NEW! Place des Vosges and Amber Ocean Lights!
“I designed a large sampler which honors the generations of women who came before us, and leaves space for the ones which will come after us....
I found out by my father’s genealogy research that all of the women in our family have had a "thing" with flowers/plants/herbs...some were gardeners at their farmhouses, one was a midwife well known for her various plant remedies - later generations had a garden for
So it was an idea to have a sampler which shows the heritage of women back into time - each of us deals with plants, loves flowers and their variety -- and a garden
What you can see here … is a sampler which will be as big as YOU will want it - be it that you will work it for three + one future generation, or without, or for more then three -- it is
versatile [and] changeable to your needs.
Once you [have] finished this very special sampler you will have a piece of family history to hand to coming generations so they can include their names even, if you leave one or more “free lines”…..
The threads used can be variegated silks but as well the DMC conversions I will give. One or two
metallics -- and a few beads.. etc. You know what I love to use.”
