2015  -  Mystery Sampler Project  -  2015

Many ladies participated in The
Mystery Sampler  and The Favoured Shades Sampler mystery projects

and many of them also participated in the 2015 project entitled, The Butterfly Sampler

As per previous projects  - each participant would

   Receive a progressive section of this new sampler each month

  • Choose the threads and colours that were their favourite

   Choose the fabric type, colour & count that they preferred

 The finished design size of the Band Sampler on 28 count fabric was   6  x  12.75
and worked with one over-dyed thread and three complementary shades
of one colour - light, medium and dark - that were in the variegated thread

with Perle #8 and Perle #12 either the same colour as their choice of fabric
or the same colour as one of their chosen complementary thread colours.
Bead embellishment size and colour were their choice.
So too, charms if they chose to add them  (e.g. butterflies, bees, dragonflies, ladybirds, flowers, etc.)

For those ladies who did not wish to choose their own colours, threads and fabric,
sampler instructions were given for two different colour options
~  blue  &  crimson  ~

Here is a sneak peek  -



As with all mystery sampler projects,
the complete sampler design would remain a mystery.

As each section was worked month by month it was revealed.

This was to be THEIR sampler, therefore, they could

*  Change a suggested colour shade  or  substitute it with an overdyed thread

*  Change  or  omit a band section

*  Add a stitch  or  a verse

This project began on the 1st of April and finished on the 1st of September 2015

  • This project as a "progressive" sampler has now closed
    but the complete sampler design may be purchased from Heirlooms,
    and it is possible to stitch it as a 'mystery'
    by only looking at the monthly instructions
    and not looking at the last pages of the instructions.

    Progressive reports are posted below


    otherwise you will spoil the mystery of it
