There is just something about Karin's stitching and choices of projects that makes me swoon. I think part of it is that she is able to stitch with ease on 40 count. I think everything looks better on 40 count......but I just can't swing it.
Anyway, here are Karin's 12 picks from her stash to concentrate on this year. First up, above, is An Anonymous Sampler. Am I correct, the designer is Chartmakers? I am not familiar with them, but if this design is any indication I need to do some research on them.
Next up is Noel by BBD.
I am totally hepped up by this one. Dutch Tile 1 by The Needle's Content. Wow!!!!
Birds of a Feather Mystery Sampler by With Thy Needle and Thread.
Bloom. I need to know the designer and what magazine this is in for someone who left a comment. Does anyone know? Karin is one of three of my friends who has this in her pile of 12. It is really a cool piece.
May I chime in again with my love for this project??? Wow! I bought the chart immediately after seeing Karin's project. 1881 Sampler Reproduction by Primitive Needleworks.
Dutch Band Sampler. This is another magazine chart.
Happy 4th from Threadwork Primitives. If you are not familiar with this designer please Google her. She has so many great designs!
Quaker Medallion Sampler by C Street Samplerworks.
The colors! The design! Amazing! Ruth Bacheler 1717. This is a going to be a masterpiece!!!!
Sampler Folk from Carriage House Samplings. I have always loved this chart! I have a start on it too. Isn't it fab??
Sweet Liberty by The Marking Sampler. Karin is going to do it on a piece of fabric that many of us have gone nuts over for patriotic pieces. It is called Heroic.
I can't wait to see the progress on these lovely picks!!! Aren't they amazing??
