Now that my children are grown, samplers cover their walls of their old bedrooms also. Here is the sampler wall in Carolyn's room.

I don't remember all of the names of the pieces. The one on the far left is The Garden Path from Sheepish Designs. The second one from the left is a Drawn Thread sampler and the original ES Floral Sampler is below that. Next is Sara Hathorne from Hester's Needle. Since that wasn't a reproduction sampler, I changed the information on the sampler. I think the sampler to the right is Family Ties by Needlemaid Designs. I added my own verse. Below that is the Blue Rose Sampler from the Nostalgic Needle. The final sampler is Kind and True from Sheepish Designs.
 There are a few more samplers in the room on other walls, but one of my favorite things in Carolyn's room is this wonderful print I found a number of years ago. I just love the view of the ladies sitting at their needlework frames.
I'm sorry that I couldn't get a clearer photo, but there is an enlargement below.

Thanks so much for sharing your sampler walls with us. You are amazing! I hope someday to have that many samplers on my walls! I love that print of the ladies stitching -- how cool is that!

I love seeing all your sampler walls. You're going to make me get out the hammer soon and deal with the DH later! The Sheepish Design on the far end is The Garden Path. It was the first big sampler I ever did - way back in 1989 and still remains one of my favorites.

Thanks, Deb, for the info--I just added it to my blog post.

Maybe you should show your DH some sampler walls.
