Item details

This listing is for a CROSS STITCH PATTERN, not for the finished sampler.

I spotted this 200 year old sampler and immediately fell in love. I jumped at the chance to add it to my small but growing collection.

IL started or finished her work in 1817, comprised of a delightful collection of animals in pasture, birds in flight, houses, ponds with swimming swans, and fanciful trees. I had no idea of the detail contained in the faded stitches until I started using a magnifying glass to help me chart the color changes.

It took me two years to get her faded stitches charted, with lots of stops and starts along the way, but that hasn’t stopped me from counting her as a favorite. I hope you find her to be equally enchanting.

I would usually stitch with overdyed threads, but really wanted to avoid the variegation that comes hand in hand with specialty colors for this sampler. I felt that the solid and dependable colors of DMC would give a better interpretation of the antique’s faded appearance.
