Jane's Jottings

A special book has arrived- Cross Stitch Antique Style Samplers- Limited Edition

New book double page spread

My lovely new book photographed on my new desk……Just perfect

We have had a real turn around here at Pinks Barn with all the building and so on and in the process I have a lovely Georgian desk in the main lounge complete with daylight lamp and comfy chair. I think Bill agreed to the expense because it means that I do surface from the Studio in the evenings and stitch while he is around. It had got to the stage where we had to have a “date” to see each other. My Cardiac Consultant tells me there is nothing wrong with being a workaholic but I am not sure Bill agrees…….

About the book – my Publishers, latterly David & Charles, have let me have my own special version of this new book in hardback with the real printed dust jacket which includes an extra chart on the reverse.  The soft back version of this title will be published in October without the extra chart but I have my own version now! We have taken my original sampler book, sadly now out of print and kept the best things but added more challenging projects. This is my sampler box  stitched over last winter – I must admit to loving this…….

 More views of my favourite project

There are more new samplers included in the this book  including another lovely band sampler and a Quaker project inspired by our visit to Ackworth School.  I have kept some of my old favourites but the whole book has been redesigned and includes gorgeous pictures of most of my sampler collection. As I have said, this version is limited and when they are gone this will not be reprinted.
