We Live in Hope..............Blackbird Designs

This leaflet consists of two samplers, "We Live in Hope" and "Home From Sea".    On the first page of the leaflet, you will see the original sampler which inspired both of these samplers.  It was stitched in Belfast, Ireland by Eleanor Davey.   One can only imagine a young girl waiting for her father or older brother to return safely from the sea.  Ships are featured on both of the samplers, which makes sense as shipbuilding had begun in earnest in Belfast 42 years before Eleanor completed her sampler.  Belfast was one of the greatest shipbuilding ports in the world.  Some of the largest ships were built there.  Noting the motifs on her sampler it is easy to believe someone in her family sailed the seas.  Both samplers are stitched on 36 ct. Vintage Homespun by R & R Reproductions. 

We live in Hope is stitched using WDW Beige, Blue Jeans, Bright Leaf, Caper, Cocoa, Deep Sea, Garrison Green, Kris Bon Bon, Red Pear and Williamsburg.  Sampler size is approx. 11" x 10 5/8" when finished. 

Home From Sea is stitched using: Beige, Blue Jeans, Caper, Cocoa, Deep Sea, Dove, Flatfish, Palomino, Red Pear, Schneckley and Williamsburg.  It's finished design size is 6 5/8" x 5 7/8"

Autumn Bird Pincushion....................From the Heart

If you need a pincushion to fit into the Lone Elm Shaker pin cushion base, Autumn Bird Pincushion is a fun, easy stitch that will do the trick.  It's a fabulous design incorporating the red bird surrounded by the alphabet and sitting on a tree branch.  You could change colors to make it a spring bird if you need to but it's an easy 2 day stitch so it would be great for a quick gift for your stitching friend.
