Finished embroidery: this month’s new doll’s house sampler kit is now available

This is my latest doll’s house scale needlepoint sampler. 

An Arts and Crafts style doll's house sampler, which measures just over two inches wide. It's stitched on 32 count evenweave fabric.

The saying on the sampler is ‘Love is Enough’ – a phrase made popular by William Morris, the Arts and Crafts designer of interior furnishings who found fame at the end of the Victorian era.

It’s featured in the latest edition of Dolls House World magazine (the February issue, number 221, which is on sale during January 2011). It is the second in a series of sampler designs that I am doing for the magazine over the next few months. If you get yourself a copy, you can stitch the design from the colour block chart included in the magazine. You’ll need a piece of 32 count evenweave fabric, a size 26 tapestry needle, and some Anchor stranded cotton. If you prefer to buy the full kit from me (which includes a stained and varnished wooden picture frame, to mount the  sampler in), then you can take advantage of the special offer in the magazine to get 25% off the usual kit price. Just quote the Discount Offer Code listed in the magazine when you buy online from my website, and you can buy the sampler kit for £6 instead of £7.95.  If you choose to buy the sampler kit this month, then you can take advantage of the fact that I have a January Sale on at the moment, where everything is reduced – including this new sampler. So, with the magazine code as well, you can benefit from a double discount!

      Thanks – surprisingly, though, patience isn’t my strong point, and although I don’t wear glasses, I wouldn’t say that anyone would need very good eyesight to stitch on this count of fabric. Good light is necessary, though – either daylight, or a daylight bulb to work by, if natural daylight isn’t available. I often work with a daylight bulb attached to my frame, even during the daytime, as it helps make the holes in the fabric clearer. And stitching for fairly short periods helps 🙂 (not easy, though!).
