Chart includes 7 Companion Smalls for the Nancy Alden 1795 Reproduction Sampler.
Erica Michaels tells us: "As I reproduced the Nancy Alden sampler, I knew right away there was much more within the design she stitched. I’ve created seven different smalls, all from motifs within the sampler and using the same alphabets. She might have had similar things in her own sewing basket!"
The pinkeep was stitched on 30 count silk gauze, the bird hornbook design on 40 count silk gauze and the remainder of the smalls were stitched on 32 count hand dyed Lentil linen from Lakeside Linens. All of the smalls were stitched using a combination of hand dyed cotton and wool floss. The smalls were finished using 3 different colors of Weeks Dye Works wool fabric.
A mini hornbook from Retromantic Fripperies is available for purchase to finish the hornbook design.
