A Banner Occasion
A Banner Occasion Image

Celebrating a special moment, a special birthday or want to commemorate an event? This pattern is in honour of Jeannette reaching a special birthday this year.  “A Banner Occasion” says it all, whether it is a birthday as in Jeannette’s case or some other milestone, it would be lovely to stitch.  It is  6 x 6 1/2″ on 32 ct Light Examplar by Lakeside Linens.  The pattern has the special Poppy Thread from Australia’s Cottage Garden Thread  Co. included in the chart and the Kelmscott  and tiny Micro buttons used in the piece. The other threads used are Gentle Art and Weeks Dye Works cottons.

ABC Pyn Roll Bargello Sheep Needlekeep
ABC Pyn Roll Bargello Sheep Needlekeep Image

Sometimes a little set of smalls comes out of a bigger sampler mostly because you enjoy them so much you want to rework them a bit and have a nice little set of matching accessories to the bigger sampler and this was what happened with the English Beauty last year. Creating “ABC pyn Pillow and Bargello Sheep Needlekeep”  was a natural and I hope that you enjoy it as much as I have. It is on 32ct Lt Mocha Zweigart  fabric but can be done on any neutral fabric. There are 3 pieces to this set: a Needlebook with an insert to it, making a removable pincushion and a large long rectangle shaped pyn roll that can have quite a few uses.  A cut piece of fabric of 13 x15 will generously stitch all the pieces. There is a silk thread pack and separately there is  a finishing pack with the wool and other items to finish as you see in the photo.

ABC Sampler
ABC Sampler Image

I love typefaces and playing with fonts. I love the way are the same but diverse and the different feel each font gives you. So I combined my love of typefaces with my love of samplers and stitching to create the “ABC Sampler“.  It is  a large sampler with the ‘abc’ cross stitched and then 3 bands of lovely specialty stitches grouped into 3 types of smaller samplers. One focuses on just the specialty stitches in the needlepoint group, then blackwork is the focus and lastly is the motif type sampler. It is stitched on a neutral fabric on several different counts, whether you like 32 ct or 35,36 all will look equally well, as well as 40 ct. It uses silk threads and the design size is 8 x 13  1/3”.

Bird Box
Bird Box Image

Since ancient times birds have been connected with the sky and having a super natural link between heaven and earth. We seem to be so enchanted with birds! We love birds on samplers and small pin cushions or  scissors fobs. They are a joy to stitch. In this chart you will meld your abilities to stitch and do some finishing as these parts all fit into a box created for the sampler and the smalls called a ‘shadow box’ and in this case I am calling it “Bird Box’ . It is comprised of a sampler about 4 x 6 and then 3 small squares under 2 x2” which create a biscornu,  a needlekeep and a scissors pocket on the back to fit into the tray. It uses 32 ct Butter Pecan by Lakeside Linens.

A little fun chart for you to enjoy is ‘Gather Friends’ – a collaboration chart by Paulette Stewart of Plum Street Samplers and Jeannette Douglas.  It is a little pincushion finished in 2 ways – your choice of doing a double sided one  or doing 2 pincushions with a pattern on each.  Each little pattern is a 2 1/2″ square for you to enjoy.

Memorial Sampler
Memorial Sampler Image

This was a commissioned piece for a rather special stitcher. Gina Reyes passed away in her 60th year and having just turned 60 myself- it seems far too young. She was a big JDD fan and was a wonderful person, so when her husband asked if I would do something to commemorate her life, I knew I had to. This piece was stitched for her husband Tony and on his sampler are some changes and some special things just for her – it will be noted in the chart the changes – and of course her name and date in the written part. I hope that this small gift of stitching may help you through some difficult time that may come in your life too. It is stitched on 32 or 36 ct Zweigart Flax. It is stitched with silk thread. There is no thread pack available. The design is almost 11 x 11”.

Free pattern –One of these little sweet pillows  is the complimentary pattern with purchase and the other 3 were so cute I called them Finger Pyn pillows, <because they are no bigger than a minute> and those 3 are in a pattern together for purchase. They use cotton floss and are approx. 1  1/2” square.

Spring by the Sea
Spring by the Sea Image

How many holidays are taken by water?  It seems our longing for the sea is always our first choice for a holiday and in stitching it is the same, we are drawn to ocean themed patterns whether you live by water or you don’t. This pattern “Spring by the Sea” begins the journey of the sea in all seasons. It is part of a greater whole- 4 samplers that creates one. You can certainly do just the one season, that is fine too, but they do look lovely together and create a grand ‘by the sea’ sampler.  Each Sampler is approx. 6 x 6- and as a great whole creates a little over 12 x12.  It is stitched on 32 ct Meadow Mist by Zweigart’s Silkweaver fabric.

Did you enjoy Vintage Stars pattern a few years ago? The Quaker stars configured with an alphabet to give a Vintage feel to the popular stars motif in Quaker patterns. This time the focus is on flowers with a Quaker flavour. Again we have an alphabet over an increased amount of threads but still in a Quaker style and pots of flowers. The pattern is called ‘Vintage Flowers” and is stitched on Natural fabric with Gentle Art and Weeks Dye Works cottons. The design size is 8 1/8 x 8 3/4″ on 36 ct fabric.
