Ann Lockart is a sampler I purchased a few years ago. The original sampler is in extremely poor condition. It has a tremendous amount of thread loss. Ann is being released as an adaptation due to how many assumptions needed to be made during the charting and stitching. When I first charted the sampler where the name was stitched I could only make out the following – “kart age 12 1842”. I referred to the sampler as the Mystery Castle Sampler and contemplated whether or not to include the name section. I always begin at the top left corner so I had plenty of time to contemplate. Once I stitched the sampler to the coral and pink border I knew I had to try to figure out the name. I just couldn’t bear to leave the sampler without the stitcher’s name. I thought I would try one more time to determine whether or not I could make out her name. I broke out my magnifying light and pulled the sampler out of the storage box. Maybe it was a fresh set of eyes looking at it again. However, I prefer to think it was revealed to me, it was almost like completing a puzzle and she finally decided to speak to me. The sampler is definitely Scottish with the reds, greens, family member initials, castle and of course Scottie dogs. I have begun my research and will reveal more as I know it. I feel it is appropriate for this sampler since it began as a mystery.
I hope you enjoy stitching this piece and the mystery it began with as it slowly came back to life.
