One Stitch at a Time
This is a sewing envelope design that features three panels of stitching along with a small matching fob/cushion piece. Stitched on a 32 or 36 neutral linen, the colors are quite pale - Confederate Gray, Adobe, Dove, Garrison Green and Arrowhead. Kimberly wanted a soft and antiquey look on her 5 x 5 envelope which is trimmed with lady dot's Blue Fescue Velvet and Rainy ribbon.
The cut of wool you see measures 3 x 4 - to help with perspective. Since Kimberly designed this during all the lockdowns... fabric shopping for lining was not an option, but know that you can line your piece with anything else besides the solid you see behind that small wool panel.
*Beautiful things come together one stitch at a time.*
Samplers Not Forgotten has released a new pin cushion design - a pretty heart-shaped floral - stitched in pale rose and moss hand-dyed cottons.
Fully kitted, it is stitched on 36ct Weeks Dye Works hand-dyed linen with Weeks flosses. The featured lace trim and ribbon for the finishing is by Lady Dot. The kit includes the chart, linen, threads, trims, the charm and the backing fabric - which you can get a glimpse of in the background of our pic. What a pretty piece!
One Hundred Hearts
A hundred hearts would be too few to carry all my love for you. Samplers Not Forgotten did this piece for us several years ago as part of our A Little Help From Our Friends Stitching Circle! It is a precious design... I even took home the model and it's been on my dresser ever since (so now I'd better bring it back to the shop!)
Soft colors of Weeks hand-dyed flosses (Pamlico, Jay Bird, Bullfrog, Grasshopper, Aztec Red and Hibiscus) on weeks 32ct Tin Roof hand-dyed linen, it finishes about 5 x 5. The little wool heart on the back holds a small pair of scissors if you want it to, so you'll want to choose wool and cushion trim that matches.
This charming piece finishes about 8 x 9-1/2 on 36ct - it measures 170 x 147. Dove, Dirt Road, Baked Apple, Merlot, Gold, Arrowhead, Endive, Piney Woods, and Carriage Black are the featured hand-dyed threads... I love, love, love that floral basket to the right of the house!
Count that day lost whose low descending sun derives from my hand no worthy action done. What a nice way to remind one not to have a wasted day!
Another gorgeous piece releasing this weekend at Market by Samplers Not Forgotten, this one features a French proverb as the verse (which is also charted in English just in case!). Little by little the bird makes it's nest is the thought - the proverb advises that with patience (or time) and perseverance all goals can be accomplished. Look at those gorgeous florals cascading down the sides... and all those involved dividing bands - aren't they exquisite? That little bird motif in there would make a beautiful little pin cushion all by itself!
Measuring 271 x 351, stitch this on any linen you like - it'll finish approx 15 x 19-1/2 on 36ct. Worked with Weeks flosses, you'll need multiple skeins of Arrowhead, Banana Pudding, Dove, Oilcloth, Caper, Dolphin, Blue Suede, Lily Pad, Whiskey, Gold, Sanguine, and that time and patience it talks about!
The pics look stunning... can't wait to see it!

1726 Garden Pinkeep Kit & Ann Wright's 1726 Pinkeep Drum Kit
I guess 1726 was a busy year for pretty pin keeps! Kimberly Nugent has a pair of kits that include lovely linens and really pretty printed finishing fabrics!
Ann Wright 1726
Here is the main sampler that provided the small design featured on the 1726 Drum... shown here as both the new model and the original sampler. Stitched on 40ct linen, this measures an impressive 9 x 21 inches when finished.
Charted for silks, if you have the matching drum pattern, you can convert to those hand-dyed cottons used. Stitches include Saw Tooth, Satins, Eyelets and Bargello over 4. Absolutely stunning, this is just rows and rows of florals and trees, with a flock of angels at the bottom!
With Needle & Thread Needle Book
Samplers Not Forgotten has a pretty needle book to companion her larger With Needle and Thread Sampler! Choose the same fabric you stitch the main sampler on if you want -- 36ct Weeks Tin Roof Linen. It finishes approx 8 x 9, so when folded in half it'll measure approx 4 x 4.
Picture on the left is the inside of the case, two right pics are the front and back panels. Coded for Weeks flosses of Grits, Honeysuckle, Cappuccino, Charcoal, Jay bird, Bullfrog and Curry, the colors are soft and dusty -- it looks old and charming! Chart format.
Garden Urn Pinkeep
Kim Nugent released such a charming pin cushion at Market last week... it is her limited edition... and it is just lovely. Presented as a kit, she chose 36ct Vintage Pear Lakeside Linen, paired it with an antique-flavored calico backing fabric, and soft hand-dyed Sampler Threads of Old Brick, Pecan Pie, Endive, Brethren Blue, Briar Rose, Heirloom Gold and Mustard Seed.
The stitched area is 3-1/2 x 4... the finished cushion about 4 x 5-1/2. You get the linen, backing fabric, threads, along with a red felt heart to decorate the back, and the trio of mother-pf-pearl buttons garnishing the front. Super soft and pretty colors, this is very nice.
Laundry Room -- Wash * Dry * Fold -- Repeat
Something cute to decorate the walls of your laundry room -- if you have a nice one! (mine is behind my furnace in the basement... so all I'll enjoy is a stitched model in the shop!) Samplers Not Forgotten has released this charming design -- all yummy, faded colors of Gentle Art Sampler Threads -- that finishes approx 11 x 11 on 36ct.
Stitched with Harvest Basket, Barn Grey, Butternut Squash, Liberty, Dungarees, Baby Spinach, Chalk, Picnic Basket, Onyx and Garden Gate, the dusty grays and denims are perfect with the soft yellows of the flowers. Did you notice that the border is made of wooden clothespins? And... this is a much more FUN way to use the stray buttons that come off in the wash, instead of sewing them back on where they came from!
Fourth of July Picnic
Here's a fun piece -- it sports a lot of different little borders and a flower urn that features buttons or stitched flowers -- or both! Just 130 x 100 -- approx 7 x 6 on 36/18ct, this is worked with Sampler Threads of Onyx, Picket Fence, Wheat Fields, Endive, Freedom, dungarees, Cranberry, Linen, heirloom gold and Picnic Basket.
I like the borders and those buttons -- there is a house in the background -- maybe your fabric choice will let that show up a little better. Cute as a door-stop block!!!
With Needle and Thread
What a CHARMING sampler design by Samplers Not Forgotten! My Soul is fed with Needle and Thread. I love everything about this piece!!!!! Presented as a chart, it is for anyone who loves to stitch! Worked on 36ct, it'll finish approx 11-1/2 x 8-1/2. Stitched with Sampler Threads and Classic Colorworks of Lexington Green, Roasted Marshmallow, Garden Gate, Endive, Wheat Fields, Brown Hen, Deep Fennel and Eggshell, the border is different all the way around.
Pretty white flowers, the scissors adorn the right edge while the spools of thread adorn the opposite. Your initials are on here nice and big -- because you are important! The flower urn is pretty just by itself, but so is the little yellow house with the band sampler below! Can you see the special stitches between the rows? There is a thimble on there... and the bottom band is a tape measure!!!!! Then, for a special touch -- choose some pretty antique buttons to embellish here and there... just so pretty!
A quiet, house... what I really like on here is that gorgeous floral vine border. It winds all over the piece and is different all the way around. There are several white flowers in it that you cannot see on the cover pic.
The entire piece finished approx 11 x 10 on 36ct, colors used are: Blackbird, Burnt Orange, Dark Chocolate, Barn Gray, Onyx, Honeycomb, Eggshell and Endive.
By this work You may see My parents love to me. Generous in size, this finishes approx 15 inches square on 40ct. I'm not sure of the meanings of the motifs in here... or why the verse says what it says... but it does have that charming yard down at the bottom, and it's very colorful! Offered as a chart, it's interesting!
This is a charming piece by Samplers Not Forgotten, stitched with Gentle Art Sampler Threads of Onyx, Oatmeal, Picnic Basket, Brandy, Buckeye Scarlet, Endive, Piney Woods, Cottage Blue and Toasted Barley.
On 40ct, it'll finish approx 10 x 7, and features teeny Padded Satins on the birds in the border, and more along the bottom in the green grass. The wild vines and swirly roses are delghtful! A fun little piece offered as a chart.
Even is something is left undone, everyone must take time to sit still and watch the leaves turn. What a fun verse for a fun sampler! The trailing ivy border along the edge, acorns and golden flowers, I especially like the crow perched atop the pumpkin! The neat area of special stitches is kind of cool, too.
Stitched on 32ct, this finishes approx 11 x 12 in size, and is worked with Gentle Art Sampler Threads of Pecan Pie, Garden Gate, Flax, Moss, Autumn Leaves, Brick Path, Gold Leaf and Onyx.
Elizabeth Lamb 1837
What a statement Sampler this is! HUGE on visual impact... with a stitch count of 316 x 341, the design elements and colors in this are bold and organized! Sometimes the verses on old samplers are hard to read because the spelling and punctuation are strange... here goes with this one! On the alone my Hope relies Beneath thy cross I fall thou art my life my sacrifice My Savior and My All don.
I think this would also make a gorgeous family tree piece! This will finish approx 22 inches square on 30ct, and is coded for either silks or DMC. Very striking in design with rich color.
This is a gorgeous little piece... a heavy cross-stitched border surrounding a floral basket -- all in special stitches. The basket/urn is stitched over two threads, and then AGAIN on top of that over 4 threads! The entire floral part is really a line drawing that you use as a guide to fill in the greens and flowers with straight stitches!
Only 4 colors in this, you could choose some hand-dyed to give it even more depth if you like. VERY unusual, the overall stitch count is 105 x 138.
Just a bitty wisp of a thing, this measures only 30 x 35 stitches... and uses just 5 colors.
I think the red ribbon edging really sets it off beautifully! Offered as a chart.
Black Cat Sampler
This is a pretty piece -- the dainty border with all the alphabets and more border motifs at the top... I love, love all the motifs in the bottom half. Can you find the Strawberry Pincushion chart above in here???
Pretty urns and florals... why is that black cat so prominent??? Stitch count of 368 x 347 -- very pretty balance in this one.
Isabill Robb 1803
Such a pretty sampler that our image doesn't come close to doing it justice. This has a stitch count of 447 x 481 -- so on 36ct, for instance, it'll finish approx 25 x 27 -- awesomely huge!
LOTS of delicate design detail in here... great floral borders, some over-one work, lots of elegant floral motifs. Charted for DMC or silk, there are only 11 colors used. Really nice balance, this is offered as a chart.
