This week the start of a new SAL. This time designs for Christmas. Although I am showing them all as a complete sampler design, each motif is ideal for an individual card. 

Today, here is the border design which you might like to get started on, and of course, the list of threads that you will need for the sampler. The first motif, the cute penguin, will start next Wednesday.

This week I also added two more new designs to my Shop.

LJT Part series Autumn sampler 6

7th Sep 2021

Part 6 of my Autumn sampler series and an adorable little squirrel for you to stitch.

If you are just stitching these for cards I have chosen to add, on the simulated picture, an additional green outer border for you, as I think it completes the design.  Obviously this is different to the chart for the complete sampler.

I have to say I am really pleased with these designs and I hope you are all enjoying stitching them.

Happy stitching and take care,...

LJT Part series Autumn sampler 1

3rd Aug 2021

It's always great to make a start on the first motif, so I hope you will all enjoy the next 9 weeks completeing these Autumn images.

With the small simulated images I am going to add a green outline as I feel it completes the design. This isn't on the chart but simple enough to copy if you like my idea.

As before, I do not have the time to stitch these free designs, so if you find any mistakes then please...
