New Pattern Release... Great Grandma Ida's Birth Sampler

Read more about Ida's life.

Because this is an alphabet sampler, you will be able to easily customize it to honor the life or death of someone you love. If you wish to represent any country of the world, other than the already included American flag, I will chart it for you and add to your sampler pack by request.

There is also an instruction sheet telling you my method of inserting a photograph into the finished sampler.

Stitch Count: 110 x 170
Model stitched on Weeks Dye Works 35ct. Linen-colored linen
Using flosses from The Gentle Art: Dried Thyme, Pomegranate, Blackboard, Endive
And flosses from Weeks Dye Works: Havana, Red Pear, Sand, Teal Frost
Conversion to DMC provided inside.

You may purchase the pattern through my etsy shop, but if you aren't an etsy user, you can contact me directly via email:

You can also wait and buy from your local needlework shop. My distributors will receive their shipment early next week. If your LNS doesn't carry my designs, ask! I am still so new to the market that there are many out there who don't know about my work, and I am counting on you to help spread the word.
