Fall Needlework Expo 2021 release.
This is the ninth release in the Antique Sampler of the Month series being released by Cross Stitch Antiques for 2021.
Ten various alphabets adorn this unique unfinished sampler at the bottom of which a lone woman sits serenely in a long work dress with an apron. She grasps a hoop, perhaps her needlework or quilting, and gazes at a pond where two quacking ducks keep her company. Hemstitched and pieced together perhaps due to a shortage of available linen, the stitcher did exquisitely fine work with silks on 46 count linen over two threads. Sadly she left her sampler unfinished, with no name, place or date to identify her. The style, multiple alphabets and types of motifs place it circa 1810-1850s.
Stitch Count: 330 W x 236 H.
Model stitched on 40 count hand dyed linen which is not available to us. We have suggested an alternate hand dyed choice as well as the silks from Needlepoint Inc. Conversions to DMC Cotton floss are included.
Please check the boxes above to add the chart, linen and threads to your order.
