Hoity Toity

I can finally put you all out of my misery with this colourful new design.
Never before in the whole history of Long Dog have I experienced
such anticipation of a sampler.

"When is it coming out?" you politely asked while some of you took
a more direct stance and simply demanded point blank the release date.

NOW|


So here it is - HOITY TOITY (or the Two Posh Peacocks as I've
been calling it).  Breathe in it's beauty to your very soul and then
nip off and order a copy pronto.


The bottom border was inspired by the beautiful ceiling paintings at
Ranworth Church which is only a five minute drive away from
the Lock Up.  You couldn't help be inspired by art such as this and I
count myself lucky to live in a county so cram-packed with ancient churches.


This was the little snippet I posted many moons ago that got you
all so fired up to see the finished article.  Has it been worth the wait?


And here are the two naughty boys themselves up on the roof
strutting their stuff.  You wouldn't believe the mess they make.


And in conclusion a very naff photo even by my standards of the
exquisite finished piece.  It measures 197 x 282 stitches,
costs £16.20 for the brace (that's £8.10 per bird) and is available as a pdf
download direct from me by simply emailing jools@longdogsampler.com
or from all good LNS across the planet in paper form.

So don't forget LSO|
(Look - Salivate - Order)
Off you go.

  1. Some of your trademark motifs are there but the colours are new and exquisite. The dense stitching in the border must have kept you busy for a very long time. Really lovely!

  2. My word this is over the top fabulous and certainly a MUST have right now. The colors compliment each other beautifully and those peacock are stunning. Thanks

  4. It's really quite beautiful. I must say it again, your talent leaves me in awe...speechless.I sometimes,think that I could design a chart,how hard could it be? Ha ha, maybe I'm not getting enough of the vitamins or sleep.After not one but two attempts of putting what my brain sees onto a grid, I wake up and realize I'm a idiot,at least I can stitch someone else's vision. I hope you have a great year full of colour and much love.

  5. Oh. My. Goodness!!!

    Definitely your 'magnum opus' (even more than "Death by..."! just my humble opinion...)

    So, so lovely, it takes my breath away, those COLORS! This is a must stitch for me. (good-bye, rest of my life. Good-bye friends, good-bye shopping trips, good-bye reading, so long housework (yay), see ya around sometime (maybe in 2018. Unless Julia comes out with another new design that is...) I'm off to stitch 'hoity toity'!
