I Still Do and Second Chances
The printed version includes both sampler designs. The PDFs are sold individually or together.
What better way to commemorate a milestone anniversary than with a lovely personalized sampler. Twenty years ago I said, “I Do.” In 2007, I was happy and lucky enough to be saying that I still did. A full alphabet and numeral set is included to help you customize this for your special tribute.
But because not everyone needs or wants a large anniversary sampler, I’ve reworked many of the motifs into a smaller all-occasion sampler. These motifs were given a “second chance” outside of their initial romantic setting. This sampler went through many naming iterations and was known for a long time just as that purple sampler.
Stitch count for I Still Do is 300w x 380 h. It was worked in a collection of overdyed reds on 32 count Antique Ivory Belfast linen, two over two.
Stitch count for Second Chances is a more modest 250w x 196h. This one showcases 11 of Carrie’s purple hand-dyed threads on 32 count Light Mocha Belfast linen, two over two. As Carrie's Threads are no longer available, I've updated the chart with substitutions to Weeks Dye Works. This info is also included as a photo here for people with older copies of the chart.
