Arabian Nights Band Sampler (#23)
This sampler was inspired by embroidery on clothing worn in the Middle East. Instead of designing the bands
horizontally, I left them vertically as most of them are used that way. This sampler was stitched in two version, one on black
Jubilee with red and gold Splendor silks, the other on Light Exemplar linen from Lakeside Linen with burgundy and dark olive
green Splendors. You can choose whichever version you like best.
Doves wedding sampler (#24)
This wedding sampler is similar in style to the Christmas Reindeer sampler. Eight doves hold hearts between them and
are surrounded by tulips. In the middle is room for the names of the happy couple and the wedding date and year(s). I designed
this to commemorate my parentsī 40th anniversary.
Happy Easter Needleroll (#25)
Though the original is in Dutch, this needleroll is charted for a Happy Easter as well. Itīs a quick stitch and you may
get it done in time for Easter.
Greek Island Band Sampler (#27)
When my brother graduated from high school my parents took us to Greece for four weeks. We had a marvellous time and I
just loved the country and the people. We didnīt find any needleworkshop but saw several antique household linens from various
Greek Islands in musea. This sampler is inspired by those motifs and the colors were chosen with the original linens in mind.
You will stitch it on 32 count antique white Belfast with Sampler Threads.
Autumn Sewing Roll (#28)
The first kit we put out and we had a lot of fun working on it. This kit is stitched on 32ct Tumbletweed linen from Wichelt
with Venus cotton threads and Gloriana overdyed silks. Instructions for finishing the sewing roll are included.

If you are one of those stitchers who tells herself to start stitching ornament earlier every year (I know this so well
LOL), this ornament might come to the rescue. It is a quick and fun stitch, with 2 colors of Weeks Dye Works, a Kreinik #4
braid and Mill Hill beads. Finishing is easy and instructions are included.
NOEL sampler (#30)
Inspired by beautifully adorned letters on antique Dutch samplers, this Christmas sampler is stitched with 2 colors of
Weeks Dye Works and 2 Kreinik #4 braids. The sparkle from the metallic threads will get you in the Christmas spirit.
