Kimberly Mueller from Willow Hill Samplings
is a real self-taught person: she learnt how to cross stitch all on her own, when she was just a young girl, "taking up" floss and needle and following the step-by-step instructions of a needlework magazine. And just like a sort of modern Cinderella, from a shop-assistant in an haberdashery shop, Kimberly has turned herself into a designer, devoting all her - little - spare time to the creation of projects that are traditional and enjoyable at the same time. With the help of Sherry, from The Gathering Place
, Kimberly took gradually heart and started to sell her charts.
In spite of her young age, Kimberly loves classical stitching projects, which, however, she always adds an original and modern touch. She has dedicated this tradition and her country, America, a series named "Birth of a Nation", including one of her latest and most beloved patterns, called Crossing The Delaware
, which Kimberly celebrates the history of the USA, with a little patriotism with.
But besides history and Victorina themes, Willow Hill Samplings
also proposes fairy tales and short children novels, matching ancient and abstract atmospheres, such as in this Little Mermaid Sampler
portraying a little old-fashioned mermaid.
So, you're going to find a lot of subjects and a lot of creativity in these projects from Willow Hill Samplings
, but... Be careful!, to perfectly stitch her patterns, Kimberly recommends flax: that's the ideal fabric for the tiny and well outlined subjects from this brand.
