Margaret and Margaret, Inc. freebie and site

Thank you to all who recognized who the designer of this piece could be. I found their website and wrote the owner of the story and how she had touched my life. YES, it's a Margeret and Margeret, Inc. designed sampler!!!! I fell in love with her samplers. She has over 60 or more. She has been designing for 26 years and still maintains the tradional Colonial/ Shaker type samplers throughout. Window shop her site by clicking below:



here are the links to her gorgeous Colonial/Shaker patterns, which include all kinds of samplers.

I found out she started designing in 1985 and this one in fact was designed that year.
1985 is also the year my firstborn son went to Heaven so even extra meaningful to me.

This morning I went to her site and she has a GREAT freebie.
She also has other samplers including a Jane Austen sampler, Adam and Eve, marriage, birth, samplers etc. Her prices are very reasonable. Very reasonable!

It will definitely be one for me to celebrate this Holiday. It is in PDF format and just print and get your needles ready for a VERY pretty Christmas ornie. The way the wreath on the door of the house is designed is just too cute! She put this in the Just Cross stitch magazine in 2010.

I hope this finds you cozy and warm in your heart and soul,
Jennifer

  2. Jennifer: Thank=you for sharing he information, in the past I have done a couple of her designs.
    That was before I started blogging, I have no pictures, I can attest to the fact she does have a knack to design, I love colonial designs.
    Blessings to you.

  5. Hey Joe,

    just click on the words of the freebie and it opens in PDF format. Takes a couple of minutes to load. Or you can directly on the website and click on the first sampler, Peace on Earth.
    I tried it again it works here. Hope that helps
