Nicola tells us "The moment we saw Anna’s sweet sampler we knew that Hands Across the Sea Samplers had to add her to their portfolio. Whilst acquired by Nicola in England, the sampler, which features two adorable young girls who are either twins or sisters very close in age, was destined for Australia as Sandra has two young granddaughters. Sandra has reproduced the original sampler for one of her granddaughters using the colours found today on the front of Anna’s sampler. This is the sampler that has been charted for you within the pages of this booklet."
The stitches used are cross stitch over one and two threads of linen.
The sampler is suitable for all levels of ability. Stitch count is 266 W x 301 H. The sampler is stitched mainly in cross stitch over 2 linen threads with a small amount of cross stitch over 1 linen thread.
The reproduction model was stitched on 36 count Pecan Butter hand dyed linen from Lakeside Linens using 1 strand of Soie d'Alger silk thread throughout the sampler. A DMC conversion is also provided and is based on 2 strands of floss for 36 count linen.
