Tree of Life Samplings tells us: "Martha Ann Sheffield, at the age of 8 years old designed and stitched a sampler with the words Fade As A Leaf. I maintained the colors and the verse and much of what she originally did in her sampler, done in 1832. The colors, birds, and the simple verse that is so meaningful is why I bought the sampler. The motifs were changed around a bit, but not too much!"
The stitch count is 136 x 116.
The model was stitched on 32 count hand dyed Aged Saffron linen from Dames of the Needle using hand dyed cotton floss from Gentle Art Sampler Threads. Please check the boxes above to add these items to your order.
