Take Time for Friends from the Take Time Series. A wonderful reminder to tend and care for our relationships. As Jeannette says…

The need for friendship is the single thread that we all have running through us. To stitch, laugh, and work on our pieces in someone’s company; there is no crisis too big for stitchers to overcome, as long as you face it together. Treasure your friends and take time for them. I hope that in this small way through this design we can make our friends feel extraordinary.

The sampler contains 11 boxes, done in a palette of over-dyed silks. Many “specialty” stitches are used – there are diagrams and written instructions for all of them, making this design approachable – if you have patience (and Google), your initial skill level with specialty stitches will not be important.
