Jane Pattison Thread Pack

I'm very busy getting ready for Nashville Market/Market Season -- my friend Kathy is very busy stitching on Jane Pattison's reproduction sampler! This is being stitched with The Gentle Arts WOOL threads on 32 count Vintage Navy Bean by Lakeside Linens. You will be able to substitute The Gentle Art cottons...the names are all the same. But the original was stitched in wool, and Kathy tells me it's looking really awesome in the wools.

The Gentle Art will be doing pre-packs of the threads for this sampler; we do not know yet how many skeins will be in it or the price, but if shops are thinking they'll pick some up at market, Jim said you can let him know at The Gentle Art how many, and that way he can make sure to have enough to fill market orders.

I CAN tell you the colors of the wools/cottons (but again, I do not know yet the amounts):
  • Tea Rose
  • Chives
  • Harvest Basket
  • Faded Rose
  • Maple Syrup
  • Baked Clay
  • Schoolhouse Red
  • Terra Cotta
  • Parchment
  • Old Purple Paint
  • Soot
  • Barn Grey
  • Cidermill Brown
  • Forest Glade (I do know you will need a LOT of this color)
I am also designing the new Jenny Bean Gentle Spring Sampler. It's LOVELY so far and is in beautiful soft and gentle springy (think antique spring) colors. The fabric is 32 count PLATINUM Belfast linen, but Navy Bean in Lakeside would make a nice substitute if you prefer hand-dyed. This will also be going in a Family Tree Co. (a.k.a. Crescent Colours) frame.

I will release more information as I have it, and yes, sneak peeks will eventually come your way.

Love Jenny Bean, can't wait to see a peek of the Spring sampler. I am currently working on the Friendship sampler, and have completed the Halloween one as well. The Christmas one is on my wishlist!

another beautiful repro Theresa and in WOOL - couldn't be more of a temptation for me- I've been interested in trying the wool anyway. Hope you have a great weekend

So, how are we supposed to stick to our New Year's resolution about not adding so many things to stash when it's not even the middle of January and already I want cute monthly angels, more Jenny, and wool? Oh boy!

Stitching this in wool should be very interesting, and a change!

Jenny Bean and Spring, sounds like a great combination, perfect with soft colors.

I can't wait for the new Jenny Bean. I'm hoping she has a bunny friend along with those yummy sounding colors!
