Cats !!

To celebrate Hands Across the Sea Samplers’ 3rd birthday and our love of cats we are releasing a new sampler.

Jane’s beautiful Welsh sampler is a delight for the eye, the more you look at her the more you will see! With a wonderful palette of 32 colours Jane filled her sampler with traditional Welsh motifs contained within a stunning floral border. Roses, lilies and convolvulus in full bloom graciously sweep around this beautiful sampler.  Jane diligently stitched pretty vases of flowers such as Ragged Robins from the Lychnis family, and Auriculas in the Primula family, two sailings ships, birds and butterflies abound, and two beautiful bowls of fruit.

The moment we saw Jane’s cats we knew that Hands Across the Sea Samplers had to reproduce this sampler for ailurophiles to stitch. Cats appear in two scenes. To the bottom left a cat quietly watches two “merchs fach” (young girls) contemplate their day but it is at the bottom right where they really make their presence known.  Two very large silver tabbies are seen frolicking with a ball in the garden. For us they are the highlight of this wonderful sampler.
