Christmas Sampler II from Cottage Garden Samplings - click to see more Halloween Sampler II from Cottage Garden Samplings - click to see more Halloween Sampler II and Christmas Sampler II
This is a pair of seasonal alphabet pieces that are neat in their own ways!
  • Presented as chart, Halloween Sampler II is worked on Picture This Plus's Murky linen - which the coolest, mangy color - it's just muddy and a MESS! So many things look REALLY good on it! You get all the letters plus some fun words for all of them with a few motifs tucked in here and there. LOTS of possibilities for beads, metallics and maybe a couple of charms or an old skeleton key!
  • Christmas Sampler II is much more subdued. Stitched on Ancient linen from Picture This Plus, the letters chart is huge - printed on one huge sheet of glossy paper - the motifs are super-cute, it finishes about 8 or 9 inches square depending on your fabric count choice. We like them both!

Somebunny Loves You
from Cottage Garden Samplings
This cute little guy measures 93 x 125, so will finish about 6-1/2 x 9 on 28ct. It is simply coded for 10 colors of DMC.

We think it'd make a cute pillow for a little girl's bedroom!

The Songbird's Garden
Oh gosh, this is lovely set of designs that were released monthly. We have the first three - Forever and Ever (Northern Cardinal and Christmas Rose), Merry & Bright (Black-capped Chickadee and Winterberry Holly; and Winter's Wisdom (Golden crowned Kinglets and Conifers). Cardinals, chickadees, pine cones and holly... you can see that this entire set if going to be lovely!

Presented as charts, we have the first 8 so far. Each measures 159 x 159 and are worked on various colors of 36ct Weeks Dye Works linens. (Tin Roof and Dove so far.) Very elegant!

Another Songbird design by Cottage Garden Samplings! We actually thought it was #9 of her Garden Songbird Series... and even sent it to our Auto-Stitchers by accident! (#9 is still on the way!) However, the other birds in this series of designs are really very classic, and they are a little larger.

Peace on Earth is stitched on Weeks Dye Works Dove hand-dyed linen and measures only 125 in stitch count. We love it, and know you have time to finish it before next Christmas!

from Cottage Garden Samplings
What a cute medley of Halloween-themed words all bunched together into this alphabet piece! Stitched mostly in hand-dyed blacks (There are three different shades in here... Blackboard, Raven and Soot!), you get just a hint of bright coppers and oranges here and there!

Finishing approx 10 x 10 on 32ct, they suggest Weeks Dye Works Havana Linen, which comes in several counts. Maybe add a little black Petite Treasure Metallic Braid to the capital letters???? Offered as a chart.

A cute sampler - this baby is huge! Stitch count is 235 x 196 -- so it finishes approx 17 x 14 on 28ct! Very pretty motifs, the basket of wool yarn, scissors and thread are fun -- you could probably work those together with the sheep and the verse if you don't have room or time to get the rest of this finished.

The shepherdess is hugely grand, however, and so is the house! Charted for DMC, the roses are 315 and 316, grays are 844 and 3787, and good greens of 503 and 3363.
