    Nicola tells us "Each year Hands Across the Sea Samplers publishes a sampler which we consider to be not only beautiful but outstandingly so and worthy to be crowned our Queen of the May.
    We are pleased to present to you Maria Ewin – our Queen of the May for the year 2023.

    Maria Ewin was love at first sight.  She arrived in February 2021 and brought sunshine on a cold winter’s day.  Maria’s colours are beautifully preserved and she was reproduced using the colours on the front of the sampler. "

    Maria was an excellent stitcher.  Her execution was precise and accurate.  It amazes me that at the young age of 11 Maria took such great care with her work.  My impression of Maria is that she was a very organized and disciplined girl.  She shows great attention to detail in the way that she matched her top and bottom borders and then also matched her side borders with perfect symmetry.

    Stitch count is 271 W x 329 H.
