Primitive Traditions has a lovely collection of samplers. Lovely for framing... there are lots of other finishing options demonstrated here. Note the Needfuls Sets. Eyeglass cases, Checkbook Covers and little Credit Card Cases! Pretty Quaker motifs, fun American Traditional things, too... just enjoy the artwork of Cathy Campbell!
Plenty and Grace
Hey, you might recognize this as the TOP of Sarah Elliot's Sewing Chest! We loved her sewing ensemble while we had it... and I guess Cathy did too... as she re-released just the design that graced the top of the lid. The picture is of a seaside port.
The verse speaks of the sailor who is doomed to sail with the blast of the gale... bending over waves which may soon be his grave... remembers his home with a tear. Stitch count of 160 x 95, you'll want to choose any light blue colored linen. Stitched in DMC and overdyeds. Offered as the chart.
Sarah Elliot's Home Port
Primitive Traditions has a new piece, originally designed as a wedding sampler. Sort of a *Family Established* kind of thing. May joy and peace surround you. Contentment latch your door (that word is crammed in there... just like the stitcher from times past would have had to do to get it in there!) May happiness be with you now and bless you evermore.
Offered as a chart, this finishes approx 11 x 13 on 36ct, and is charted for Belle Soie Silks. It does feature a couple of specialty stitches -- Eyelets and French Knots, but nothing too involved. Colors are wonderful, design style is so balanced and traditional, really a very pretty piece. You'll notice initials all over on it... those can be family initials, the 'house established' info... whatever you want!
