New Sampler pattern preview

I have another sampler pattern done and it will be off to a model stitcher tomorrow. This is The Charm of Friendship....and is 11 x 14 inches. Using the stitching program it is shown on cream linen as I will be using my antique champagne linen...a mottled antique cream. I have some nice over dyed floss for these patterns. The charts will be available with or without floss. Charted for DMC....but will be so much nicer with over dyed floss.
I have so many verses that I have seen on antique samplers and I hope to design a sampler for every one of them. It will take me a while...it's a good thing I have 22 model stitchers this year! Sometimes the only thing I like about an antique sampler is the verse...or a motif or a border....so I will be combining these elements into my own designs. And then there are times that I just let the imagination go.....and dabble with the motifs and experiment as I did on this one. I love the soft rose colors.....especially on cream. It is 11"x17"
I just thought I would give you a sneak peak at this one. Back to the drawing board......

And be sure to sign up for the Valentine's Day give-away.
Thanks for stopping by.
