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...
