Our friends are so precious - they help us enjoy the good times and support us through any bad times. So now's the ideal opportunity to show them how much they mean to you with Gail Bussi's gorgeous sampler. With pastel colours and gingham patterns, it would make the perfect thank you present for an angelic friend! As your design springs to life with backstitch you'll feel proud to give such a loving gift. Or you could use this chart to stitch some matching accessories to go with your sampler - why not use the butterfly, birdhouse or heart motif on its own to decorate a mirror compact or even to make a little gift tag. So put on your stitcher's wings and sew your way to a heavenly sampler...” You can see more of Gail's cross stitch patterns over at www.crosstitch.com and www.imaginating.com.
