Jessie Watson 1816 ~ A Little Gem from Hands Across the Sea Samplers

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

    This delightful sampler stitched on 24ct linen with wool by Jessie Watson charmed us from the first glance. Unfortunately, Jessie did not include a date or a location on her sampler, so we have not been able to identify her in family history records. However, we do know of another sampler that has an almost identical house and heart that was stitched in 1816.

    Sometimes when researching a sampler, we have to look to the motifs for clues as to the identity of its young maker. We believe Jessie’s sampler to be Scottish.

    Jessie’s sampler is suitable for needleworkers of all abilities. The stitches used are cross stitch over two threads, eyelet stitch and three satin stitches.

    Stitch count is 133 W x 199 H.

    Jessie’s sampler has been stitched with a palette of eleven colours from Au Ver à Soie’s range of Soie 100.3. We have provided conversions for Soie d’Alger, Fine D’Aubusson wool and DMC.

    The model was stitched on Legacy Linen’s Foxtail Millett, a 45 ct linen. The corresponding colours in Legacy Linen’s range would be Corn Tassel in 37 ct and Victoria Sponge Cake in 30 ct.

    If you wish to stitch your sampler on 24 or 25 ct linen with wool we would recommend Au Ver a Soie’s range of Fine d’Aubusson. Call us for assistance with this choice.
