Chart Review
Ruby Wedding Sampler

For any couple who is about to celebrate their 40th year in blissful wedlock, receiving a special and personal gift from a child, relative or friend would be a treasured moment.

A stitched gift or sampler such as this one from Col's Creations would most likely become a favourite family heirloom.

Taking a closer look at the detail starting from the top, we have a semi border of satin stitch flowers and leaves connected by an intertwining backstitch stem and dotted with Mill Hill beads. The top centre of the design is a hanging Hardanger heart created from blanket stitch, woven bars and doves' eye filling stitch which is in turn surrounded by four red Rhodes hearts.

Moving down the sampler, the central section is framed by two rows of Smyrna Crosses with a back stitch and bead border. Below the top central border we have a row of satin stitch flowers with back stitch leaves. Above the bottom central border a row of ship motifs and satin stitch pads adds to the floral theme. The central section is then completed by a pair of beautiful flowers created from back stitched leaves and elegant queen stitch flower petals. The remaining centre panel is left blanks for you to fill in the recipients names and of course the all important wedding date.

The final lower section of this superb sampler is made from satin stitch hearts nestled in a row of modified kloster blocks with woven bars and doves' eye filling stitches, the entire design is finished with a classic combination of red and white Mill Hill beads.

The sampler could either be finished as a wall hanging or placed in a suitably elegant frame, a beautiful gift for a lucky couple.
