Seeds of Love from Heartstring Samplery

Seeds of Love
Just a sweet pattern that measures about 4 x 4... it's stitched with a few Weeks hand-dyed cottons.

I like the finishing trim - it's rik-rak that is glued to the inside edges of the frame!

Spring Flame Pincushion from Heartstring Samplery - click for more Spring Flame Pincushion
Bright colors on this neat Bargello piece... Weeks Cattail, Dove, Blue Spruce, Monkey Grass, Grasshopper, Lichen, Busy Lizzie, Dahlia, Teal Frost, Maple Syrup and Ohio Lemon Pie, this is trimmed with Sea Glass mini ball fringe by Dames of the Needle.

Offered as a chart, it measures just 115 x 65 in stitch count. Offered as a chart.

Springtime Springtime Pin Drum
Springtime Pin Drum - A rotund little stand-up cushion, we can't really see all the sides on this, but I think tulips go all the way around. *Bloesem* is the word I see spelled across the top... maybe the chart mentions something about that inside?

It's only 3 x 10 on 36ct, and uses Weeks hand-dyeds of Bluecoat Red, Clockwork, Concord, Curry, Grasshopper, Oscar, Parchment, Red rocks, Sanguine and Teal Frost.

The Stitching Life Sampler from Heartstring Samplery - click for more Stitch or Die Pincushion from Heartstring Samplery - click for more
The Stitching Life, Coffee Drinker's Confession & Stitch or Die Pincushion
  • The Stitching Life Sampler's verse reads that *I could use a little more stitching in my life!* It has a tiny pair of scissors in there, beside a threaded needle. It measures 150 x 223 - so quite big actually - 10 x 14 on 32ct!
  • Stitch or Die Pincushion - Don't take that the wrong way!!! :) Finishes a little under 4 x 5 on 32ct... just a fun cushion to tuck into your bowl of smalls!

Sweet Lovers Love the Spring from Heartstring Samplery - click for more Sweet Lovers Love the Spring
A smidgen of a quote from Shakespeare, this is worked on Week's 40ct Angel Hair linen with Corn Husk, Copper, Brandy, Woodrose and Apple Cider hand-dyed flosses.

There is a matching fob that is stitched and covering a silver dollar piece. It is finished as a pin cushion on the chart cover.

Sweet Summer Pin Square from Heartstring Samplery - click for more
Sweet Summer Pin Square
Sweet Summer Pin Square -- This is finished as a little 3 x 3 pin mattress! The neat sampler edging is really a scrap of fabric... do you have a SKINNY border design you like?

Stitch IT and make it the mattress border!

Three Little Proverbs from Heartstring Samplery - click for more Three Little Proverbs
Heartstring Samplery has a trio of small samplers that actually would look great all framed and displayed together -- but just fine all by themselves, too! (time is always a factor!)
  • *For wisdom is better than rubies and all desires cannot compare to her* measures 179 x 86 stitches.
  • *A gentle answer turns away wrath but a harsh word stirs up anger.* measures 65 x 160 stitches.
  • *A friend loveth at all times and a brother is born for adversity.* finishes 90 x 165.
  • Everything is worked in just 8 colors of Sampler Threads -- Mulberry, Tarnished Gold, Cidermill Brown, Woodrose, Bayberry, Caramel Corn, Endive and Pecan Pie... and all three are offered in the chart pack.

    The Wedding Sampler from Heartstring Samplery - click for more Wedding Sampler
    The Wedding Sampler - Lots of repeating motifs in this busy and happy Marriage sampler. The little tiny farmhouse is surrounded by so much love! The border moves back and forth, the roses are sprouting out of the pots - like 10 children!

    Those evergreens in the yard are so even and calming, but then there is all that commotion going on in the yard... it's John and Zella's homestead! Stitched on 36ct linen, this will finish a generous 14 x 16, and it uses A LOT of thread! (at least 6 skeins for that busy yard of grass.)

    WIP It Good from Heartstring Samplery - click for more You Make My Heart Happy from Heartstring Samplery - click for more You Make My Heart Happy and WIP It Good
    • You Make My Heart Happy - Heartstrings Samplery has a new release - a 6 x 10 sampler full of her favorite things - houses, birds, flowers, her Farmboy's initials, her cup of coffee and her stitching scissors! Stitched on 32ct Picture This Plus fabric with Weeks hand-dyed cottons, you can add what ever else makes you happy, as long as you can chart it.

    • WIP It Good - This measures 117 stitches square and is stitch with Weeks dye Works Grits thread on 32ct Weeks Dove colored linen. She's put little scissors and threaded needles in here - to signify the WIPs of the 2020s - your Works in Progress. Might be an area you'd want to personalize or something. If you put this over one on 25ct Lugana (something most everyone can see), it'd make a pretty biscornu. Put a gorgeous button in that center area, it'd be less than 5 inches and finish into a pretty cushion.

    Ye Old Noel from Heartstring Samplery
    Ye Old Noel
    Beth's late 1800's sampler is unmarked, undated, and missing a lot of stitches, not to mention its strange color scheme! It's disorganized and she loved the jumble of motifs squished together. So, she's reworked the colors, filled in a few missing stitches and added the word NOEL to give it a second chance at life! The pictures are bitty, but the urns of flowers and the 4 different borders are lovely. You could even do just that NOEL motif as a small pin cushion. Measuring 153 x 127, the whole piece finishes a beautifully petite 8-1/2 x 7 - a tiny Holiday surprise! DMC conversions are included but this is charted for Weeks and classic hand-dyed flosses.

    The HF 1837 Sampler from Heartstring Samplery Perry Hoop,
    Beth has been BUSY!
    • The HF 1837 Sampler - Beth says this gorgeous sampler features an intricate floral wreath, some lovely alphabets, two monograms representing Jesus and Mary as well as a fantastic lobster! Mmm, it'll be fun to see the design when i finally arrives next week! Finishes a generous 11 x 15 on 40ct!
    • Perry Pryor - Beth tells us there is strong evidence that this charming and primitive sampler was stitched in the 1830's by a boy. It features two large deer, a tree, some playful bands and a sweet saying. *Perry Pryor is my name, and with my needle I work the same, that everyone may plainly see what care my parents take of me* It finishes about 6 x 12 on 36ct.
    • Hoop, There it is - Beth's sequel to her previously released WIP it Good Piece! Choose whatever colors you want to work with - it uses only one color of thread. Actually the repetitive design is really cute. It features two little stitching chairs facing each other, a bird perched atop one of them with a needle and thread in his beak, and there are scissors and spools forming the corner designs.
    • Tudor Rose Biscornu - Beth's 5th floral biscornu-shaped pin cushion... it finishes towards a generous 4-inches in size, and features stitching on both the top and bottom.
    The Mary Pearson Sampler

    The Mary Pearson Sampler
    Beth reproduced this for the Sandy UT Historical Society Museum. She has 4 pictures in here of actual areas of the original piece that are 'very strange indeed.' She has included LOTS of instructions, and lots of thoughts on how stitches were executed in the original.

    Fun reading, there are 25 pages of the chart in here... and one-over-one detail, so probably not for a beginning stitcher to tackle. Charted for DMC floss, the book is a treat to look through... stitch count is 262 x 427.

    The Bird Collection from Heartstring Samplery - click for more The Bird Collection
    Goldfinch, Grosbeaks, and Mourning Doves... just three modest cushion designs that finish 4 x 5-ish.

    Each is stitched with soft and faded Gentle Art Sampler Threads.

    Ann Taylor from Heartstring Samplery - click for more Remember Me from Heartstring Samplery - click for more
    Ann Taylor and Remember Me
    • Ann Taylor -- A traditional sampler -- lots of angles in the flowers and border... the bottom section is actually another piece of linen -- in a different color -- you patchwork it on there -- as a stitcher would have done years ago, because she didn't have enough fabric to finish her piece! 190 x 290 Stitch count -- the colors are DMC, 300, 356, 420, 680, 3011 and 3052. I think I'd change them a little -- less orange.
    • Remember Me -- VERY reminiscent of a 17th Century English Band Sampler, this is worked all in cross stitch -- no double running or queen stitches! The verse is nagging all to remember her when her bones are rotten in the grave!

    Anne Franks 1825 Sampler from Heartstring Samplery - click for more Anne M Franks 1825 Sampler
    Wow... this is a pretty piece... very unique as far as antique sampler designs goes. It is a pair of floral wreaths gently curving around the verse which reads: With all thy soul Love God above, And as thyself Thy neighbor love.

    Beth considers this an *Antique Sampler Reproduction* rather than a *Faithfully Reproduced Antique Sampler* because she didn't chart it for the originally un-even woven linen, and faced challenges matching the original colors. It is lovely, though... one of her favorite pieces! Offered as a chart.

    Charlotte Ash 1827 from Heartstring Samplery
    Heartstring Samplery's Beth Twist has sent new charts. Charlotte Ash 1827 - Quite an old little sampler in Beth's collection, it was stitched using wools, silks and cottons.

    You see the bleeding from the black threads in her pic of the original. Pretty border, bold basket of flowers and seashells!

    Dressmaker's Sewing Kit from Heartstring Samplery
    Dressmaker's Sewing Kit This is a set of three pieces - motifs taken from a larger unfinished antique sampler in Beth's collection: a sewing tray, needle book and drum pin cushion.

    The little girl who stitched the original sampler 'might have made' these pieces for her sewing kit based on the motifs in her sampler. Beth talks about finishing techniques in here... and color changes... if you want!

    Feniscowles Hall 1834 from Heartstring Samplery - click for more Feniscowles Hall 1834
    (Oh, change that name!!!) This would make a neat anniversary sampler!!!
    We were more precious each to each than any other thing. Add names and wedding date... you could even turn this into a family recording.

    There is quite a mansion on here... and the yard is stunning... it finishes approx 16 x 11-1/2. There's an alphabet for personalization -- make sure to get plenty of thread in the same dye lots before you begin this!!!

    Fruit Basket Pendant from Heartstring Samplery - click for more
    Fruit Basket Pendant
    Another cool way to finish a stitching project, this is a traditional fruit basket design that is stitched with one strand of Weeks hand-dyed floss over one square of 32ct silk gauze. Actually easier to see than 32ct linen, you are making a whole cross stitch, and filling in the background with black. Then, the tiny 1 x 1-1/2 inch oval bit of needlework is mounted into a wooden cut-out pendant/frame/ornament piece.

    Just 45 x 67 in stitch count... I think this would make a really pretty ornament addition to your tree! Kit includes chart, gauze, threads, backing felt and hanging ribbon, wooden piece and instructions for assembly.

    Harvest Sampler from Heartstring Samplery - click for more
    Harvest Sampler
    Harvest Sampler -- There are turkeys on this!

    Give thanks aloud to God, to God the Heavenly King, and let the spacious earth his works and glories sing. With a grateful heart

    IL 1817 from Heartstring Samplery - click for more IL 1817
    Oh, better buy enough floss for this little guy! Stitched on Week's 40ct straw linen, this has a stitch count of 349 x 249, so will finish approx 17-1/2 x 12-1/2 in size. Beth took two years to get his charted and chose DMC flosses because she didn't want the hand-dyed varigation effects. The original sampler is faded, but not streaked like hand-dyeds would have given you.

    A pastoral farm scene... lots of animals everywhere... the border is gorgeous and lush... but, wow... there is a lot of solid stitching in here! Offered as a chart.

    Really Mercy Five
    • Really Friends - Another release of a previous exclusive design, inspired by Jane Austin - it measures approx 7-1/2 x 11 on 32ct. The bottom band looks really charming with the castle and carriage on it, but we'll know more when the patterns are in our hands! Available in a chart format.
    • Mercy Megginson 1849 - Beth describes this as a 'bright and cheerful' piece: Mercy was 11 when she stitched it, and it finishes approx 10 x 12 on 32ct. Chart includes lots of genealogical research into her life story - which always makes the stitch more fun and the finished piece more special. Weeks and Classic Flosses, 32ct Fox and Rabbit Hogbristle.
    • Five Songbirds - An adaptation of part of Mercy Megginson's sampler- I see Adam and Eve on there, so I think it's part of the bottom area. Good colors, cute trims... Same fabric as the main sampler.

    Precious Littles from Heartstring Samplery - click for more
  • Precious Littles - A set of 5 pin-cushion-sized little bits...

  • Let it Begin With Me from Heartstring Samplery - click for more

    Let it Begin With Me
    A bitty pin cushion-sized design, the measures only 59 x 77 in stitch count, so over one on 28ct it's only 2 x 3-ish!

    Pretty hand-dyeds, just a simple design... you could do Satins on the sawtooth border!

    Susan Scott 1734 English Sampler from Gentle Pursuit Designs Autumn Sampler Compendium by Gentle Pursuit Designs Autumn Sampler Compendium and Susan Scott 1734 English Sampler
    from Gentle Pursuit Designs
    Two new samplers have arrived... beautiful booklet charts - 9 and 24 pages respectively - both clearly charted.

    from Stacy Nash
    Another cute chicken, this finishes 8 x 13 on 35ct Confederate Gray linen.

    A lot of stitching in that house... save that part for a time when you don't want to have your chart with you to keep up with -- just mindless, relaxing repetitive stitching!!!

    from Stacy Nash
    Three more delights - all with different finishing treatments...
    Sister Sampler Pinkeep - This one is stitched on two different colors of linen - and then joined into one cushion. Cornsilk on the left, Straw on the right... see what you have in your stash for this. Pretty Weeks hand-dyed flosses - this features delightful floral urns and flowers... check out the bird in the next and the beehive! Finishes a huge 15 x 6!

    Liberty Sewing Pouch - 36 Weeks hand-dyed Parchment Linen with Weeks flosses, this measures about 6-1/2 x 9 - primitive in design and construction.

    1806 Manor House Sewing Roll - This is very pretty! Put your closure ribbon at either end - depending on what you want to show when this is rolled up. (But maybe you want to display it open like in the pic? Finished size is 7-1/2 x 15... I like all the design elements she's featured!

    Stacy Nash Sisters Three Pinkeep -- click to see more Sisters Three Pinkeep
    from Stacy Nash
    Here's a sweet piece -- finished into a small pin cushion pillow. Stitch count is 51 x 64, making it finish approx 3 x 4 on 32ct. With the bit of homespun finishing fabric, the overall pillow will be 4 x 6-ish.

    Worked in Gentle Art's Brethren Blue, Straw Bonnet and Apple Cider, it will make a nice addition to your basket of stuffed cushions! (Note: the stitch count and finished size is mis-quoted on the instructions... be advised when you cut your fabric. Doesn't hurt the design... just confuses you a bit!)

    Stacy Nash Thistles & Spells Pinkeep -- click to see more Thistles & Spells Pinkeep
    from Stacy Nash
    Another eerie graveyard scene this design finishes approx 8 x 9 on 32ct Tin Roof. Huge for a pin keep, small for a pillow.

    It really coordinates with the Potions, Mourning tree and Pumpkin Harvest piece.

    Stacy Nash Turkey Hollow Farm -- click to see more Turkey Hollow Farm - Part of the Houses of Berry's Chapel Road
    from Stacy Nash
    Another fun farmhouse scene by Stacy, this features an un-even border of Autumn flowers -- with a spindly vine on the left side. You have pumpkins still growing in the garden, but the farmer and his dog might be coming to check on the excited turkeys and leaving the pumpkins alone.

    Finishing approx 13 x 10-1/2 on 36ct Weeks Beige Linen, this calls for Weeks threads of Gunmetal, Palomino, Twilight, Hazelnut, Tiger's Eye, Schneckley, Dolphin, Havana, Straw, Loden and Whiskey. When you stitch the house, work the front in horizontal lines of the Whiskey -- then do the side -- that way your thread variations will form the corner of the building.

    Stacy Nash Cat & Mouse Pinkeeps & Slipper -- click to see more Cat & Mouse Pinkeeps & Slipper
    from Stacy Nash
    Stacy Nash has a few new designs, the finishing on this one is fun and different. Worked on week's 30ct Cocoa linen in only 4 shades of floss, the main cat pillow measures approx 6 x 8, the pinkeep is 3-1/2 inches square and the cute little slipper is only 1-1/2 x 5-1/2!

    It's a cute set... and if you do nothing else... LOVE that little slipper... and finish some other designs that way! What a fun piece to tuck into a basket of finished pin cushions!

    One of 2 new designs... She seeketh wool and flax and worketh willingly with her hands. From Proverbs, this is one of the characteristics of the virtuous woman.

    Finishing about 10 x 23 on 32 ct, with Gentle Arts fibers... Stacy made hers into a pocket roll, but it looks very worthy of a frame, too. Stacy even gives instructions for aging the fabric to make it look even more antique.

    Freedom Needle Book -- click to see more Freedom Needle Book
    Wow... I love that shallow bowl with the berry vines spilling out from it! Add a blowing flag and a noisy crow... very classic!

    You'll want some neat wools for the slipper and berry finishing - Stacy uses homespun cotton for the top of the drum.

    Hooray for the Red, White & Blue from Praiseworthy Stitches - click for more
    Rooks' Feast
    This is a tribute to Autumn, and the garden harvest... as favored by the Rook!!! Kind of a Quaker feel to this... the Pumpkin square says *Pompion* which is the colonial word for pumpkin!

    The squash, corn and pumpkins are all Mr Rook's absolute favorites... and they fit into this 7 x 6 piece stitched on Weeks 30ct Cocoa Linen.

I have some of the inside pictures when you click through the images. Isabelle printed a sticker-sheet of tiny vintage images - so you can decorate your pages and dates a little. This would make a lovely stitcher-friend gift - but get one for YOU too!

The names are spelled out in alphabet buttons... these are wood with paper letters, but Just Another Button Company has letter 'tiles' almost like Scrabble letters. They look great on these stockings, 4 different colors... we special order your name's letters. Pattern suggests 2 inches of fabric around design -- a little easier on Santa's budget! Whooo has 4 tiny black buttons in those eyes... big beads will work as well.

    Surrey House Sampler from Rosewood Manor - click for more Surrey House Sampler
    What a pretty antique-y-feeling piece! A delicate floral basket beneath a very Victorian alphabet... the fabric is of special note with this piece. See the 'wallpaper lines' in the background???

    Peace on Earth from Dames of the Needle - click for more Peace on Earth
    Dames of the Needle has a new miniature hornbook ornament that finishes a mere 2-1/2 x 2-3/4. Both sides of the little paddle are stitched, and garnished with Just Another Button Company buttons... very simple and cute!

    Although the hornbook is technically supposed to be displayed with the handle downwards... where one would hold it... to avoid having to drill holes in your paddle piece... you could always 'adapt' and hang it on the tree from the top hole in the handle! (We won't send the Cross Stitch Police after you!) Offered as the chart, stitched on 32ct linen in overdyeds... linen, hornbook and buttons (8 stars and 1 sheep) all available separately.

    Deer Hornbook and Scissor Case from Dames of the Needle - click for more Deer Hornbook and Scissor Case
    Elizabeth Ann Talledo has another cute little hornbook just like her Maryland Sampler and Christmas Peace on Earth pieces. The cute little wooden paddle is decorated with stitching on one side (while the other two have both sides of the paddle decorated) and this design features a matching needle case. Stitched on 32ct with Sampler Threads, there is a bit of over-one stitching and Nun's and Blanket stitches garnishing the edges.

    Cute and quick, offered as a chart with hornbook separate. (Note: the paddle in this pic is not available... we have the same paddles available that are featured on the Maryland and Christmas pieces -- they'll all match!)

    Getting Old Sucks from Raise the Roof -- click to see a larger view Getting Old Sucks
    BUT, pass me of piece of cake anyway! Lots of stitching in this one to commemorate a special birthday, but then again... there might be a lot of birthdays to commemorate!

    Offered as the chart, this finishes approx 7 x 8 on 32ct and is stitched in overdyeds. Little confetti buttons decorate the cake, and I think the candle flames would be fun stitched in metallic!

    Embroidery Christmas from Nikyscreations - click to see more
    Embroidery Christmas
    Nikki-from-Italy has a darling new little piece - a 100-stitch square of Christmas motifs with a stitching theme. Choose any fabric you like - on 40 over 2 this will finish 5 x 5 - and 7 x 7 on 14.

    Coded for DMC floss, (she has 18 colors called for) there are small scissors, a spool, and a needle on here... what I see are lots of tiny options for some mini pin-cushions to make a set. She has finished this on the front of a stitching pouch - another really nice idea to show this off, and make it useful at the same time!

    Be Friend from Nikyscreations
    Be Friend
    This is so sweet... I'm not sure the title translation happened correctly... but who cares?! Two friends, two houses, the basket of flowers and all the rabbits, it's just cheery.

    Presetned as the chart, finishes approx 7 inches on 14/28, it is coded for DMC floss.

    Leaves from Nikyscreations
    • Leaves - A 7 x 8 piece stitched with DMC floss, the house in the center has a filled-in background -- making it a little picture in the center of the busy birds and vines surrounding it. What makes it fun are the wool acorn cut-outs Niky has added to the left side as part of her finishing treatment. Super-simple, yet they add texture and an additional focal point. Leaves is shown finished as a pocket... but it'd be cute as a pin cushion too - and you could do more acorns on the back if you wanted to.

    Blooming Scissor Fobs from Nikyscreations Blooming Scissor Fobs
    These are sweet, dinky little things! Just 1 x 2-ish, they feature backgrounds that are solidly stitched.

    All matching floral baskets -- they'll make great 'bowl-fillers' for something petite -- like the metal soap dish in the pic!

    Stitching Sampler from Nikyscreations New Samplers
    from Nikyscreations
    Stitching Sampler - This one finishes approx 6 x 6, calls for DMC and reads; *Any day spent sewing is a good day.*

    Tiny scissors, threaded needles and spools, it'd make a cute needle case and fob set I think -- if you can finish a little creatively!

    Seasonal Band Sampler from Nikyscreations Seasonal Band Sampler
    Kind of a fun design composition .. . the four seasonal houses all stacked up... the balanced motifs on either side... and the little thin bottom borders.

    This calls for only 8 colors of DMC! 372, 523, 3864, 3860, 3781, 3045, 3046, and 318. Very pretty, it is offered as a chart.

    Black Sheep Sampler from Little by Little - click to see more Black Sheep Sampler
    I have always liked this design! Not sure what most of it means... but I think the ship and sailboats are neat, the whale, the ducks playing Indians! There is the black sheep up there -- the subject of the verse -- and the couple inside that stone house, the path and that tree on the island.

    Maybe it's a good conversation piece on its own! Offered as the chart, it finishes approx 8 x 9 on a 35ct. DMC floss coded.

    The Birthday Gift from Little by Little - click to see more The Birthday Gift
    This is lovely! Stitch just the vase and flowers, or the verse, too. There is a partial note in here about Birthday being intentionally mispelled as Brithday... but that thought isn't finished! A mystery!
