Another Gardening themed Sampler!


When I was in Hobbycraft yesterday, I saw the Garden Sampler shown above and liked it so much, I decided to treat myself. Its really cute, with additional embellishments - there is a rake, trowel and fork which you can stitch onto the canvas once you have complete the cross stitch part. And the fabric is a rustic colour 28 ct linen and threads are DMC - just perfect!

That's a lovely sampler, Ali - and the fabric and embellishments sound yummy! It's so good to treat oneself every now and then :)

Big hugs to you and thank you for your wonderful comment! You brought the sunshine to my desk :)

I love that sampler! Very different. :D

Your seed sampler is looking great as well! And I can't wait to see your Welsh sampler framed. :D

Hey hun!

Heeeyyy this looks great. I'm looking forward to the regular updates we'll receive for this one! I'm not really a big fan of kits, but when you find a kit with everything you could want that just suits the project perfectly, it makes it all the more worthwhile to buy it! As me Ma always says "Treating yourself is good for the soul"! xxx

After all, it looks like you're not going to give up samplers totally! (for cute cahracters!). It's great! I also loved it when I saw it in DMC's catalogue... It will be a treat to grow!
