Sampler of Seasons is the culmination of two years of sketching and daydreaming at work. It became quite a normal sight to see me dash off to the office to make notes and jot down an idea that was floating around in my head. The verse came about in much the same way, often jumping out of bed in the middle of the night to write out what was running through my mind so I wouldn't lose it come morning. It has been a long time coming, at times difficult and painful, as it was one of the pieces I was working on when I found out about my dad's illness, and after his passing I just couldn't face working on it. I finished it as a tribute to him, to his strength, to his
endurance and to his unwavering love and support. I love and miss you every day, Dad.
The model for this design was stitched with Valdani Hand-Dyed Colourfast silk floss on Legacy Linen and as always a DMC conversion is included.
Stitch Count: 287w x 287h
Design Size: 14 ½ x 14 ½ inches on 40 count fabric
16 x 16 inches on 36 count fabric
17 x 17 inches on 34 count fabric as model stitched
18 x18 inches on 32 count fabric
20 ½ x 20 ½ inches on 28 count fabric
Fabric used in the model is 34 count Wren Wing linen from Legacy Linen. Zweigart Natural (aka Raw) is very close to the same colour, just slightly darker if you need to substitute. You can use Aida, but you will have to pierce the fabric for a large number of stitches if you do.
The DMC conversion included is really not all that close, Valdani's colours are very hard to replicate with DMC. Most of these colours are also available in Valdani hand dyed cotton floss if you prefer to use cotton. If you choose to use DMC, you're probably best picking colours you like rather than trying to follow the conversion exactly. I've added a description of the original colour to help you.
