#174   Christmas Day Sampler!
 Stitch this fun and quick sampler for Christmas Day! We’re celebrating the day of Christmas in all the traditional ways. What a wonderful way to celebrate Christmas! At the top of the sampler is our town, with Santa and his reindeer flying overhead. The next panel shows the living room where we hang our stockings so Santa can find them as we sleep. In the next panel, we’ve been to church , we’ve opened our presents, so now we go for a gentle walk. Next is a panel showing our Christmas dinner..! What fun and laughter, as children settle down to their toys, and the adults relax after the turkey! The dividing bands between the panels are also in on the fun; holly with berries, greenery with red hearts and garlands, specialty stitches like drawn thread and the optional Hardanger motif below.. what a joyful Christmas sampler! If you’ve always wanted to stitch something to celebrate the fun and joy of Christmas Day, come stitch this one..! I’ve stitched mine on Raw Linen, but you can choose your own coloured linen, using the same silks in bright colours ! Frame or fashion into a bellpull and hang this in your hall at Christmastime! - Thea

Sorting The Threads in your Accessory Pack: Remember to sort in daylight near a window, not under artificial light indoors, as the colours change with the colour of the lightbulbs we use. Each floss has a different number of strands in each thread length. This helps you differentiate the different colours in your pack. Needlepoint Inc. silk floss has 8 strands per length The Kreinik Mori has 6 strands per length The Gloriana Overdyed Silk has 12 thin strands per length. Dinky Dyes has 6 strands per length. FYI:We noticed that some colours have been divided into two lengths. This can happen if a colour requires 1.5 yards. Our kitmaker might include one 1 yard length and one 0.5 yard length, so don't get confused if one colour has more than one length of thread. We hope this extra information will help you sort your threads more easily!
