Beth tells us: "Are you ready for a vacation? I think we all are, so for 2021 we are heading to the sea for our stitching tour!! The 8 individual Fragments were inspired by antique sailor art, valentines and scrimshaw. Our Tales from the Sea begin as a brilliant sun lights up a stylized ocean. The perfect scene for frolicking whales. We get just a peek as one descends into the frothy depths.
Next, we see a small schooner, called A Pink, pass us by. Pinks were designed for hauling cargo short distances. It doesn't sound like a very comfortable vessel to cross the Atlantic in, especially in the mid-eighteenth century, but for many German Palatinate immigrants, including one of my ancestors, this is how they came to America.Of course there is a complimentary border pattern!! And an alphabet is included for personalization. All eight Fragments will fit into the border pattern, to give these versatile charts another finishing option.
The stitch count for each Individual Fragments are approximately 51 x 51. When all 8 Fragments are stitched together with the border pattern, stitched with border pattern will be 245 W x 125 H .

The free border pattern can be found at Summer House Stitche Workes.
You can choose to stitch each design individually or on one piece of fabric. Each 18" x 27" piece of fabric is enough to stitch the sampler or to stitch all 8 pincushions with 2" finishing allowance.
