This is the ninth in a series of twelve smaller samplers that can be stitched together to form one larger sampler or stitched individually. The first chart was released in February 2012, and the final chart in was released February 2013. Each chart has details for planning a larger sampler; when complete, there will be an entire alphabet and numbers included. All borders are the same and the last chart will have small motifs that can be inserted into the small spaces left between the samplers’ borders to complete the larger sampler.

My eldest grandson Dylan, who was 4 years old at the time, inspired this design when he was cuddled up at my side watching me stitch a sampler while visiting him and his family in Berkshire, England. After explaining what a sampler was, he asked if I could stitch one for his room. Thrilled, I agreed that I could indeed. I asked him what he would like on it. He replied “Grammy, I would like bees, lots of bees.”
I designed a honeycomb fabric, which is printed exclusively for this piece. The fabirc design is subtle , yet fun.
This 10 page booklet includes 2 minis and 1 small sampler, plus and alphabet for personalizing the finish piece.

I have always wanted to create a family tree sampler that can be expanded so that anyone can create their own sampler memories. I love this color of floss with the frame (Gemini Moulding #G4006) they are a perfect match and the finished piece reminds me of scherenschinitte, the art of German paper cutting.
This 10 page booklet includes a separate large graph page for laying out your own family branches. It also includes instructions for planning your project, the alphabet in leaves, wording shown on the cover and an extra alphabet if you prefer to change the wording, a large alphabet if you would like to add the family name, the small alphabet for adding your entire family's names at bottom of tree branches, and a Wedding or Anniversary mini Sampler, plus two extra pages for graphs for planning you wording, and of course my Be Creative! ideas.
DESIGN SIZE: AS SHOWN
HOWEVER, THIS IS A CUSTOM PIECE SO THE SIZE WILL VARY
138 X 138 stitches
FABRIC USED: Cashel 28ct Ivory linen
FLOSS USED: The Gentle Arts #7095 Carriage Black--again the amount will vary, the chart gives you an idea of how far the floss will go.
