This is a little sneak preview of Elisabeth the new Vierlande Goes to Ackworth sampler which will be part of the Vierlande II motif album + 10 samplers download for release shortly. Vierlande medallions are the nearest to Ackworth School medallions and I thought it would be interesting to see how an 'Ackworth' sampler composed of Vierlande motifs would appear - and this is it. It is a project you can stitch in a weekend. (Do you remember, the Rational Dame was one of the reading books at Ackworth School?) In fact there are so many lovely items which will be coming in the next few weeks we sha'n't know where to turn. I had someone email me asking if I wanted our giveaways listed on a special blog for giveaways and I decided: no, these are for our family of passionate needle-lovers and not for just anyone looking for a freebie. But, I digress. There is something really special coming this weekend, I wish I could tell you - but it is a very special surprise - you will find it quite époustouflant......but shhhh don't tell anyone, this is just for us!
