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.

A subversive sampler with a truthful message. Don’t let them grind you down! Let them know you’re the bigger person by displaying this proudly and then ignoring them – and they won’t have the fun of getting a rise out of you!

Small and simple – a poppy for Remembrance Day.

Coming 14th November
Another subversive sampler that gets round overtly cussing by utilising computer keyboard symbols in lieu of letters. Charted for two colours (red and blue) but could be stitched in just one, or in as many as you like. Tell the world exactly what it can do as you display it with pride!
I have seven freebie designs for your own fundraising efforts or just for little gifts to raise awareness, but there is also the What Cancer Cannot Do Charity Blackwork Sampler chart which is available from my Folksy Store, with all proceeds going to Cancer Research UK. I’ve also listed some stitched goodies for sale at the store and again, all proceeds are going to charity. Even if you’re not a stitcher, you can visit my Just Giving page and donate a small amount f you wish. Although it’s no longer October, the fight against cancer continues!
Rules For Life SAL Group
If you’re stitching my Rules For Life sampler (available from my Folksy store HERE), you might like to join the Facebook stitch-along group. There are quite a few people stitching it right now in so many different ways – the range of fabrics and flosses is stunning.
