Ann Webb 1829 ~ A Little Gem from Hands Across the Sea Samplers

    This delightful sampler is brought to you as part of a series of “Little Gems” that are available as a PDFdownload by Hands Across the Sea Samplers.

    At only nine years of age Ann finished her delightful sampler. The young girl chose a delicious palette, she had a good eye selecting very soft yet colourful threads. She diligently worked at her sampler covering her linen with an assortment of motifs including two billy goats. The verse she carefully stitched is the first of the nine Beatitudes of Matthew 5:3. “Blessed are the poor in spirit for theirs is the kingdom of heaven”. We do not know if Ann was rich or poor in spirit, with the passing of time all that remains today is her childhood needlework.

    The design is suitable for needleworkers of all abilities. The stitches used are cross stitch over 1, 2, and 4 threads, together with a few Algerian eyelets.

    Included in the pdf download are four graphs.
    Graph 1 ~ A twenty-page colour block and symbol graph.
    Graph 2 ~ A one-page colour block and symbol graph intended to be viewed/used on your tablet, phone, or PC.
    Graph 3 ~ A twenty-page black and white symbol graph.
    Graph 4 ~ A one-page black and white symbol graph intended to be viewed/used on your tablet, phone, or PC.

    Stitch count is 313 W x 295 H.

    Ann’s beautiful sampler has been reproduced with a palette of sixteen colours from the Soie 100/3. We have provided conversions for Au Ver à Soie’s range of Soie d’Alger and DMC.

    We have suggested 32, 40 and 45 count linen versions for you to stitch this lovely sampler on.
