On 28 count Evenweave or 2 fabric threads (or 14 count Aida) the stitched piece will measure 6 3/4 inches wide X 10 1/2 inches high. Designed with Sampler Threads by The Gentle Art, I've also included the DMC equivalents. Designed by Pamela Kellogg of Kitty and Me Designs.

Primitive Cross Stitch Sampler

I finished up another little sampler in my Inspiration Sampler Series of Counted Cross Stitch patterns:

Again, the pattern suggests Sampler Threads from The Gentle Art but I also included the DMC equivalents. 

I am so much enjoying the designing process again!  I always loved old looking samplers and I enjoy like bible verses!

New Inspirational Cross Stitch Sampler Series

Awhile ago, I mentioned that I was going to start creating some new cross stitch designs.  I've been liking primitive samplers a lot lately and I've always loved bible verses so needless to say, I put them together.
