Jenefer Gilbert 1818 from Hands Across the Sea Samplers

    Stitch count 229 wide x 333 high.

    Nicola tells us that: "Contained within the pretty clover border are birds, trees, hearts, crowns and an abundance of flowers. The sampler’s stunning colour scheme has been inspired by the wildflowers that grow in profusion on the moors, meadows, hedgerows and cliffs of Cornwall".

    The verse reads:
    Swiftly see each moment flies,
    See and learn be timely wise,
    Every moment shortens day,
    Every pulse bears time away,
    Thus thy every heaving breath
    Waft thee on to certain death,
    Seize the moments as the fly,
    Know to live and learn to die.

    The 24 page chart is in a booklet format and has been printed in full colour throughout. All the motifs have been counted out for you within the graph, there is no tracing required. The chart comes with a comprehensive stitching guide and stitch diagrams together with historical information about the period the sampler was stitched in.

    The model was stitched on 40 count Sand Dune Lakeside Linen using Au Ver à Soie d’Alger silk thread. A DMC conversion is also provided. Please check the boxes above to have these items added to your order.
