Summer Sampler

Publié le par Romy in Austria

Now it's summer time and I thought it would be nice to start a little summer stitching. I choose the Summer Sampler by Chessie&Me. It's a nice and funny stitching. Most of the design is stitched in cross stitch and smyrna cross stitch. There are little parts of satin stitch and one over one cross stitch. So there is everything I like on a design.

Maybe you are familir with this, the design calls for some speciality threads and I have tons of silk and overdied threads but never the threads the deisgn calls for.

First I thought I have to order the threads, but when I looked through my stash I found some Old Willow Stitcher Threads which I really liked for this Summer House. My Summer Sampler now will look quite different, but I'm really pleased how it comes along. Here's my progress so far:

Romy,You and I must have similar tastes. I love all the designs I saw on your blog. I have substituted overdyed threads for ones I have on hand as well. There are so many nowadays.  Thank you for sharing your lovely stitching!Michele
