A S Sampler 2 from Lila's Studio

A S Sampler 2
Something fun to stitch by Lila's Studio, this is an adaptation of a sampler stitched in 1890. The original was worked in graduating colors - lighter at the top, to much darker near the bottom.

This one is mostly charcoal blacks with the pop of DMC 816 Garnet. 3799, 730 (a rogue green!), 816, 310, 844, 535, 645 and 648... it's actually a gorgeous color palette! Finishes approx 5-1/2 x 17 on 40ct!

Nevermore from Lila's Studio Spring Quaker from Lila's Studio Spring Quaker and Nevermore
Lila's Studio has two new designs... both are full, full, full of busy-ness and are tremendously eyecatching!
  • Spring Quaker reminds that 'No matter how long the winter, spring is sure to follow.' Pretty Quaker motifs all around, that commanding alphabet, the sweet rabbits down at the bottom, and the pretty village scene in the center, the whole thing is very colorful, happy and pretty. Charted for DMC and Classic Colorworks hand-dyeds, on 36ct, this will finish a generous 12 x 15! This will NOT get lost on the wall!
  • Nevermore is inspired by the narrative poem 'The Raven' by Edgar Allan Poe. Coded for hand-dyeds, the dark colors against the slightly mangy light background with touches of the golden moon colors, make it so striking. Finishing approx 8 x 12 on 40ct... I just love those intricate zig-zag borders!

Spring Parade #1 from Lila's Studio Spring Parade #2 from Lila's Studio    Spring Parade models from Lila's Studio
Spring Parade
What a cute set of bunnies all driving their fruit and vege convertibles! Four 'cars' in two different pattern sets, each ornament measures 70 x 70 stitches - so almost 4 x 4 on 36ct - and is coded for DMC floss.

Make them each into individual stand-up blocks to make a 'train' around a bowl of dyed eggs, but cute all stitched in a row as well. I think my favorite is the Strawberry Car... but Carrot isn't far behind! Set one has the blue egg, basket, carrot race car and duck. Set two has the strawberry, radish, sheep and artichoke cart!

Miss B's Apiary from Lila's Studio With Love from Lila's Studio With Love and Miss B's Apiary
Lila's Studio has two new releases to tempt your stitching fingers!
  • Miss B's Apiary features a beekeeper in her garden. Pretty floral border surrounding everything, her bees look peaceful, under control and quiet! Measures 8 x 9 on 40ct.
  • With Love - Let all that you do be done with love. The rose motif in this was taken from an 1853 antique sampler... I just love that. Finishes approx 4 x 6 on 40ct, this is coded for DMC.

Let Freedom Ring from Lila's Studio Let Freedom Ring
This is a beautiful piece that will finish an impressive 15 x 19 on 32ct. Released in 2017... we've had it, but I didn't pay attention to it until recently. Just lovely, Independence Hall is so pretty with the trees in the background. All the windows, the arches, the hand-dyed threads making the bricks look real... the billowing flag and cracked Liberty Bell... this piece makes quite a statement!

25 Shades of DMC along with 6 hand-dyeds... the building is Classic Colorworks Calico Kitty, and the trees are Endive, both of which require 4 skeins of thread. Lila has done an excellent job with the chart - it's huge, full of contrast and has symbols next to each other that are EASY to tell apart. Just whip this right up - it'd look great in the Family room or an office!

Seasons Blessings from Lila's Studio
Seasons Blessings
Just a pair of 3 x 3 designs (stitched over 2 on 40ct.) Coded for hand-dyeds or DMC, very simple but cute.

Winter is on Picture This Plus's Oaken, while Fall is on Cyprium - which has a bit more yellow in it than PTP's Gingerbread color. This is presented in chart format.

Anna Ohman 1873 from Lila's Studio

Anna Ohman 1873
By Lila's Studio, this is an adaptation of an antique sampler found at an estate sale in Illinois... probably stitched in Sweden.

Lila had to fix the top band, and chose Classic Colorworks Used Brick (3 skeins) for her piece which features an eagle adorned with maple leaves and surrounded with an oak leaf border. Just beautiful, it measures 158 x 156 in stitch count. Presented as a chart.

A Quaker Welcome from Lila's Studio

A Quaker Welcome
A very striking piece inspired by Quaker motifs and the Roman Alphabet style it loved. This finishes about 8-1/2 x 11-1/2 on 40ct linen, and is stitched with both DMC and hand-dyed threads.

I like the motifs interrupted by the houses, actually that whole top area is really neat. She's charted 'a token of love' to stitch into the cartouche if you'd like.

Well, just like her companioning Halloween Quakers chart... we aren't even sure The Quakers CELEBRATED Christmas... but we think they should have! Lila's studio has another awesome sampler full of fun motifs.

There are snowmen inside one motif, mittens in another. Santa's boots are down there too. Stitched on a mangy Dapple Gray PTP fabric (or anything you want!), this is coded for Gentle Art Sampler threads or DMC, and it finishes approx 13 x 9.

Halloween Quaker from Lila's Studio - click to see more Halloween Quaker
WOW, is this a cool piece!!!!! By Lila's Studio, this is stitched on Picture This Plus's Murky Linen -- it's a dark, drab but dramatic muddy grey-brown fabric! (Simply delicious, as it's name does not suggest!) Halloween Quaker measures a generous 261 x 180, so it finishes approx 16 x 11 on 32ct. Stitched with Classic Colorworks hand-dyed flosses, this has several cool elements to it.

The Quaker-inspired motifs are fun, especially the unusual spiders in one, and the black cats in another. That little village at the bottom is cool, the witch legs and boots are colorful, but your eye really goes to that silouette right in the center! Beautiful colors of thread against that fabric, chart calls for 40ct... we can order that for you... 32 is a little less scary to see!

With the Needle #1 and #2 from Lila's Studio Needle #1 and #2
This is an interesting pair of designs. #1 (shown at the top of our image at right) was released in 2012, #2 in 2019. They are basically the SAME piece... only #2 is her *Re-Do! with additions.* The verse is a quote from John Taylor in 1634 talking about all the flora and fauna... and how the needle can shape and wrought it all. The borders on each are charming and colorful... and the three or four little scenes in the boxes above the verses are delightful!

I honestly don't know which version I like better! #1 Is smaller - measures 20 x 9 on 32ct, and is coded for 24 DMC flosses. With The Needle #2 is larger - it finishes 11-1/2 x 26-1/2 on 32ct. It is coded for 8 DMC colors and 21 Classic Colorworks hand-dyeds - with no DMC conversions. Even if you don't stitch the entire sampler or samplers... those little square scenes would make fun pin cushions!
