A Girl's Sampler

I love reproduction samplers but I have never been too sure as to whether they were "right" for LHN as a company.  Since I love the creative process, I always felt they might not allow me the creative expression I love to have with each and every design we release.  So instead of buying an old sampler and painstakingly reproducing every stitch (which looks VERY hard), I decided to try to create a girl's sampler in LHN style.  No, it isn't old, not a reproduction, but rather a compilation of all of the things I love about old samplers.

The design is called "Sarah Street - Faithfulness".  The surname "Street" is a very old name that dates back to the early founding of this country.  I am sure there are many descendants by this day and time.   I had considered releasing these designs in the "Dear Diary" line of patterns we currently have but instead thought to release them individually.  I have ideas for more so I'll definitely be releasing a few in 2011.
 "Sarah Street" will ship this month.

  7. Looks like another great design! I have been on a "reproduction stitching" kick for months now. I, too, would rather design them than re-chart them.......Nancy
