Sampler in Blue Nearly Completed

I had thought I was absolutely finished but then when I took this picture I saw there was a row on the right side border that I haven't crossed yet!! There might be more uncrossed stitches so I'd better look carefully. Very carefully.

More candy wrapper stitching.  Certainly glad for friends that are saving wrappers for me.

This month's guild stitching project is to make a 9" x 9" whole cloth piece.  Using a light box I traced flowers and curly cues onto the cloth.  Then using acrylic paint, textile medium and a small brush I began to paint.

This is my completed painted design.  Next I will put a pellon backing onto it and begin to outline stitch the flowers and stems using running stitches, back stitch, chain or maybe even cable chain.  Not sure yet.  I should be working on Christmas gifts but this has gotten me side-tracked.

Have a most wonderful day,


  1. I love your work Jeannette. I'm interested in the painted flowers. Do you use a fabric medium with the acrylics or is it special paint?

  2. It is good you found the uncrossed stitches before you framed it - I have found things like that afterwards and it is very frustrating. Beautiful sampler!
