I didn't like the fabric I was working on (25 count Jobelan - I hate Jobelan) so I started over. This is on 35 ct. undyed Vikki Clayton linen, over 2 with 1 strand regular, Vikki Clayton LE 2465, 2155, 2319.
Good morning all..... just finished page 7 yesterday and thot I'd put up a progress picture of the Spot Sampler..... this is going to be full of very pretty and interesting motifs..... thanx for looking....
Hello all.... just wanted to add my latest progress picture..... I have finished page 6 and am looking forward to page 7..... everyone is doing such beautiful work..... it keeps me going, just to see them.....
i finished this a few days ago.. sorry i am slow posting a picture!love the sampler and i must say i am loving stitching the HDF purples.. she is the only person with this range of purples available and they are truly sublime IRL
here is my third week.. i decided to wait til page 4 to finish the motif as i would have had to rethread the needle to go any further and i have Serenity Sampler also being stitched atm so i was strong and stopped!
this is now known as the Purple-icious spot sampler and i love it!
Here's this weekends work on our beautiful spot sampler. I tried scanning the stitching this time around just to see if the colours show up better. The fabric is cream newcastle and I am working 1 over 2 with HDF threads. I'll come back and update this post when I know the colours used for the two motifs I stitched this week. I'm really pleased with how it is looking so far. Thank you Martina for such a lovely pattern to work with.
Hello folks, here is my start on the Spot Sampler mystery 2008. I'm stitching mine on 40ct Cream Newcastle with Vikki Claytons Hand-dyed Fibers (HDF). The colours I have used thus far are: Ultra violet 2125 (upper left motif), Limited edition 1453/1455/2125 (for the one below it) and the large motif to the right is stitched with Ultra Maroon 1455.
I am planning to introduce Ultra Maroon 1453, another LE colour - 2125/2115/1455 and Nosegay 2115 as the sampler progresses.
I had these colours sitting in my stash for a while and I have to admit, I was pleased to hear about this project so I could finally get them out and stitch with them. I think that is why it stitched up so quickly this time around!
I'm looking forward to following everyone's progress! Happy stitching!
Oh look, at the top of the page we can see a little bit more of the mystery unveiled! It looks so wonderful, I can't wait.
I know I won't be able to keep up with a page a week, especially when November and December get here. Plus I will be traveling a week in October, so there I get another week behind. But for now, I am caught up.
I am stitching my sampler on 25 count white jobelan using Vikki Clayton Limited Edition color 2465/2155/2319 (jadeite, velvet midnight and mermaid blue). My intention is to incorporate some of the solid color components into the sampler at some point.
i am approaching this with caution i used to have a blogger blog and left cos i could never post pics successfully
i finished the first page over the weekend , i put a pic in the yahoo group, but i have added it here too to see if i can post a picture successfully ( you are all the guinea pigs!!)
i also just started the ornament martina posted today, but no picure yet as it took me more than an hour to choose which silk to use! i am stitch in it 1x2 on 50 ct white legacy linen using HDF silk in oxblood
my Spot Sampler is being stitched 1x1 on cream 35 ct linen from HDF using the HDF Sue Purple series as well as some LE varigates from the range
I can't wait to stitch the next page, though i am not sure i will be able to keep it at a page a week , maybe a page a fortnight!
