Modern Folk Embroidery

shop_through the bitter frost and snow

Speaking of Red and White Samplers!!!  I found a great source for beautiful charts.  This is Through the Bitter Frost and Snow by Modern Folk Embroidery.  Jacob DeGraaf is the designer and heart behind Modern Folk.  Here is a link to his website where there are so many beautiful charts!!!  He also hand dyes his own wool.


I ordered the above chart with the plan in mind to stitch some of the individual motifs and make Christmas ornaments!!!  Won't that be so much fun!!!???

All are gorgeous! Love the red.

I DO agree with you. However, you may need help! ;)

Wow! I really like the 1st design you featured. But instead of red and white, it has me wanting to play with my blue threads. Thank you for the link, Laura! Enjoy your weekend; may it be filled with a few (or more) stitches!
