Hey &Stitchers, how are your Garden Path Samplers coming along? Sampler Month has come to a close, but we wanted to show off how our samplers have turned out!
Nicole's sampler is coming along beautifully -- check out her gorgeous Bullion Knot roses!
Carina's is so cheerful and bright, and I love the stitches she's chosen. A few of her choices are new to me, it kind of makes me want to stitch up another with her selection!
And my own sampler is finished - I chose to work with only detached stitches (including using the detached Wheatear Stitch variation) and had a really good time playing with the placement and scale of each stitch. I also used different line stitches for each of the dividing lines and border.
A few of you have also shared yours in the &Stitches Flickr pool and we've loved watched them progress. You already saw a bit Annet's sampler in our interview with her the other day, and she's posted about it on her blog Fat-Quarter.
Flickr user Daisy has also finished up a sampler of her own - I love that woven cross stitch:
And Pam has worked her sampler in crewel wool and has added in a pebble path in satin stitch - what a clever idea:
Find out more about Pam's sampler on her blog.
We've loved stitching this project with you guys so much, I can't tell you how much I enjoy seeing a project interpreted in everyone's individual styles. I really hope you'll stitch-along with us again sometime! Don't forget to keep stitching your samplers and, pretty please show them off in the Flickr group!
