From the designer: The Sampler of the Month series consists of 12 designs that will be released consecutively for 12 months. Each chart has a stitch count of 45w x 125h. These are monthly samplers that are not intended to be stitched as one large piece, therefore I will not be providing info to do that. Rather, they are meant to be displayed one at a time, according to the month. I will be using Family Tree Frame Co.’s 4” x 9” June frame in Fleamarket Icing to do this.
The fabric used for the models is Wichelt’s 32 count Beautiful Beige Linen. The designs are stitched entirely in Classic Colorworks’ threads and use the same threads throughout. If all of the designs are stitched, a total of this many skeins of floss will be needed: Classic Colorworks’ Snowball (6), Little Sprout (5), Wagon Wheel (3), Really Teally (2), Pumpkin Harvest (2), Finley Gold (2), Pink Posey (2), Cherry Tomato (2), Hickory Sticks (1), Frozen Margarita (1), Sunkissed (1). DMC alternatives are provided on the charts.
