Jenny Bean's Christmas and Adam & Eve


I'm making good progress on Jenny Bean's Christmas Sampler. I'm offering you a sneak peek. This one is laid out rather unusually. You can't see it yet, but there is a main section of the sampler that is square, but the overall sampler is rectangular. Lots of pretty shades of pinky red and soft/antique green. It's fun to stitch. I hope to have it finished in the next few days.


Also, I'm doing a little show-and-tell of a sampler I own to see what people think. Next reproduction? It's a great old Adam & Eve sampler, one of a pair I own by two sisters (the Philpott's) from Ramsgate done in the 1830's. They are similar in size and colors, but all of the motifs and what-not are different. Should this be my next one? I bet it's a ton of fun to stitch. And she did a fabulous job. Hope y'all had a great weekend. Steve was excited about the Vikings' win last night over the Packers (Brett Favre lives just up the road from us.) I sat and stitched. After all, it's just a game!

Please please please!!!!! Love those trees on the A&E and of course A&E themselves! Loving Jenny Bean Christmas too. I started Halloween on Sunday and I am loving it - such a fun piece and those ltd edition threads make it even more fun to stitch!

Wow! I love them both! Yes, this A&E should be your next repro. It's wonderful! I love A&E's too, of course. :D Thanks for the sneak peeks.

Woohoo--I can't wait to see all of your Jenny Bean, the Christmas edition. ;) I am hoping all of my supplies for the new Jenny Bean will arrive this week.

Yes, yes, yes, a thousand times yes, it'd be fabulous if that was the repro that you released next. Maybe I'm biased because they're my favorite sampler motif, but I think they're very popular right now & would do well.

Hi Theresa. This is a great sampler. Love the big bird and the border. The Adam and Eve are great and that tree is wonderful. I definitely think you should make this your next reproduction.

I love Jenny Bean! Can you show us the verse a little better for us blind people who can see as good? LOL.

If anyone wants to see the sampler/verse better, you can click on it, and it will blow up bigger! :) I'll put a pic up soon of Jane's sister's sampler.

I am loving the peek at the Jenny Bean christmas piece. Can't wait to see the rest.

Kellie said...

I think both of those are going to be big hits. You can't go wrong with an A&E sampler. :) Love the sneak peek of Jenny Bean.

WOW - that A&E sampler is beyond awesome - hope you do decide to repro it.

Your Woodham sampler is awesome too and she and Jenny are on their way to me.
