Casa Cenina

I am so excited to announce for the international stitchers, that Casa Cenina now carries the Traveling Stitcher patterns!  There have been many requests from overseas, so now you are in luck!  All the shops that carry my patterns are happy to ship to anyone, now there are even more options!!  I look forward to working with them, they are fast to respond to emails and are very friendly!!  Thank you Casa Cenina!!

A & E Long and Lean Model

I have had several requests to see the model version of A & E Long and Lean, so without further delay, here it is~
Stitched on Lakeside Linens Vintage Pearled Barley with the called for silks.  I just love the variety of motifs, colors and the width!!  What a fun sampler to add to our A & E walls :)

Ane Kirstine Larsen

One of the most exciting things about recreating an antique sampler is not only the surprise of the revealed colors on the reverse side; but to have the opportunity to use today's glorious options to restitch these beauties.  Choosing silks for my patterns is not done on purpose, but out of habit.  I LOVE stitching in silk, the pure luster, the feel the outcome :)  I wanted to share the colors I have chosen for Ane..  So many gorgeous choices are available, its hard to choose, but it must be done LOL!  (of course a DMC conversion is also given on the pattern.)
Also, alot of inquiries, both Ane Kirstine Larsen and A & E Long and Lean are stitched entirely in full cross over 2.  I would love to see it stitched over 1 though!!!  Anyone interested?!

A & E Colors

It is so exciting all the response these 2 lovelies (Ane and A & E) have been getting!!!  I wanted to give you a picture of the colors I chose to stitch A & E Long and Lean with.
I love using over-dyed threads; I tend to use silks, but I also use cottons.  They really give the added depth to our samplers when using these threads, making our newly stitched samplers, similar to the these calls over 100 years ago.  Having the variety of supplies that we do today gives each and every sampler stitched its own character and also, unique.
