So I started drawing things out, and looking up other alphabets, and then it just morphed into my own sampler. I also wanted it to fit a standard off the shelf size of frame. I added the lions - because I liked the motif. So you won't find it for sale - and it is the most basic of samplers. But it is my sampler.
