A quick post...

to let you know that my second release for this month is now available.  You might remember that this was my project from last year's Sampler Soiree at The Attic.  It's called A Sampler Grows.  Legacy linen (40ct.) from Picture This Plus was used with NPI's: 183, 184, 184A, 208, 224, 242, 245, 321, 694, 976, 986, & 992.  Conversion to DMC is provided with the chart.  The majority of stitching is over two, but the verse is over one, as are several motifs. The checkered lawn is done with the easy peasy rice stitch, but could be done in cross.  The garden trowel is from By Jupiter.  The 3/4 inch Wild Berries rick rack trim is available from Crescent Colours.  The chenille may be available as well.  I actually dyed what is shown for the kits last year.  The scissor cases were my gift to the attendees.  I have three left so.......... I will be doing a giveaway on my Scarlett House Facebook page for this design sometime this week.  Check out my page and watch for it!

 
Stitch counts are:  pin pillow  119w x 64h
                                    fob         25w x 34h
 
 
 
 
When I last showed you Mary Ann Farmer, she was without a frame.  She looks much better now.
 
 
This is a snippet of a sampler that will be coming soon.  Lovely shades of taupe and teal.  After this finish, I am taking a much needed break, and will stitch something for myself.  I plan to work on Charlotte Clayton while we are on our upcoming vacation.  I also snagged a piece of the new 50+ uneven linen that is now available.  I can't wait to try it.  Everyone who has tried it says that it's not difficult.  I'll let you know...

Hi Tanya, how are you going? Been away. Oh I love these two new designs. Your A Sampler Grows is really lovely and I love your Mary. Hopefully one day I will be able to get her chart. 50 count linen sounds terrifying lol, but I guess once you get the hang of it, it will be easy. Let us know what you think of it. - Sandra.

I think this is the first time visiting your blog....it's wonderful.

I just had to tell you that I ran into one of my good stitching buddies today at our LNS and she was buying A Sampler Grows and I bought Mary Ann Farmer. Unlike you, I am not a red person, so was drawn to the lovely colors in this piece.

Nice work.
