This dainty 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.
Nicola tells us: "Is this sweetest of Little Gems a Mary or a Mabel? Unfortunately, we will never know as the young needlewoker never recorded their full name. They may even be a Matthew or Martin!"
The two graphs included in the download are: A six-page colour symbol graph. A six-page black and white symbol graph. The sampler is stitched entirely in cross stitch over two.
This dainty sampler has been reproduced with a palette of 10 colours from Au Ver à Soie’s range of Soie 100.3. We have provided conversions for Soie d’Alger and DMC.Only one spool or skein of each colour is required.
M.E stitched her sampler with cross stitch over 2 strands of linen. The model was stitched on Legacy Linen in Sycamore Seedpod. The linen on the original sampler is closest in colour to DMC shade 3866.
The project has been rated as suitable for needleworkers of all abilities and would make an ideal “starter” project for those wishing to explore samplers.
Please check the boxes above to have the supplies added to your order.
