“Love is a fruit in Season at all times and within reach of every hand…” – Mother Theresa

Stitch this lovely sampler in the Victorian Tradition! This stunning 24″ long Band Sampler is inspired by #224 Victorian Purse and Smalls, and #205 Victorian Pincushion and Smalls.

Stitched with over-dyed silk and silk flosses, silk ribbons, wool, pearls, and sparkling beads. The topper is a gorgeous Bargello heart with a vine, above some creamy lacy stitching, The Alphabet and then a scene picked out in gorgeous colours in petit Cross Stitches and the tree of life, as well as petit bands for interest and fun.

Further down, Mother Theresa’s inspiring verse is stitched within two bands of silk ribbon flowers. Another alphabet follows, and after some more creamy lace, there’s an English country scene with two friends reaching for the fruit of the ‘love’ tree in their garden.

More flowers, and at the bottom is a row of Bargello, incorporating the colours already used in the sampler. Enjoy stitching this fun sampler full of exquisite colour and exciting specialty stitches, and a meaningful verse of love for all seasons. – Thea
