In Thea's words:
A Sampler, Needleroll
and Boxtop Set!
"Friends are Blossoms
In the Garden of Life"
Mauve and violet Zinnias, Gillyflowers and Chrysanthemums (symbolizing thoughts of friends), and purple Forget-me-nots (symbolizing faithful love and memories) are represented in this elegant and dainty Friendship sampler. Worked on antique white pure linen, the colours of this design are based on the purple, soft violet and green of the beautiful Coventry Garden overdyed thread. The matching multicoloured blue-green and fuschia beads are lined with silver for that extra sparkle, and the use of delicate gold braid adds a touch of golden sunlight for happiness.
At the bottom of the sampler, the exquisite Hardanger heart in the middle symbolizes the love between friends. On either side are two different intricately woven Hardanger Hearts representing the special people who form that friendship. I stitched this sampler to celebrate the joyful giving and receiving of friendship and love in my life. I appreciate each and every friend and this is my tribute to the blossoms in my garden..
NOTE: The Friends Forever ornament shown on the upper right of the main photo is a free pattern! The pattern will only be available online, in our VS Club area. Please fill in our Mailing List to become a member.
In the leaflet, directions are also given for the lovely needleroll pictured here. The verse is the focal point, and the garden of friendship flowers surrounds it. Rhodes Hearts finish off this delicate needleroll!
I've also designed a separate Needlework Project Box top to match! The same glorious blossoms frame the word "friendship" and two Rhodes Hearts symbolizes your friendship. There is even space for you to include two names, or other words of friendship and love..
