Embroidery Sampler Exercise

Found on Flickr

Embroidery sampler exercise.

Oh, how I do love a good sampler! And I especially love a sampler that's doing what they're meant to do: teach the embroiderer new stitches and techniques. I don't know what it is, but those little rows of practiced stitches just fill my heart with joy.

Paloma from Three Kitchen Fairies created this beautiful sampler as a way to try out a few of the many, many exciting stitches described in "Mary Thomas’s Dictionary of Embroidery Stitches". I have an old copy of this book myself, and it is the best in my collection - every stitch you could possibly think of it in there, it's my go-to reference now. I love the idea of just jumping in and trying them all out like Paloma's done!
