“Whether together or far apart, you are the sister of my Heart." Stitch this beautiful feminine and heartfelt “Sister” Sampler! Elegant and timeless, yet fitting more modern decor, this sampler is just the thing to celebrate your own sister, or those who are sisters of your heart. You will enjoy stitching bands of specialty stitches, flowers, and lovely Hardanger lace, as you work with the overdyed silk flosses chosen for their joy and happy feelings.
I don’t have a birth sister, but I do have a few very dear friends who are my own chosen sisters, and I designed it with them in mind. The verse is suitable for various people, including gifting friends that feel like your sisters. Elegant and timeless, yet fitting more modern decor, this sampler is just the thing to spend extra time stitching to celebrate your own sister, or those who are sisters of your heart. At the top is a lovely urn holding stylized flowers, surrounded by vines and birds in shades of blue and pale fuschia. The lace is all stitched with ivory threads and makes this a really feminine sampler. There is a wonderful shade of deep gold which adds drama to the stitching. You will enjoy stitching bands of specialty stitches, flowers, and lovely Hardanger lace, as you work with the overdyed silk flosses chosen for their joy and happy feelings. The band in the middle that shows two ladies having tea together symbolizes the special relationship between sisters. Stitch this sampler for yourself, your sister(s) or a friend who is your chosen sister, to celebrate your relationship and show them how much they mean to you. Stitch it with joy as you know you are a sister of the heart to so many, and hang it in your own home! This is a labour of love. - Thea

Sorting The Threads in your Accessory Pack:
Remember to sort in daylight near a window, not under artificial light indoors, as the colours change with the colour of the lightbulbs we use. Each floss has a different number of strands in each thread length. This helps you differentiate the different colours in your pack. Needlepoint Inc. silk floss has 8 strands per length The Kreinik Mori has 6 strands per length The Gloriana Overdyed Silk has 12 thin strands per length. Dinky Dyes has 6 strands per length. FYI: We noticed that some colours have been divided into two lengths. This can happen if a colour requires 1.5 yards. Our kitmaker might include one 1 yard length and one 0.5 yard length, so don't get confused if one colour has more than one length of thread.
We hope this extra information will help you sort your threads more easily![/js-tab][/js-tabs]
