Seeing Blue with Faye

Faye R., who lives in North Carolina, stitched a lovely version of Quaker Sampling II.  She used 35-count Straw linen from Weeks Dye Works and Blue Lagoon Belle Soie  thread from Crescent Colours.  What a nice combination of colors!

Faye told me she especially  likes the floral motif in the photo on the right.  She also told me that she often pulls out a motif  from a design and makes something extra such as a scissors weight, needlebook, or other small needlework treasure.  I'm looking forward to seeing what she creates, aren't you?  I think the floral motif she likes would look wonderful on the front of a needlebook, don't you?

Faye wrote, I just love stitching up your beautifully crafted charts. They are always so easy to follow and your directions are very clear. I consider your chart packs to be one of the best layed out in the business..... Soon I hope to begin "Quaker Sampling III"...(it is sitting patiently in my basket....) And, who knows, perhaps I will buy "An Emblem of Love..." to do one day as well!

Thanks, Faye, for the photos of your needlework and your very kind words.  You have certainly warmed my heart.  We try very hard to create designs that you will enjoy and directions that will add to your pleasure.
