Ten years ago (when I was buying everything cross stitch I saw) I got a unique pattern called “The Friendship Collaboration Sampler”. It is unique in that 3 designers, Shepherd’s Bush, Charland Designs & Just Nan got together to put this beautiful piece together.
The piece is stitched on 28 Ct. Ivory Linen Banding using DMC and features several specialty stitches and three charms which represent each designer.
Part one, by Shepherd’s Bush is 56 stitches by 43 stitches and features two little sheep and flowers along with dividers stitched in The Satin Stitch, The Herringbone Stitch, The Rice Stitch, The Hungarian Stitch and The Knitting Stitch. Also attached in the center of the second band is a sterling silver shepherd charm.
Here is a snap of
the first three bands of Part I that I have completed. The little sheep are adorable!
