Freebie ~ October 2011 Stitch Sampler

Here’s my favorite type of sampler … a band sampler with lots of special stitches, but no stitches that are too complicated.  It is narrow enough to be stitched in hand, and long enough to be challenging.  I’m starting to use Sullivan’s floss, because it’s made from beautiful Egyptian cotton, and yet is less expensive than DMC.  Here’s a  link to their Conversion Charts:

October Stitch Sampler is under my copyright, and for your personal stitching pleasure only.  It is not released for any commercial use.

Happy Stitching!
