New design, Serendipity Sampler #1 - all cross stitch - 121 x 118 stitch count
The snow is almost gone on Gracewood and the hoop greenhouse is fully loaded with trays full of seedlings, thanks to Terry! This second year with the greenhouse he's making even better use of it this spring, AND, is planning on building a second and bit larger one by our larger hugelbed garden beds.
So the growing season is getting a jump start here thanks to being able to heat greenhouse, and my attention has to go towards planning what to grow and where to plant it after our last frost date - May 15th.
Knowing my design time is going to be more limited for awhile I wanted to publish this latest pattern, Serendipity Sampler #1. What is ‘Serendity”? Where did this word come from?
It has a great origin – coined by author, Horace Walpole, suggested by The Three Princes of Serendip, the title of a fairy tale in which the heroes ‘were always making discoveries, by accidents and sagacity, of things they were not in quest of’. Don’t you just love that? Well that is pretty much what happens when I design a pattern. I start with a general idea and find as I go along that I end up in places I hadn’t thought I was going. So I introduce my Serendity Samplers and hope you’ll enjoy the journey into unexpected things you might find along the way.
