First Release for 2013 ~ My Garden Journal series

Happy Friday! I'm so excited to write this post! I hope you enjoy my first release for 2013.

My Garden Journal series
Stitched on 32 count Lambswool linen using Gentle Art Sampler Threads.
The chart of the cover is a freebie. You can downlaod it here.

To combine them to create a scrapbook journal. I stitched them individually on 32 count linen. You can choose whatever fabric color and count you prefer. Stitch count for each individual designs is 125 width by 74 height and all parts are measured the same size.

Approximate finished stitching area for individual designs:
28 count ~ 8 7/8 inches width by 5 1/4 inches height
32 count ~ 7 7/8 inches width by 4 5/8 inches height
36 count ~ 7 inches width by 4 1/8 inches height
40 count ~ 6 1/4 inches width by 3 3/4 inches height

 January's Snowdrop
First part of My Garden Journal.
Model was stitched on 32 count French Lace linen using
DMC, Gentle Art Sampler Threads and Weeks Dye Works.

February's Primrose
Second part of My Garden Journal.
Model was stitched on 32 count White Chocolate linen using
DMC, Gentle Art Sampler Threads and Weeks Dye Works.

I also stitched the entire series together on 40 count Lambswool linen from Wichelt Imports. If you decide to stitch the entire Garden Journal in a group design, it will have a stitch count of 379 width by 302 height.

Approximate finished stitching area for group design:
32 count ~ 23 3/4 inches width by 18 7/8 inches height
36 count ~ 21 inches width by 16 3/4 inches height
40 count ~ 19 inches width by 15 1/8 inches height

Horizontally, they are 3 parts of design flow one into the next, there are two stitches in between each part. Vertically, there are four rows and skipping two stitches in between each row.

This was a preview of the series. The charts will be with the distributors until this February.

Happy stitching!

LOVE it! Going to put these on my wish list and perhaps even get a SAL started later in the year with these. (I'm over-committed right now.)

Well done!
