2016  -  Mystery Sampler Project  -  2016

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.



As per previous projects  - each participant would

   Receive a progressive section of this new sampler each month

  • Choose the threads and thread colours that were their favourite

   Choose the fabric type, colour & count that they preferred


Finished Design Size :
  13"  x  14.75"  (33cm  x  37.5cm)  on 32 count fabric

Stitch Count :  207w  x  236h

Overdyed thread
DMC Stranded Cotton  -  Two or three shades of one solid coloured thread for each family member

Techniques :  Cross Stitch  &  Backstitch

For those ladies who did not wish to choose their own colours, threads and fabric
these details as per the original sampler design were given

Here is a sneak peek  -



This sampler was to be THEIR sampler

therefore, they could

*  Work the complete sampler in one colour
(either with an overdyed thread  or  a solid coloured thread  or  shades of solid coloured threads)

*  Work their family members names as initials only  or  complete names  or  a combination of both

*  Add the dates of birth of their family members

This project began on the 1st of September 2016 and finished on the 1st of February 2017

  • This project as a "progressive" sampler has now closed
    but the complete sampler design may be purchased from Heirlooms
    after the 31st of March 2017

    It is possible to stitch this design 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
