Free Mystery Sampler Stitch A Long * Please JOIN the summer fun

Happy day to all of you.
I have seen so many people making mystery samplers and I thought I would make one for you to work on this summer.
This is a free STITCH A LONG. I would love for you to join. 
PLANS: Class Prep will be gathering all of your supplies and I have a list posted for you below. 
The stitch a long will start on June 1st  with a 1/4 of the design being  posted for you to download.
The theme is summer and it is surrounded by flowers (that was a hint) :)
Here is a list of supplies you will need:
DMC floss
Ecru
159
160
500
502
503
730
829
830
831
832
833
834
961
962
3371
3716
The Stitch Count is 56 X 84
I am working mine on 28ct linen over (2) and the design will measure 4X6 and will fit perfect in a 5X7 frame. (Always thinking of you)
I will be adding specialty stitches but if you prefer you can always just cross stitch your design and you can also use 14ct Aida cloth or whatever you would like.
For the colors of 961, 962, and 3716 they are the 3 shades of pink that I choose but if you would prefer to change the flower colors to match a special room please do!! Those are the floss numbers and symbols that you would substitute. (They are also BOLD and UNDERLINED on the floss list)
One more thing you can pull your floss and pick a fabric color by laying them on top of different fabrics. The peek below might be helpful. You can also wait until you can download the Stitch A Long 1/4 mystery chart.

I am so excited to share this free chart with you as a summer project and check back every Friday in June for the pieces of the puzzle.
I would also love to start a page to share your pictures of your progress. So if you are going to follow just leave a message so that  maybe you can find some other friends that will be stitching it also .
If you would like send me photos by email and I will share them on a special page for us along with a link to your blog.

Who knows maybe there will be another for Halloween?
So thank you for following me and I hope to hear from you, please join and pass the word to your friends

  18. How much fun is that? I can't wait!

    Donna, when I came to your page I was warned by Google that your page links to a site infected with malware. If you would remove the photo linking to "christian women online" (the photo with Proverbs 3:5) it would get rid of the warning.
