Lavender Hearts Sampler!

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 Amethyst 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!!
