Sneak Peek at Jenny Bean #1

I put the last little stitches in Jenny Bean's Friendship Sampler last night. Oh, it is so pretty! My son Harrison said he loves the color palette, and my husband (as always) said: "Good work." Once a week I will reveal another quadrant of the sampler. This one you've already seen a little bit of, but next week, you'll get to see a little more.

I'm posting a threads list here, too, so you can check your stash and make sure you've got what you need. The Gentle Art will be selling thread packs at market to shops (NONE of these are limited edition colors.) I hope you enjoy this sampler -- it was really fun to stitch.
  • Parchment
  • Wood Trail
  • Toasted Barley
  • Moonlit Path
  • Cherry Bark
  • Espresso Bean
  • Old Brick
  • Forest Glade
  • Carmel Corn
  • Mustard Seed
  • Melon Patch
  • Dried Thyme
  • Aged Pewter
  • Maple Syrup
  • Grape Arbor
  • Endive
  • Oatmeal
  • Tomato
  • Raven
  • Piney Woods
A DMC conversion will be provided on the graph. The fabric is 40 ct. French Vanilla by R&R Reproductions. On 40 count, I used one thread, and you will only need one of each skein. If you're going to stitch on any other count, I recommend you get (2) of the Parchment (it's used to fill in all behind the verse.) I'm ordering an Eastside Mouldings Frame.

If you want to pre-order this from me, either just the graph, or the fibers/fabric and/or frame, just do so through my web site. Or have your shop make sure to stop by my booth at market to pick up graphs.

Looking great so far! Can you give us the stitch count? Just want to check my fabric stash to see if I have something I can use. Thanks!
