Thy Love Divine ~ A Little Gem from Hands Across the Sea Samplers

    This vibrant sampler is one of a series of “Little Gems” that are available as a .pdf download from Hands Across the Sea Samplers.

    The sampler, designed and stitched by Nicola as a Valentine’s Day gift for her husband, has been inspired by samplers in her private collection. Nicola chose colours that are taken from her husband’s favourite shirt. The focus of the sampler is the sentiment:

    Thy love divine that made me thine, Will keep me thine forever

    Over the years and centuries, Valentine’s Day has been a religious celebration, an ancient ritual day, and a commercial holiday. All that change means that the meaning of Valentine’s Day is truly whatever you want it to be!
    The sampler would also make a gorgeous wedding sampler, a sampler to commemorate a wedding anniversary or just to celebrate love.

    Within this download you will receive:
    Graph 1 ~ A six-page colour chart.
    Graph 2 ~ A six-page black and white symbol chart.

    Thy Love Divine has been stitched with a palette of nine colours from Au Ver à Soie’s range of Soie d’Alger. We have provided conversions for Soie 100.3 and DMC.

    Model was stitched on 56 count Confederate Grey hand dyed linen from Weeks Dye Works and stitched with silk thread from Soie 100/3.
    We have suggested 32, 36 and 46 count linen versions for you to stitch this lovely sampler on.

    The stitches used are cross stitch over 2 threads and rice stitch. Your version of Thy Love Divine should be whatever you want it to be, so that it reflects your taste and is “yours”. You can choose either linen, Linaida, or Aida in the count and colour that appeals to you.
