This listing is for a CROSS STITCH PATTERN, not for the finished sampler.
You all tickle my sense of humor with your stories of way too much plunder hidden away in your baskets and closets. Every year, you make resolutions to only stitch from your own stash and go on a buying diet. Yet every year, it seems I sell more patterns, so that must mean that some of you are breaking your resolutions. My conclusion is to be a smarty pants and make a sampler that has the resolutions we would all prefer to keep!
Based on a “Rules for Quilting” list that I found on the internet, this sampler is customized for cross-stitchers and reads:
1. When in doubt always buy more linen and thread
2. Stitch all day and absolutely no housework allowed
3. Always start a new project before the last is finished requiring a return to number 1
And there you have it. If not a set of resolutions you plan to keep in reality, at least it would be fun to laugh and dream about it!
