Yesterday I chose my 2014 Name Sampler Design Competition winner! That lucky person is Melonie Pickering from Sheffield here in the UK and she wins the first kit of her design. Melonie’s entry said:
“I’d love my name done in the colours of the flowers used on a canal boat….and maybe a little canal boat and some roses…so lots of strong colours, ie, red, yellow, greens, etc…..”
It is such a unique suggestion and one that instantly got me excited about designing. Most of my samplers are aimed at young children but this one is bound to become a popular choice for older generations and those with a passion for the gorgeous canal boats that chug up and down the canals here in the UK.
I have already designed a bespoke canal boat sampler for Melonie’s husband so this one for her will make a great matching pair!
I can’t wait to get designing this one so watch this space when it’s ready.
