Halloween Sampler

Halloween Sampler

JD207 -Halloween Sampler -   Fabric: 35 ct Weeks Dye Works Confederate Grey. Design Size approx. 8 x 9 ½” Hallowe’en Sampler Emb. Pkg.:  This has the Silk threads of the border, the handdyed cotton and metallic threads used throughout the piece and the handmade button by JABCO for this piece.

This is a ‘match’ to Christmas Sampler designed a few years ago. It is the same size and enjoys the same Quakerish feel to the piece. Mostly this piece is cross stitched with a few motifs in specialty stitches- it has some good diagrams to help you through those. Happy Halloween!

Check list of threads needed to stitch the chart below. These items will all be in the Emb. Pkg.

Fall Shaker Box

Fall Shaker Box


JD208--Fall Shaker Box -   Fabric: 32 ct any neutral colour- I used Lt. Mocha.   Design Size: 78 x 78. Pattern only.  The Model was stitched in Gentle Art Threads-Simply Wool but the cotton Floss would look equally well. The colours used are: Burnt Orange, Dark Chocolate, Fragrant Cloves, Maple Syrup, Piney Woods, Pumpkin Pie, Tarnished Gold, and Wood Trail.  I added an orange button from JABCO in the center. This uses a box from Lone Elm Designs 6" round -Chocolate and trim from Lady Dot Creates – Jack Chenille. This also has a match in Acorn Shaker Box from last year.

Wool Pincushion & Fob

Wool Pincushion & Fob



JD209--Wool Pincushion and Fob - Fabric: 32 ct any neutral colour – I used Lt. Mocha. Design Size 58 x 58, stitched on 32 ct for the pincushion, the Fob is 34 x 34 stitched on 40 ct using The Gentle Art Simply Wool for both pincushion and Fob. The colours used are: Blue Spruce, Gold Leaf, Portabella, Ruby Slipper, Verdigris and Wood Trail. It was a bit of a tight fit using the wool for the little 40 ct fob, and I should have probably tried the cotton….. but I do really love the raised look and feel the wool has on a piece. It holds colour well and I love the 3-D effect it creates.  This uses 4“ Pincushion round from Lone Elm Designs -Brick Red.
