A triple delight with a sampler that has 3 bands in one! this sampler was built out of the idea for the 2009 Shepherd's Bush retreat theme of 'a sampling of myself' attended by Jeannette. It uses all silk threads and has lovely little charms and buttons to complete it.
A continuation of what was inspired by Acorn Stitches. This pattern was originally taught at the Niagara Peninsula Needlearts Guild in St. Catharines ON. building on the theme of Acorn Stitches I have used grapes as the base and given you a varitey of new stitches to learn!

As with the other pieces in this series, it focuses on a motif and how many different ways the motif can be stitched. If you are new to this series, pineapples are a symbol of welcome so we welcome you to this great series. It fits into the same box used through out the series, the JD061 box from Olde Colonial Designs. Substitutes from P & G Enterprises are available for the box.
This pattern was originally taught at Acorns and Threads in Portland, OR. I have changed the middle to reflect a more general wording that we can all use, and it became the inspiration for a totally new series! It is what I seem to do best, mix old yet make new! Enjoy!
