Stitchy Saturdays – Subversive Samplers from Kincavel Krosses

Each Saturday, I will feature either something I’m currently stitching, something I’ve just finished stitching, or something I’ve just designed. I hope you’ll all join me in displaying some of your own work and leaving a link to your post in the comments below.


I’ve been designing some more subversive samplers and thought I’d share them with you all…

Design: Laughing Sampler (107w x 107h)
I spotted this quote online and just couldn’t resist designing a little subversive sampler using it. As it’s quite a long quote, I used a fairly simple lacy border, so the focus is on the words. This would look great hanging in a hallway to remind you keep laughing!

Design: If at first… (151w x 89h)
This fun little sampler has a pretty, delicate border to counterbalance the bold lettering. Perfect for your desk at the office.

Design: Who Died? (103w x 53h)
Another phrase that used to get bandied around my office. The bold border means you look twice before you realise what it says!

Design: Attitude… (107w x 43h)
This will be published on 12th June.
Another for the office where continual interruptions can cause attitudes to slip…

Design: Fan-Bloody-Tastic (103w x 49h)
This will be published on 14th June.
Sarcasm at its best – this phrase frequently comes out of my mouth!

Design: Bookstore… (86w x 40h)
This will be published on 16th June)
This fun little subversive sampler would work equally well as a bookmark…

I’ve designed them all in monochrome, and I think they’d look great stitched in variegated floss – just choose your favourite colours! However, if you’d like to stitch them using several colours, please feel free to change them to suit your tastes.

All of these designs are available for free from Kincavel Krosses for personal use. Please don’t sell the designs, but you may sell your finished pieces for charity if you so wish (but please, not commercially!). If you’d like to share them, please direct your friends to my Kincavel Krosses blog where they can be downloaded quickly and easily, along with many other designs.

  1. Love the bookstore one, which you obviously designed just for me, so I must stitch it when it’s available and put it on my craft room wall.
    I’m a bit worried though. How did you know? I mean, have you seen me? In a bookstore, that is. ‘Cause that’s exactly what I do *grin*

    • Aha! You have discovered my stalker-ish tendancies, Carole! 😉

      I found the quote online and it described me to a tee, so i just HAD to use it for a design. I’ll look forward to seeing your sampler when it’s stitched! 🙂
