Wild Salt Air.........................Hands on Design

This nautical design actually came out in summer of 2017 as a limited kit called "Dream of the Sea" exclusive but thankfully Cathy decided to release the chart so everyone who loves the sea can stitch it.  She did change the name to Wild Salt Air for several reasons. 1st – she kept calling ‘that wild salt hair’ chart at her house…you know – Beach Hair..Don’t Care! 2nd She saw finishing potential in each of these designs beyond the original finish, which included a metal scalloped tray. While she gives sources for the Spool & Corner Gauge – these could be a mini-drum & a pillow fob, the original aqua tray is no longer available. However, we were able to find the scallop tray in a light blue and a white which work perfectly with this project.  Finishing instructions for the Spool & Pincushion are included. There will be a tutorial on the website for the Corner Gauge pocket.    The chart consists of the sampler, the pin cushion, a spool and a corner gauge bag.  over 2 on 28 ct.

Thou God Seest Me...Heartstring Samplery

Beth came up with the idea for this sampler after admiring an antique sampler with those words on it.  . So many school girls back a few hundred years ago spent their learning hours working long poems and scripture, mostly dealing with the shortness of life and the aspiration to be devout. This sampler had all of those sentiments boiled down into four simple words that reflect the entirety of the Gospel of grace. She filed it away and when searching for inspiration dug into a folder holding pictures and discovered it again.  This little sampler doesn’t resemble that early design in the slightest, other than the use of the words, but she hopes you will enjoy the combination of words, house and bands as much as she enjoyed the creation of it.  The design is shown stitched over 2 on 28 ct. linen which she coffee stained using CC Cinnamon Toast, Hazelnut: GA Brethren Blue, Caramel Corn,, Endive, Ruby Slipper and WDW Palomino.  A conversion to DMC also included.  Finished size is approx. 6.5" x 6.25" when stitched over 2.

Rachael Holmes.................Heartstring Samplery

As usual, Beth was inspired by an old sampler.  This particular old sampler was from the latter half of the 1800’s, and was almost entirely stitched in bands and sections of patterns and vines. Beth wanted a sampler that wasn't so heavy on lettering and quotes, instead focusing on repeated patterned bands. The type of bands that could be used to decorate linens and frocks, and to otherwise make regular household items more appealing. The model is stitched on 32 ct. over-dyed linen and uses  WDW Honeysuckle, Dover, Guacamole, Pecan, Havana, Mocha, Bark, Red Pear, Raspberry, Deep Sea, Bullfrog and Curry.  The design size is approx. 10" x 12.5".

Either way, she is always, without exception, a remarkable creature, capable of choosing what the hive needs most (Workers or Drones), and laying eggs to fulfill that need.  The pincushion was stitched over two on R & R's 40 ct. Patriot's Brew using Classic Colorworks: Blue Corn, Tennessee Red Clay, Honeycomb, Hazelnut: The Gentle Art: Endive, Maple Syrup and Weeks Dye Works: Grasshopper, Cayenne, Molasses, Grits.  The finished size is approx. 2.75"in diameter.  To finish she used Lone Elm's 4" round pincushion base in Timber Brown Lady Dot's Mother Lode Gold in Rick Rack and Lady Dot's Mini Pom in Sandy Gold.

Flowers of the Holy Night....................Glendon Place

Dr. Joel Roberta Poinsett, an amateur botanist and first United States Ambassador to Mexico, introduced the plant that became known as the poinsettia to the United States in 1828.  A native of southern Mexico, the poinsettia blooms in December and has  been used in that country to decorate churches for centuries.  Many consider the red color a symbol of purity and so poinsetties were traditionally part of religious ceremonies.  Many also believe that the shape of the poinsettia flowers and the leaves are a symbol of the Star of Bethlehem which led the Wise Men to Jesus.  In Mexico and Guatemala, the poinsettia is called "Flores de Noche Buena", which translates to "Flower of the Holy Night."  It is shown stitched on 28 ct.
