Most normal people have been patiently waiting for
spring to arrive, for a tiny ray of sunshine and some
jolly daffodils.  However, Long Dog fans have been
waiting for something else too - a new design.

And here it is - Dankworth.

It measures 125 x 254, comes with DMC and
Gentle Art conversions and costs £9.00.
A full explanation of the title can be found over
on the Long Dog Blog.  Why not have a quick
gander while you're here.

Band of Braves

It always gives me great pleasure to introduce to the world
a brand spanking new Long Dog Sampler and this,
the first in a series of designs for 2016, is no exception.
It rejoices in the name Band of Braves.

This little beauty has vital statistics of 154 x 312 stitches,
is worked entirely (and unusually) in DMC threads
and will cost you a large gold nugget or £12.60 at
your nearest trading post.

2016 is a special year for Long Dog Samplers because
this summer we'll be celebrating twenty years on the trail.
Twenty years of glorious designs in all shapes and sizes
and all the colours of the rainbow too,  So keep coming
back as there's some goodies in store.
