Elizabeth Chesters 1843 ~Antique Sampler of the Month May '21 ~ Cross Stitch Antiques

    This is the fifth release in the Antique Sampler of the Month series being released by Cross Stitch Antiques for 2021.

    These two samplers, so very similar in design and motifs, must have been done by relatives, sharing not only the same last name and year stitched but also the same pattern, thread and linen colors.

    At first thinking they perhaps were sisters, a search revealed the discovery that they most probably were mother and daughter. The mottos chosen on each are reflectively appropriate sentiments for a mother and child. It is a cheery thought to envision the pair stitching together, the daughter learning in imitation alongside her mum, while being given the freedom of her own creative expression.

    Stitch count is 161 x 170.

    Model was stitched on 36 count Eureka hand dyed linen from Fox and Rabbit and stitched with silk threads from Soie d'Alger.

    Please check the boxes above to add the chart, linen and threads to your order.
