A whimsical selection of assorted designs... Patti looks at life with a positive attitude, and wants you to, too!!! Many, many designs in her portfolio... I have a few of my favorites pictured here!

Over the Hill COW from SamSarah Design Studio
Over The Hills from SamSarah Design Studio
I couldn't pass these up in Patti's suite at the recent Needlework Galleria show we attended in St Charles MO. They were released as part of her Over The Hill series (see the little checkerboarded hills on them?) All presented as small charts with button embellishments, each is stitched on Weeks Dye Works 20ct Blue Jeans hand-dyed linen, and finish about 8 x 8. They call for Watercolors thread - which is a heavier pearl-cotton thread suitable for that 20ct.

If you want to make these smaller on 30 or 35ct linen, you can match the called-for DMC threads to weeks hand-dyed flosses easily. On 36ct, these will all finish about 4 x 4! (Get the patterns and then decide which way to stitch them.) Cute and cheerful, they make you smile!

Heard it Through The Grapevine, part 1 from SamSarah Design Studio
Heard it Through The Grapevine
This is a cheerful hearts and dots thing all swirled together -- stitched on 32ct Charlotte's Pink Linen by Weeks. (don't get hung up on pink... you can change that if you need to!)

Presented in only 3 parts with no embellishments, you can always add as you want to, but this is fine just the way it is. Stitch the alphabet letters or make up a message of your own to spell in here! The entire design finishes approx 18 x 7.

Heard it Through The Grapevine from SamSarah Design Studio Be aware that each portion CAN stand alone if you aren't doing the whole alphabet... so don't feel like you have to buy all three of these to get the full charm and impact of the design! We're doing an auto-ship for charts two and three -- in case you want them all.

Halloween Party from SamSarah Design Studio Halloween Party
Sam Sarah has a couple of colorful new designs that are small enough for pretty pin cushions!!!!! Offered as charts with a few button embellishments, what I love best are the colors in both! Patti shows these finished with large frames and a huge quilted finish... but really, they are small designs, and they would be CHARMING finished just as little cushion pillows with some bumpy ball fringe trim or tassels, or something like that. You can get by with 9 x 9 cuts of the Peoria Purple in either 30 or 32ct for either, and there is virtually no difference in seeing the 30 vs 32ct.

Halloween Happy is stitched on Week's (30 or 32ct) Peoria Purple Linen with 5 shades of DMC or hand-dyeds. It finishes just under 5 inches square. Can you see the buttons? Stars in the background, the bat on the ghost arm and heart on the cat.

Vote from SamSarah Design Studio Indivisible from SamSarah Design Studio I Pledge Allegiance from SamSarah Design Studio
Vote * Indivisible * I Pledge Allegiance
Sam Sarah has three designs that are very timely and I thought these would present well together! All offered as charts, each comes with a small button or two. How about a bowl of Political Pin Cushions??? Choose some Lady Dot Creates Union, Sizzle, Vintage, Snow or Vanilla Ball Fringe or chenille to trim these -- get the trim and then match your hand-dyed threads for the set!
  • VOTE -- 30Ct Havana Weeks Linen, this fits into a 4-inch tart tin you can find in a kitchen store -- and will make a cute round cushion as well. Can you see from the pic how Patti stitched the hand-dyeds in the squares in a square rotation -- so that she didn't have horizontal shaded lines in this? She wanted the shading to follow the square shape. Chart comes with a small red heart button.
  • Indivisible -- Weeks 30ct Light Khaki Linen, this one finishes approx 3 x 7. The chart includes three bitty buttons.
  • I Pledge Allegiance -- Stitched on Week's Dye Works 30ct Periwinkle Linen with over-dyed flosses, there are 5 star buttons included with the chart. Finishes approx 6 x 3-1/2.

Over the Hill Patriot from SamSarah Design Studio Over the Hill - Patriot
Sam Sarah Studio is beginning a new set of designs that she is presenting in chart format with a small packet of button embellishments. Named 'Over the Hill' because each as a 'hill' shape near the bottom of the design, she is presenting them on Weeks 20ct Blue Jeans Linen and stitching them with hand-dyed Caron Collection Watercolors thread. They finish approx 8 x 8 if you choose the large count fabric.

NOW... you CAN stitch these with regular DMC floss, or find some pretty hand-dyed flosses already in your stash... and choose Week's 30ct linen of the same colors to make them smaller (5 x 5-ish.)

The larger version uses the same scroll hanging hardware that her Something Wicked Mystery Sampler used -- so if you have that already, take if off your Halloween piece and use it for these. If you opt for the smaller linen, maybe a stand-up cube for finishing???

Anyway, Watercolors, Linen and Charts are all offered separately, so you can choose options.

Ten X the Fun - 1 of 10 from SamSarah Design Studio Ten X the Fun - Easter Bunny's Carrot Farm 7 of 10 from SamSarah Design Studio
Ten X the Fun!
Oh.... more fun panels for your Sam Sarah Perpetual Calendar... or use these just by themselves for the fun of it! You'll recognize the stand and backing cards that Patti used in her calendar series... (You could even use the backsides of the 50 cards you already have!) This is series of 10 leaflets is now complete. The first to release was a set of 5 Halloween Hats. Stuff 'em, make ornaments, stitch them on one piece of fabric -- anything you want! Worked in Weeks Dye Works flosses, each measures only about 2-1/2 x 3 or 4 inches in size.

Happy Celebration!
Here's a cute set of cupcakes to celebrate whatever you need them to! The final installment in Sam Sarah's 10 X The Fun Series... these have all featured the perpetual calendar frame and finishing cards that Patti used this earlier this past year. We can send more cards if you like, and since these are shown on 14ct brown Perforated Paper, we can send more of that, too, if you need it (two 9 x 12 sheets per package). You decide!

Grow Up!
COLOR, and more color, this is stitched on 30ct linen in Crescent and Week's flosses.

Finishing approx 6 x 11, it's cute with or without the pink and white button garnishes.

Happy Easter Bunny from SamSarah Design Studio - click for more

Happy Easter (Or Birthday) Bunny
This little guy is busy gathering festive eggs for his basket and ignoring his carrot garden! Stitched on Week's 30ct Grasshopper Linen with Week's overdyed flosses, he finishes a whopping 6 x 11.

The button embellishments trim the flower centers and those bitty carrots.

Three Carrots from SamSarah Design Studio - click to see more Three Carrots
Here's a trio of plump carrots dressed up for the Spring! Fun geometric patterns inside the carrots, the button garnishes add quite the festive touch. What is interesting, however, is the finishing. NOTHING fancy, but how eye catching! Each linen piece is simply turned under, than tacked onto a piece of Weeks Dye Works wool -- and crooked at that!

What a fun way to address these! You can make funky little doorknob hangers all over the place! Each carrot measures approx 40 x 69 stitches -- so fabric choice determines final size! Get creative and make 24... Karots!

Treasure Me! from Sam Sarah -- click to see lots more Treasure Me!
Oh my gosh... is this the cutest birth announcement??? Something so 'little boy' that can hang in his room for years and years!!! Your little pirate is stitched in overdyeds on 28ct linen, and finishes approx 6 x 6.

There are alphabet letters and numbers included for your personalization... and we have the darling set of button embellishments as well. You get a sailboat, dragonfly, buzzard, and some gold coins -- the pirates bounty! Offered as a leaflet with claypack.
