We all know that our favourite hobby has been much-loved by generations before us. So this month we've got a project that will whisk you back in time... with our traditional sampler by Caroline Palmer. Not only will this classical design let you experiment with an elegant new look, but as you stitch Caroline's stylish design, you'll see that it's full of pretty sampler motifs such as flowers, hearts, homes, nature, plants - inspired by traditional samplers.
This beautiful cross stitch pattern would make a heart-warming new home gift. Plus we've also got three sweet extras for you - our keyring, card and paperweight would make great gifts your friends will love. If you can't bear to give it away, then this pretty, lacy sampler is the perfect way to welcome visitors to your own home. Stitched on 28 count brown natural linen, using just one shade of white thread with scattered beads and a heart charm, it's really easy to try this great new look. Why not pick and choose which individual motifs to stitch into an accompanying gift tag or card? (don't miss our quick-stitch extras). Or you could always stitch a few of the smaller motifs on to an aida band to decorate a pen or key pot. So what are you waiting for? Get stitching this sweet sampler, and warm up your home stitch-by-stitch, today!
