A Sample of Samplers

Fellow Embroiderers,

October is Sampler Month for the Embroidery Companion Sew Along.  Won't you join in working up a beautiful sampler?

First up we have the Eyelet Sampler.  This sampler made it into my hoop nearly a year ago and at near finished I put it aside never to find my way back to complete it.  This sew along is just the kick in the pants I need! 

Next up we have the Black work Sampler.  Besomom has a beautiful take of this sampler on flickr.

Last but not least we have the Folk Sampler which I am hoping to get a start on this month.  Of course after I finish the Eyelet Sampler first. 

Now I realize a month may be a short length of time to complete these samplers for some, at least it will be for me.  So please don't hesitate to post up 'in progress' photographs in the flickr group.  That's what I'll be doing!  

If you don't have the Embroidery Companion and would still like to join us with a sampler we'd love to have you.  Alicia has another great one up in her shop as well. 

Happy Stitching!
