#038"Sweet Pea" Gazebo Sampler!

A companion piece to the Silk Wysteria and Gazebo Roses Samplers

“All things bright and beautiful All Creatures great and small All things wise and wonderful The Lord God made them all...”

Deep blue Clematis twining up the right side of a new gleaming white Gazebo.. and delicate tendrils of the Sweet Pea climbing up the left, give a wonderful feeling of joy to this sampler. It has been a joy to stitch! Last summer, some of my stitching friends recommended that I design ‘another’ gazebo sampler, and I agreed! However, I’d finished the previous ‘gazebo’ samplers many years ago, and was not sure I could do another one that would augment the series. Anyway, after their kind suggestions and participation in an informal stitcher’s poll, and finally some deep thought on my part, I began Sweet Pea Sampler... As I stitched it felt as though it was stitching itself! No doubt my muse had already worked out what she wanted, cause I just had to follow my heart. There are many scrumptious colours, fibers and beads in this sampler, which surprised me as I stitched on, and will delight you as you stitch, I’m sure! This sampler is sitched on a matching fabric to the Silk Wysteria and Gazebo Roses samplers, and glories in the vibrant fuschia, mauve, deep periwinkle blue and white colours, with sparkling coloured metallics and beads... it’s a treat for the stitching gardener in you! Enjoy!

Design area: 244h x 64w (17.5”x 4.5”) Model: 28ct Confederate Grey Cashel Linen (Cut fabric: 24" X 11")
