Grace...........JBW Designs

Sometimes it's the simplicity of a design that makes it so beautiful and that's what this design is for me.  It's beautiful in it's simplicity.  But at this time in the world, it also has another meaning....courteous goodwill, something that is lacking as we all struggle through the pandemic, some attacking others for their views.  This is a gorgeous reminder to us all to have grace and treat others with grace. If you were lucky enough to be named Grace, this would be perfect hung on your bedroom door, or hung in your room.  Shown stitched on 32 ct. Antique White using"

Pins & Orts Stitching Companion....................Heartstring Samplery

Originally taught at a retreat at Salty Yarns, this 4" x 4" sized piece became a topper for an orts container with a matching strawberry fob for scissors, both to help the stitcher organize their stitching area.  The original container was from a metal container from Hobby Lobby and if you are able to get a metal tin of some kind to use you could also attach a magnet to hold your scissors so that your organization is complete.  If you can't find a metal container, any container will work.  This is shown stitched on 40 ct. Patriot's Brew from R & R Reproductions.  I also know 40 ct. is too daunting for some of you so just stitch on a more comfortable linen count, find a larger container, a basket or box and mount the design on that.  Stitched using Weeks Dye Works: Bark, Blue Spruce, Cattail, Curry, Fathom, Grasshopper, Kohl, Madison Rose, Merlot, River Rock, Sanguine, Teal Frost, and Whiskey.

A. Thomas 1882 "The Nellies"....................Hands across The Sea

This sampler is Welsh and is believed to have been about exotic animals that were brought by the circus to the valleys of Wales. The circuses toured to even the smallest of towns and in the 19th century, the development of the railways enabled circuses to travel further.  in July 1848 the town of Tregaron's population was treated to a procession of caravans, horses, bears, and elephants from Batty’s Travelling Menagerie. Some reports state that the elephant drank water contaminated by a lead mine and died shortly afterward. The traveling show -moved on, leaving either a dying or dead elephant behind.  Shown stitched on 40 ct.

Ann Gardner of Pilerton Priery, did not record her age, but we suspect that she was a very young child and that this was her first attempt at stitching a sampler. She diligently recorded the alphabet although her spelling certainly needed improvement. While there are still Gardners living in the English village, we have been unable to find Ann's name anywhere and feel Ann was a diminutive of her given name.

Eggstravaganza......Noteworthy Needle

First she had us stitching on reading glasses, last year she had us stitching on craft pumpkins and this year she has us stitching on papier-mache egg-shaped eggs for Easter.  Janis is finding items we never even thought to use for our cross stitch and makes for a fun stitch.  These are stitched using paper mache eggs and stitched with #5 pearl cotton.  Janis recommends 2 strands, but when stitching the pumpkins I used 1 strand and it was easier to get through and I think the coverage was fine, but you can try both ways to test what you are most comfortable with.  The book of charts includes 5 charts to be done on the egg boxes, plus the same 5 charts done for stitching on Aida or linen.  

The paper-mache eggs come unfinished so you will have to paint them, and they measure 8.4" x 11.6"

Quaker Style III..............Prairie Girls Sampling Needleart

What is so wonderful about these Quaker Samplers is that while the sampler as a whole is a fun stitch as you have so many different motifs included, but you can also grab the motifs and stitch just one to put on a small, needlebook, pincushion, fob, etc.  So if you don't like stitching the entire piece it is quite useful for other things.  This particular Quaker Style project was the creation of Majorie Massey.  She chose to stitch on 35 ct. linen, but you can use your favorite count, She used DMC 844, 646, 3768, 501 but Quaker also looks wonderful done in one color.  And check all out the small motifs, sheep, candle, potted plant, trees, birdhouse, basket, flowers, spinning wheel, etc.  Also included is an alphabet for monogramming.

Finished size is approx. 7" x 10"
