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...

LJT part series Summer motifs 7

6th Jul 2021

Well, still far too much rain for most of us here in the UK this past week, but at least the temperatures have been warm.

Part 7...how time flies and thank you again for your lovely pictures you are sending in.  I think I will have to call this one a generic yellow flower as I don't think I have a particular species in mind! The shape and colour though do fit the design!

Have a good week and take care.

Happy stitching,
