Spring in Italy Sampler Links

Quite a few new readers (Hello! I’m glad you’re here!) have written to ask me where they can find ‘more’ of the Spring in Italy Sampler. It’s a bit complicated since four of the articles were posted on Needlen’thread when I was a guest blogger for Mary Corbet. So, to make it easy to find everything in one place, I’ve posted those four articles here today. If you scroll down the page you will find the articles. I didn’t send email notification of all four articles. I didn’t want your mailboxes overflowing with The Unbroken Thread emails!

At the end of this article you will find a complete list of all the Spring in Italy Sampler posts.

Originally I had intended to design a border for the sampler but then changed my mind. Why? Because when I finished the sampler, the designs weren’t all perfectly lined up in the grid pattern the way I thought I’d laid them out. (lesson learned). However, flying back to Berlin I decided I will design a border and stitch it up with one of the individual motifs. I’ll design it so it can be used as a border with the whole sampler (because you probably laid yours out properly!) I’ll be writing about that soon – after I’ve unpacked and slept!

Here’s the list: Enjoy the articles if you haven’t had a chance to read them yet. And be sure to download the patterns if you want to use any of them.

(Naturally, please don’t sell the designs or anything you stitch up using them as they are copyrighted.)

From “Inspiration” to “All Done!” here they are!
