Thea tells us “Sweet gentle eyes, a cold wet nose, and silken velvet ears. A heart as big as all outdoors. Best friends throughout the years.
This adorable sampler is dedicated to anyone who loves dogs. In this original sampler, you can see a scene showing a few dogs, both big and small. It was impossible to put all the dog breeds in one sampler, so I chose to create a tribute to dogs in general. I can imagine that your particular dog breed may not be among the dogs on this sampler, so do feel free to change the colouring of one of the dogs at the top to suggest the shape or color of your own precious pet. I made up the verse from my own experiences.. so if you can think of another verse or saying, feel free to substitute wording you might like better. The scene at the bottom is a typical dog park surrounded by a neighbourhood. It can suggest a field outside a town, or a park inside the city. Just the joy of playing or training or interacting with dogs makes us happy! There are a number of specialty stitches to enjoy. There is no Hardanger, but there are three special drawn thread bands to have fun with! The beautiful Bargello at the bottom is a perfect balance with the rest of the sampler."
