June 5, 2020 - we have heard from our supplier of the silk thread that is called for in this sampler and they are waiting for shipment of many of these colors from France. You are welcome to order the supplies from us now as we fill orders in the order that they are received but please note that we are optimistically hoping for a mid July shipping date.
Nicola tells us: "Ann is a beautiful little Welsh sampler worked entirely in cross stitch over 2 threads, with the name of the church worked over 1 thread. Ann has chosen a palette of bright colours that pop out from the linen. The sampler is framed by a simple but very effective border using sumptuous red and duck egg blue silks, and she continues to use some very vibrant colour combinations."
The design area is 178 stitches (w) x 217 stitches (h).
