Sampler goodness!

Since I have been busy working and have therefore not even finished my own sampler, I thought I would showcase two other crafters who gave my 2009 embroidery sampler a go! First up is Rachel of Potluck Crafters, who stitched up this lovely bright sampler. I just love her color choices, they make me think of spring!

Librarianguish also made her own version, on a lovely gray fabric. Don't you just love that spider's web stitch?? Check out Librarianguish's Flickr for more pics of her sampler, and lots of other cool photos!

I also thought I would mention a very neat giveaway over at Blueberry Junike - if you'd like to win a cute little bird onesie for one of the kiddos in your life, check out this blog! Last day today, so hurry up!


  1. Thanks for featuring me, too Karin!

    I'm not quite finished with mine yet, but I did acquire the floss I need yesterday so I should get back to it soon.

    Again, thanks for sharing your pattern with us!

  2. What a great sampler design. Love the different interpretations. The bag you made for your Mum in a previous post is very stylish - I love IKEA fabric too!

  3. hello Karin thanks for visiting my blog :-) the crochet thing would be easy for someone as obviously talented as yourself at all things crafty! I love the embroidery sampler :-)

  4. Hej Karin!

    Tack för din rara kommentar, och vad roligt att hitta till dig! Jag drömmer om att kunna brodera så jag blir alldeles grön av avund när jag ser dina underbara saker du gör! Jag kikar snabbt in nu, men kommer mer än gärna tillbaka och inspireras mer!

    Varmaste kramarna

  5. Wonderful sampler, I used to embroider a lot, for some reason I just don't seem to do it as much any more.

  6. hi, thanks for visiting me . I love that Ikea fabric too -- its sitting in my wardrobe waiting for the right project to come along :-)

  7. I really want to have a go at making a sampler, yours is so inspiring!

    You won my little valentine giveaway! Please let me know your mailing address and I'll send it to you :)

  8. Very cute job on your sampler design.

  9. That sampler pattern of yours is wonderful! I'm now fighting the urge to start choosing floss colors so I can try it out myself but I should probably finish some of the many half-completed projects waiting for me first. :) What fun though - nice work!
