A SAMPLER, NEEDLEROL AND PINCUSHION SET!
From the moment I started this elegant silk thread
sampler I loved it! The colour Lavender is a favorite of mine, and I'd always liked the
idea of designing a sampler purely around one colour. The delicate Hardanger heart and the
flowers at the top of the sampler were done in honour of a friend's wedding, and the rest
just flowed from there. There are three drawn thread sections which are embellished with
the herringbone, foursided, and
honeycomb pulled stitches. You'll find some petite light
blue sparkle beads to enhance the lavender
flowers, some Cape
heart beads, and also some lilac pearls to draw attention to the widest drawn
thread section. The blue-green contrasts well with the Lavender shades. Finally, all the
beautiful colours come together in the Bargello band which anchors the bottom of the
sampler. I hope you enjoy stitching with these colours as much as I did!!
