Two more contributions to the global sampler have arrived.

Kim Beamish from Canada has designed a nice little tulip.

The tulip is not just one of the main motifs of Schwalm whitework. It also grows in many countries around the world and delights people there who are eagerly waiting for the beginning of spring. So Kim too.

She wrote: “Since it is Spring (actually it is snowing here today as I stitch this), I thought of the tulips that are just starting to come out.”

Waltraud Kater from Australia thinks the idea of the global sampler is fantastic. For this, the embroiderer and quilter happily pushed aside the work on thirteen charity quilts.

She wrote – roughly translated: “Floral designs are my favorite embroidery motifs, so it was not difficult to contribute to the Global Schwalm sampler.”

She hopes for a bombastic response and is looking forward to the big picture.

You can see more contributions in Update 8.
