Who would have thought ? A few months ago, samplers aren't my kind of projects. But after seeing a few of these from various group. Now I'm getting more into it. I have started Rosemarkie, my recent stash acquisition include Red Velvet, St Georges, St Germaine, The World of S - A & S, Celtic Banner just to name a few. I also have St Sylvestre on order. This one I already have the fabric + silk for. I really like working with variated silk on them and let the colours take effects. I have to stop my self very frequently as I seem to go into buying spree too often.

I have been communicating with Marc Davis regarding my new love of samplers. He is very much into it as anyone who know him. We noticed there is no support group for Long Dog, which my Rosemarkie is from. So we decided to create one. What a success we had with it. Julia Line, the designer is in the group as well. Within 1 week of it formation, we had more than 100 members and we keep growing. That is a few weeks now. Here is a link to the group page.
