I am currently hard at work on a patriotic design that I am hopeful will be ready for an early June release- its taking me FOREVER to finish, because I am stitching it up two ways, one as a pinkeep, and one as a sampler.
I have been looking at photos of some of my older designs- the ones that I stitched to sell as a finished sampler- back before I had cross stitch software. A few of them are begging me to be published. I picked my top four candidates, and thought I'd let you decide which is the first to be pulled out of mothballs.
Here they are, in no particular order:
Constance Sullivan- I hated the fabric that I stitched this one on, but love the trio of bouquets inspired by a mid 1800's sampler.
EN 1815, stitched with a vintage variegated Coats and Clark floss from my Grandma's sewing basket...
Prudence Talcott, the only one of my finished samplers that I regret selling- almost as much for that pretty vintage frame as for the sampler itself!
As for the Giveaway... I will draw a name from those who offer feedback in the comments on this blog post (please include your vote for one of the above designs). The drawing will be on Monday, Memorial Day. The winning person will be able to either pick one of my currently available charts for free, or can sign up to be the first to receive the newly-charted, democratically-chosen sampler choice from above.
Sound like fun?
