Delaware Historical Society Sneak Peek

Hi Everyone.

I hope you are enjoying your day with family and friends!  We had a beautiful summer weekend in Ohio.   My son, his wife, and dog Max were here along with my Dad and a good friend, Cynthia.  I wanted to give you a quick sneak peek at a new Delaware Historical Society sampler that I was given permission to reproduce. 
It is the Richards sampler.  My model stitcher, Candace, is doing a great job!  I don't know what I would do without my model stitchers they provide me with more time to design.  Thanks!


Thank you to all the service men.

Today, would not be right, among all the cookouts and family gatherings,  unless we thanked those who have protected our country.  Some have given the ultimate sacrifice and my heart goes out to those families.  Thank you one and all!

Free Samper Design from Olde Willow Stitchery, Inc.

Hi Stitchers,

It has been awhile since I provided a free design, so I have decided to share this small sampler design if stitched over 2 and sampler pocket if stitched over 1 ground linen thread.  Please choose 3 colors of your liking.  Originally this design had Olde Willow Threads and I no longer dye threads.  The design calls for 3 colors of your choosing (I used a teal color,  light brown, brown.)   You are welcome to share with other stitchers, but this should not be kitted without permission from me.

If you choose to do the pocket then stitch over one ground linen thread with one-ply of thread.  If you are doing the sampler, stitch the sampler design over two.  I am sorry the picture isn't clearer, but I had to scan it from a previous picture.  Finishing instructions included for sampler pocket.  It used Lakeside Linens 28 ct. "Mocha".

Here is the link (You may need to paste this into your  browser for it to work if it won't work when you click on the link):

 Enjoy your week.
