American Quaker Sampler stitched by Krista


Tuesday, 4 December 2012


What a stellar group of stitchers Nicola and Jo have accumulated.

I am honored to be part of this group.

I'm sure I will be the absolute last cows tail coming home but I will certainly enjoy being part of this group.

Photo  The lovely Dorothy Walpole will probably be my main focus.  I purchased it  a year or more ago.  I don't think I've taken any more than just a few stitches on it.  I love this one and have been so inspired by the finishes I've seen.
Photo The lovely Jane Atkinson has always been one I would love to tackle - however likely just a dream.  I do have a hooked rug I am working on that has a lot of  influence from the sampler.  that may just have to do . . . .

I could go on and on listing my favorites but I know in reality it would make more sense for me to focus on just Dorothy and hope for the best.

I hope that everyone has a wonderful holiday season filled with all the sights and sounds  you love most.
Cheers from sunny Florida

Welcome Melody, thank you so much for participating.

I think that Dorothy is proving to be the most popular sampler. She is definitely a stunning one.

What fabric do you plan to use?

Hi Melody, My grandmother loved to make samplers and she tried to teach me as a teenager. I wish now I had paid more attention. I look forward to seeing your completed project.

I love these two samplers, they are both fighting for attention in my stash

Nicola - I will have to look up the exact name but I think it was a special hand dyed linen that was provided in the SOM kit. There is also a conversion to overdyed threads. So I am using a mixture of overdyed silks from what I remember - at the moment it is buried in the chronological stack of stuff by my chair. LOL

Thanks for the welcome - nice to see so many familiar faces and new friends too meet.
