Satins, Herringbones, Captured Smyrna, Intricate Rice Variations, Triple Crossed Scotch, are some of the rest. In reading Tina's dedication at the beginning of the instructions... I realize that you need to hear a bit of her words... Being a mountain girl at heart, she needed to soul search a little to do this piece. She talks about 'how many women throughout time have sent their dearest ones across its fickle waters (the sea) clinging to the hope that they might meet again. I thought about women sending husbands, fathers, and sons away in ships and about mothers sending beloved children off forever to live in new lands. I did not come from sea-faring folk, but the ocean changed the lives of my grandparents -- and thus myself.' She goes on to talk about her sons going off to school in different cities, and how involved and busy they become -- away from Mom at home. She finishes with this: 'And I don't think I am so very different from all the women, as I patiently wait for each little ship to sail calmly back to my harbor.'

REAL, real cute!

Our little trickster has her 'doggy-sheep' in tow... all decked out for an evening of merriment. She steps past the gardens and pumpkin patches, carefully avoiding that all-too-scary graveyard down at the bottom!

The idea with this piece, is to personalize, dedicate and celebrate your family.

Lovely.

Anyway, a few special stitches... actually, quite a fun, quick piece! There is a mini scissor fob kit, designed to compliment the 2007 Gingher Glory Scissors... it features a version of this same little guy... brighter in color!

The Gatherers - During the 1990s, Bush designed a series of 4 Gatherers. Four colorful, detailed pieces... they seemed to be giant extensions of the smaller designs they were also publishing. Sort of the 'corner-stones' if you will. Exquisite dress, borders, and companion sheep and gardens... each is prettier than the last! Herb Gatherer came first... a mauve/lavender summer garden piece. Next was Wool Gatherer... a companion in blue, teal, and taupe colors. He carries a pack full of real wool roving on his back! Now, I don't remember my history well, because I THINK Toy came next. The Christmas version... Toy Gatherer is full of rich burgundys and deep greens. Finally, we were treated to The Earthgatherers. A springtime, pastoral scene... like all the rest, it features the backstitched background of light taupe, suggesting the setting for its Gatherer. All offered as charts with embellishments, each lots of SB charm! Herb Gatherer (1990) measures approx 13 x 13, mat is arched, hand-carved and huge! Wool Gatherer (1991) measures the same size, same awesome triple, hand-carved mat treatment, only blues instead of mauves. Toy (1992) measures approx 10 x 8. Triple, handcarved and arched mat features hand-painting as well, and is also huge! Earthgatherers (1996) measures approx 12 x 18, and its mat features 4 layers, hand-carving and hand-painting!
