Wonderfully Made...............................Erica Michaels Designs

A colorful sampler which matches the exuberance of the design elements - this is based on an antique sampler Linda owns, filled with fanciful flora and fauna. Instead of reproducing the sampler, she chose to adapt it and incorporate the verse from Psalm 139: You are beautiful, for you are fearfully and wonderfully made. First is a lovely piece Linda stitched on silk gauze (included in the chartpak). The pretty green and gold colors are striking on the dark blue background (which is much easier to do on gauze versus stitching on black or dark blue linen.) The linen sampler simply exudes happiness and would make a charming remembrance to mark the birth of a new member of your family. You are sure to enjoy stitching the purple deer, blue ducks, the red rabbits, and rather exotic flowers and plants. The original sampler is extremely faded on the front side, but when removed from the frame, the backside proved to be ever so colorful. It was a bit much for Linda, so the colors used in the sampler shown on linen are muted a bit while maintaining the variety and liveliness 13-year-old Jane Scott stitched into her work.

Stitched on 40 ct. gauze included using

WDW: Artichoke, Banana Pudding, Blue Heron, Blue Suede(10 yds), Yukon Gold

DMC: 937  

Finished size is approx. 2" x 3 1/4"

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"

Cathedral Woods Goddess..............Mirabila

"She lives in the densely wooded forest.
The cathedral ceilings are lacy pine trees.
Her carpets are woven with moss, sage and ivy.
The droplets from clean rain make up crystal
chandeliers knitted together by spider webs. The lightning bugs light her path down the hallways.
It is a fine castle for this wild Queen who is
sometimes seen wandering its corridors at dusk.
The euphoric cricket opera plays on all night."
