This listing is for a CROSS STITCH PATTERN, not the finished piece.
As I have progressed in years, the stories of my ancestors have grown increasingly of interest to me. And most especially of the women that have gone before me, living their lives, caring for their children, making their piece of the world softer and more beautiful in small or large ways.
This sampler is the first in a series of four, which have been designed to honor my Great-Grandmothers.
Included with the pattern is a complete upper and lower case alphabet so that you can customize this sampler to honor the life or death of someone you love.
There is also an instruction sheet telling you my method of inserting a photograph into the finished sampler.
Stitch Count: 226 x 134
Model stitched over-one on
Zweigart 28ct. Cream linen
which was then stained upon completion.
Using DMC flosses:
167, 221, 223, 225, 842, 926, 3100, 3790, ecru
The lovely frame is an antique.
All of my patterns come with a fully detailed & professional thread chart, color photograph, & my recommendations for floss and fabric. It will arrive in a plastic zip-close envelope for safe keeping.
