A view of the sampler finish,  and some options other than the pincushion finish. The cubes are the 12 snippets- 6 on each cube and the humbug is the free chart that came as a thank you in Snippets # 11 & 12. The box top is the O Canada Sampler and the snippets are made into needlework accessories, very clever both of them. Thanks to the lovely ladies who finished them.

We will continue to carry the Vimy ridge Sampler. Vimy Ridge a sampler commemorating the battle in France that has become the symbol of Canadian national achievement and sacrifice. Next year is 100 years on April 9 that this occurred and a stitcher- Lorraine Clark asked if I would do something to commemorate it. And thus we have the Vimy Ridge Sampler. It has in the usual JDD style, some words on why I used what I did in the rows and of course the stitch diagrams for the stitches. There is a silk embellishment pack available.
