Are you a Samplermaker?

design by Lori Brechlin of Notforgotten Farm
Are you a Samplermaker?
Lori Brechlin of Notforgotten Farm created a wonderful forum for Samplermakers to get together and enjoy what we love most ~ needlework. From time to time there are free patterns and needlework challenges posted.

That is where I found this lovely design that I wanted to stitch right away.
I think it is the wandering vines that got to me ;)
If you would like to be a Samplermaker, simply contact Lori at to join the fun.
“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples. “As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love. I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. You are my friends if you do what I command. I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you. This is my command: Love each other.
~John 15: 5 - 17
Blessings, Patti
