This morning I put the last stitch in "Speak Kindly". So off to the framer tomorrow. I've enjoyed working on this series and hope you have enjoyed stitching it too.
I've had a few e-mails regarding how to stitch these as one...
When I designed them, I wanted each sampler to be 58 X 58 stitches. If you choose to stitch them as one, you could stitch them horizontally and separate each sampler with about 10 to 20 stitches depending on your preference. You could also leave off the individual borders and stitch one border around all four. I kind of like the look of the individual borders. They were designed so the colors would alternate using piney woods and peacoat.
You can also stiched them vertically for a different look.
So what's next... Several years ago, I published a design called,
"Home is Where You Hang Your Needlework" which was very popular. I still have people ask me where to find that design. It's still out there in a few shops. I've also seen it on the web. My new design is similiar to it, just a bit updated and a of course a new "saying". It will probably be released in the late summer. I have an ornament that will be released soon and of course my two reproduction samplers that are in production right now.
It's funny...so many ideas....so little time!
I hope everyone is having a great summer. It is HOT here in Texas and it's only the middle of June. Makes you wonder what the rest of the summer will be like! We are in hurricane territory to I am hoping that we can get away with another summer without a major storm.
