Mystery Sampler Progress

At our last stitchery guild meeting we received the next installment for this great mystery sampler that one of our wonderful and talented members has designed. The section with the 3 small designs are stitched using the Squared Herringbone Stitch.  I stitched the hearts with a metallic thread using a Satin Stitch with 2 rows of wheat sheaves. The 2 toned green design is a Star Motif with satin stitches. I'm really enjoying this years guild program and especially seeing everyone else's progress and choices of colours.


  1. Thanks for visiting me and for your kind comments! I really like this sampler, what beautiful colours too - but, oh - your little crocheted hearts - they are simply adorable!

    1. Thank you Jules! I'm pleased with the colours I chose for my sampler and the hearts are so easy peasy to crochet :)

  2. It's good to see this embroidery again. Never tried the squared herringbone, maybe I try it when the herringbone is stitch of the week at TAST.

  3. Thanks Annet. Yes, I'm sure it will come up. It's great that there are soooo many stitches to learn :)


Thank you very much for stopping by and taking the time to leave me a comment. I appreciate all of them!
