#025 Pansy Sampler
A Needleroll, Boxtop and Scissors Fob set

Sweet faced purple and yellow Pansies, beloved of gardeners everywhere, are featured in this exquisite little sampler design mostly stitched in silk floss.  In the romantic language of flowers, the pansy was also called “Heart’s Ease” for its ability to cure the heart of any sadness and pain. Elegant whitework frames the dainty gold hearts, the pansy vine, the accents of soft gold and the violet cross stitched silk pansies.  Purple beads and white pearls shimmer softly throughout this little sampler. Make the box cover, the scissor fob, and frame or fashion the sampler into a needleroll. All can be given to a loved one as tokens of healing and love! 


“Heart’s Ease or Pansy, pleasure or thought,
Which would the picture give us of these?
Surely the heart that conceived it sought… Heart’s Ease.
Deep flowers, with luster and darkness fraught,
From Glass that gleams as the chill still seas
Lean and lend for a heart distraught… Heart’s Ease."

                                    -A.C. Swinburne
