Oh my word...she is so talented and I love all of her Samplers that she stitched. You are so lucky Paulette to go and see her beautiful stitched Samplers.

I love her stockings too. They are really cute.

Take care & Happy Stitching

Thanks for sharing all your pictures of the beautiful samplers and ornaments!


Absolutely amazing!!! Thanks for sharing Darlene's amazing work with us!


That is just an amazing collection of samplers. What a lucky lady you are to have a visit. The stockings are just wonderful. I think someone would have had to pick me up off the floor. I would have fainted. Thanks for sharing your pictures.

I just received my issue of Just Cross Stich Magazine. And who was the featured designer? The wonderful Paulette. What a nice surprise.


Thank you for posting such an amazing collecion of samplers. I am enjoying trying to work out the names of some of these beautiful things.

Darlene's collection is just awe inspiring

What a lovely lady and just gorgeous and prolific stitcher, they are all stunning! Are my eyes deceiving me, but are none of the samplers framed under glass?


Darlene came to speak at my guild a while back and her lecture was really wonderful. Of course we were all amazed with the photos of her stitched A&Es and even her ornaments. WOW!!!

Absolutely breathtaking! Such an inspiration.

Paulette would you please forgive me for not commenting in SO VERY LONG?!?!?
It seems that one reader I use to browse blogs picks your lovely blog up but the other doesn't...and guess which one I've been using for the past few months? Oh gosh...I'm so sorry...I was just about to email you and ask if there was something terrible going on that you weren't blogging anymore.
Thank you for sharing these wonderful samplers with us. Her home is a masterpiece in itself.
