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.

This fresh summer sampler embodies all that we love about living life near the water.  The top of Harbour Village Sampler shows colourful little houses nestled on the banks of a river or inlet. The fishing pier and canneries, the little boats and kayaks are out on a beautiful summer day. On the distant horizon you can see the snow capped mountains. In the middle there are a few bands, like the satin waves, blue forget-me-knots, and some drawn thread in varying shades of blue to enhance the summertime feeling.  �The peace of the hills is about me, and the leisure of the summer clouds is mine...� a perfect quote for the middle of this sampler. However, you can easily change these words to suit your own circumstances! Near the bottom of the sampler, you�ll see the �village green� alive with the people of the town. They are gathered at a summertime barbeque picnic.The kids are playing, moms and dads are chatting and enjoying their outing.  ! The lighthouse on the opposite shore and the church at the far left each provide their symbolic �safe harbour� for all the people in the village. At the bottom you�ll find the last few bands, including a luscious floral band, again in blues, to complete the feeling of summer life and abundance. Like it's companion Christmas Village Sampler, this sampler can be easily stitched in parts, and can be separated for various smaller enjoyable projects. Enjoy all or parts of this sampler to keep your summer alive all year round.  Finished design size approx. 16" x 10" when stitched on 28 ct. Rue Green Linen
