Item details

"Good Deeds Live Long" is a stitchable sampler design printed on a cotton panel. Just place it in a hoop, choose your own colors and stitches to fill in the design as you wish.

Design is printed in pale grey measuring 8.5 x 7" and the 100% cotton panel measures roughly 13 x 12". (The main image shows my original hand drawn design stitched as a model. This listing is for an unstitched print on cotton as shown in the second image. This listing is for an unstitched print on cotton. You will need your own tools, floss and a few basic stitches like the back stitch. All my samplers are offered as unguided experiments in color and stitch preference. It does not include thread or stitch instructions.)

It would be pretty finished in a frame. I plan to make mine up into a pillow when my new fabric collection arrives (Tilly from Blend Fabrics). I'll add that photo when it's complete.

**** You can use any embroidery floss.

I use pearl cotton because it's just my preference. Some of the DMC perle cotton size 8 colors I used are:
3801 red pink
783 gold
782 gold brown
320 greenieblue
503 robin's egg blue
352 pale pink
946 orange
926 denim blue
3347 green
3348 lighter green
840 coffee

**** My favorite stitches are back stitch for outlines, satin stitch for filling in, running stitch (and double running), daisy stitch, couching, feather stitch (aka goose tracks) and french knots. Sometimes I go back and weave another color through a stitch like the running stitch. Experiment - find the ones you love too.

Average review
Lovely - it's a great size for an ongoing project. I especially like that it is printed in light grey so that the guiding lines are less obvious after stitching.
