It's that time of year again...the Spring Online Needlework Show is here! If you have already checked into the show you have seen the new designs. I intended to post prior to the show opening, but I ran out of time before I left early this morning for Minnesota. Not to worry though... I am back in town to fill orders from the show next week.
Anyway...I wanted to post pictures of the new designs for all of you to see up a bit closer. The first design is called in Search of Bliss. The verse reminds us that there really is no place like home.
The second design is a reproduction of a sampler by the sister of Maragaret Brown whose sampler was reproduced and released last year. Sarah Brown's Sampler is pictured below first as the reproduction (designed using the colors from the back of the sampler) and then as the adaptation (designed using the softer faded colors from the front of the sampler.

If you compare Magaret's sampler to Sarah's sampler you will see some differences in the colors used in the large flowers in the vase, the bird motifs other either side of the sampler instead of the Quaker Stars and the number and shapes of the leaves. The borders on these two samplers are so lovely and I really enjoyed stitching both Margaret's and Sarah's samplers.
