Another busy week,another new sampler

It's been another very busy week around here...and another new sampler pattern emerges....An Almighty Friend.
Everyone seems to be anxiously awaiting spring and warm weather...and I thought a sampler with flowers....birds...bees and butterflies...and roses on the gate would be fitting. Lots of color in this design.....and a flowing leaf border. Charted for DMC to make it easy for all. Design size is 174 x 174 stitches. Finished size is 10.9 x 10.9 inches. Pattern is $12.99 plus postage. Color blocks plus symbols charts included.. Email nbelgian@aol.com if you would like one.

I love the man that scorns to bend
beneath afflictions blast
Who trusts in an almighty friend
for his reward at last



The next sampler will be another large one....just getting the rough draft done on the pattern....and it looks like another 25 hours or more to chart this one. You can see why I send these out to model stitchers.

We still have lots of snow on the ground here...but I do love winter. I like spring...but our hot and humid summers follow....so I will enjoy winter for a while yet.

Make sure you have signed up for the Valentine's Day drawing that is quickly approaching.

Thanks for stopping by.......back to the drawing board.
Nancy

  3. Love your work, yes I do love winter and spring. Summer heat is hard on me and having an air conditioner on all day bothers me, but it keeps it cool. I saw a red cardinal at my feeder today so I think Spring will be here.

  14. I'm loving all your new samplers! My hubby says the hot, humid summer weather is just as bad as the brutal winter weather -- they both keep him stuck in the house. I much prefer warmer weather when I don't have to wear 10 layers of clothes. Happy Valentine's Day!

    1. The verse was from an 1800's sampler I had seen years ago....I always jot down these verses when I see them.....
