Nicola tells us "Frances’ sampler is a delight for the eye. Originally intended as a travel project for Nicola, the sampler became her main project from the moment the last stitch was charted. Some samplers call so loudly that you cannot ignore them. We hope that she will call loudly to you, too."
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 191 W x 163 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.
