A reproduction sampler that may have German origin. Picture above is the original sampler. Stitch count is 338w x 269h.
Gigi R Designs tells us: "An inscription in the center of the sampler says September 4, 1889, W & E. And there is a courting couple from Siebmacher's Model book straight under the inscription, which leads us to think that it has been made to mark an engagement or a wedding."
Reproduction was stitched on 40 count Cocoa hand dyed linen from Weeks Dye Works using hand dyed floss from Gentle Arts Sampler Threads and Classic Colorworks. There are two alternative color lists. One for the faded front side, another for a more bright and colorful back side.
