This sampler was a joy to stitch. The variety of stitches, patterns and my stash of threads kept me motivated. I stitched with 6 ply floss, perle cotton #5 and #8, and wool threads which gives a lovely texture to the piece.
I finished this piece like a quilt with a thin layer of batting, cotton backing and binding. It makes me smile every time I walk by it.
The pattern, Drawing Stitches is from Rebecca Ringquist at Drop Cloth Samplers.
Beautiful work Marci! So good to hear from you!
Love it! I’ve been wanting to do one of those samplers of hers for a long time. Would be a great traveling craft. Thanks.
Thanks Lynda. Yes, her samplers are the perfect size to take traveling. This one is a 9″ x 12″.
