Barbara Ana Designs tells us: "The original sampler is from 1859, maybe Dutch, and was originally stitched with wool on canvas. Although the reproduction was stitched without the border, it is included on the chart. The borders are quite exquisite, with a vertical vine motif contrasting with an intricate fern-like motif running horizontally."
Chart size in stitches (including borders): 259w x 263h. Chart size in stitches (excluding borders): 199w x 223h.
Cross stitch and back stitch. An 18" x 27" piece of linen is enough for either design, but there would be a 2 1/2" allowance given in the width of the design with the borders for framing.
Model was stitched on 40 count linen using cotton floss from DMC. Please check the boxes above to add these items to your order.
