Drawing inspiration from traditional samplers, Gail Bussi’s pastel-hued design incorporates a number of sweet motifs that give it a truly cheerful feel! With gentle tangles of flowers, plump bluebirds and a quartet of butterflies, it’s a sun-filled scene that brings to mind the sound of chirruping birds on afternoons when all is right with the world.
This sampler has a design area of 26.5x10cm, and is finished with seed beads and Murano glass beads.
