Spring has Sprung!

Welcome dear needlefolk friends!

I planned on posting a new pattern,
but because it was also my birthday, too many 
surprises caught me off guard!

So today is the day to share 
the new pattern, here is a sneak peek...

"Spring Delivery"
©2019 Scattered Seed Samplers

Model is stitched on 32ct WDW "Straw" linen,
using overdyed thread.

This is a "Companion Sampler" to last year's spring release...
"Spring Gathering" C2018

Here they are side by side...
With my birthday falling on the first day of Spring,
growing up my mom loved calling me; "her little Chickity"!

This was my inspiration for these two companion 
Springtime Samplers!

Available through Etsy...
