I love this sampler! I must have missed this one somehow but I love everything about it, but it is the little deer that touched my heart :)

Joanne O'H said...

This sampler is wonderful. I love that band as well.

Vera said...

So, everyone has mentioned what I love...I love the diamonds, I love the wreaths, but the tiny deer has touched my heart.

MarchAnn said...

I have to agree with you on the first band because of the beautiful blue floss.

Jonette said...

I love the colors and the little deer.

Nikki said...

Gorgeous, and I love the border too.

Nicola said...

posted on behalf of Wilma - I love the wreath with the vases on both sides. Yet another sampler to put on my wishlist, its gorgeous!

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

For me it's the mixture of straight bands with the alphabet and the spot motifs at the bottom.
Each of those is like having a mini finish which is good for motivation.

Debbie Bauer said...

I love the flower band!! The little deer is so sweet. This is a gorgeous sampler.

Lelia said...

I like the vines w/flowers -- and, I'll enjoy stitching an alphabet any day!

Great colors.

Cheri said...

The little deer was the first thing I was drawn to.

Lanie said...

Ooohhh how beautiful she is!! I,too, love the top floral band ... and the alphabet ... and the charming motifs ... and the color palette ... LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!

Sharon H said...

There is something about the wreath cartouche that I love on samplers. I don't know what it is. Maybe the idea of a young girl figuring out how to get the leaves in a perfectly (or almost perfectly ) round circle. They are always so sweet.

Cindy L said...

I love the colors and that beautiful satin stitch band!

Nicola said...

A comment for Barbara G - I like the colours in the band you have chosen – an interesting mix.

The Inspired Stitcher said...

I like this band too and I really like the wreath with the red berries too. It's lovely! Thanks for bringing it to my attention today.

Theresa said...

the colors are gorgeous and I love the little deer. : )

Jennifer Cameron said...

Really love the wreath with the row of crowns above it.

Kim Hummel said...

I love the wreaths and the dividing bands on the alphabets, especially the red sawtooth.

Garbo y Salero said...

I like the diagonally stitch squares and the different flowers in them, I alo like the different shades used bother in the squares and band below them. Very original.....

Lisa said...

This is a beautiful sampler. I have never seen a band like this one. Looks very challenging! Love the colors.

Merry Wind Farm said...

What stands out for me is the deer!

Faye said...

samplerlover said...

Oh I love this one. I have had my eye on it for awhile and can't get it down here. I have a particular fondness for Danish Samplers and I love the borders and also wreath.

Nupur said...

like the border of the band you posted... the colors makes them very dynamic with the simplest of stitches...

Anne said...

I've never seen this sampler before! She's sooo beautiful! The border and the little creatures are my favourites.

Michele said...

For me it is the wreath in the centre, so very French.

H and T said...

The pinks! Hard sometimes to take a sampler with so much pink seriously, but not this one.

Bhooma said...

The band is the most striking feature of this sampoer, at least to me !

Marsha said...

That top border is striking but there's that cute deer on the bottom too.

Julie said...

Love the borders, dividers, and wreaths. I also like how balanced the design is.

Louise said...

This is on my someday list. I love the colors!

EvalinaMaria said...

Oh, I love flowers and the borders around the flowers and the cute animals on the bottom, and the motif in the center...

Gary Parr said...

That top band is an absolute winner.

Kevin said...

I agree that top band is really beautiful. The two birds in the center on the bottom also appeal to me, but I have some sort of affection for birds in sampler designs.

Very pretty sampler. Another I adore
