Because I love you guys...


...here's another sneak peek -- this is "A Sampling by Ann," and is designed using elements from the Ann Grant sampler. I changed the colors, the fabric, flipped a few motifs, tidied up a few more, added my own flair, and voila! I think it's AWESOME! I wanted to create something for stitchers who wanted something historic, but who don't have time for 40,000 stitches. You can order this from me, but you can also ask your local shop to pick this up at market.

Here's a supply list:

40 ct. Heritage Linen (by Silkweaver)
Needlepoint Silks 207, 148, 203, 587, 315, 181, 336, 693
Au Ver a Soie 2212
Frame: 7 by 7 "The Auntie" in Fleamarket Blackbird by The Family Tree Frame Co. (aka, Crescent Colours)

More sneak peeks coming...

I think it's beautiful...and definitely a size that is do-able. :)

This one is really sweet! I like the "sharp" (as in tidy) look it has.

Theresa, thanks so much for doing this mini-version of the Ann Grant sampler. A sampling of a sampler. I love it! Who knows when I'd find time to stitch the large version, but this will give me something to do while I'm waiting.
