Not so vintage sampler....!

I love embroidery and stitching, and for some time now I have wanted to buy a really old vintage sampler, but they are way too expensive and I can not afford one.. Sooo I decided that I want to make my own... I drew out the pattern below my self , by hand, then scanned it into my laptop, so I had a digital copy of it...

I have now started to stitch the design onto a dark beige linen fabric..

I don't know many stitches at the moment but I am working on it!! lol.... I have a stitch bible that I am working my way through slowly...

I am hoping it will look old fashioned when its finished.. Probably more true than I realise, with the amount of time it will take me to sew..
