The Praise Sampler



I finished this sampler Sunday evening, it's 'The Praise Sampler', designed by Plum Street Samplers. It's stitched on 32 ct. vintage autumn field linen with NPI and Belle Soie silks. I started it before this new set of Belle Soie colors came out, so only could easily convert 4 of the colors. The red is Belle Soie 'Rose of Sharon', but if I had waited, LOL I think the new 'Cranberry' color would have been a bit better......but I love how it turned out anyway! If you haven't tried the Crescent Colours Belle Soie silks, you need to! :) They really are nice to work with, and remind me a lot of the Silk n Colors and Gloriana silks. I'm looking forward to incorporating them into more designs, plus I read on Little House Needleworks website that she will be coming out with a sampler stitched with them. :)
