Harbour Village !
“The peace of the hills is about me, and the leisure of the summer clouds is mine...”
This fresh summer sampler embodies all that we love about living life near the water. The top of Harbour Village Sampler shows colourful little houses nestled on the banks of a river or inlet. The fishing pier and canneries, the little boats and kayaks are out on a beautiful summer day. On the distant horizon you can see the snow capped mountains.
In the middle there are a few bands, like the satin waves, blue forget-me-knots, and some drawn thread in varying shades of blue to enhance the summertime feeling. John Burroughs in his essay entitled “The Circuit of the Summer Hills” provided a perfect quote for the middle of this sampler. However, you can easily change these words to suit your own circumstances!
Near the bottom of the sampler, you’ll see the ‘village green’ alive with the people of the town. They are gathered at a summertime barbeque picnic.The kids are playing, moms and dads are chatting and enjoying their outing. Such a happy scene, one we live throughout the summer, especially on national holiday weekends! The lighthouse on the opposite shore and the church at the far left each provide their symbolic ‘safe harbour’ for all the people in the village.
At the bottom you’ll find the last few bands, including a luscious floral band, again in blues, to complete the feeling of summer life and abundance. Like it's companion Christmas Village Sampler, this sampler can be easily stitched in parts, and can be separated for various smaller enjoyable projects. Enjoy all or parts of this sampler to keep your summer alive all year round...
