      Stitched on 32 count vintage country mocha lugana and stitched with HDF in Blackboard. And thanks to @lyarrow for the beautiful design.

      What a beauty Robin! I adore Quaker style and you must be thrilled!

      I had to check my inventory of “Blackboard” and was surprised to find it was a custom twist!! (Really? REALLY???)

      Here is the “recipe” for anyone interested: Mermaid Blue 2331, Magpie 2351 & wet sprayed with Basic Black 5300.

      Thank you for sharing! (Hope to see it on your HDF Media page so I can drool again. LOL)

      Looks lovely! I like the placement of the motifs. Blackboard is one of my favorites. Let me pull out a small piece I did in this color. Will post in a separate thread.

      @luv2stitch2

      About 15 years ago, I was using PC stitch to create designs. I created a huge French Alphabet Sampler very personalized for my family and I’m still stitching on it! lol And I designed a few small ones of which I shared with others and thus, Robin’s picture. πŸ™‚ I like symmetry a lot which also limits my creativity because you can get such interesting designs/patterns when you let go of your tendencies. I never managed to let go so did the designing just for fun. And….. because I didn’t want to pay the prices for a personalized French alphabet sampler!

      I can concur on the pricey French Alphabet samplers! You did an AMAZING job!!! It’s a great chart! @lyarrow


      @robininvirginia
      … such a beautiful Quaker sampler. I am particularly fond of Quakers myself. I bought that book put out by StitchyBox(?) I think, showing all the early quaker designs and original pattern motifs. It’s a handy book.

      PS: I think I’m might need some Blackboard!!
