Remember the tease from several weeks ago? Many of you have asked when I will release that pattern, and finally, here it is!
This sampler was inspired by a girl I know who is learning to stitch samplers. The vining flower border is similar to one that I saw once on an antique... I just love how fresh and Spring-y it looks.
The quote was also taken from an old sampler. It reads:
"Lord let the Son-shine of Thy face
So clear my Eyes and Clense my heart
That being seasoned with thy grace
My soul may tast how sweet Thou art"
I stitched the model on 28 count even-weave linen; finished size is approximately 15 by 13 inches, and the stitch count is 220 by 200.
Isn't the frame gorgeous? It was made by the talented people at Valley House Primitives, and I just love how it enhances the sampler.
The pattern comes with a fully detailed & professional thread chart, a color photograph, and instructions on how to stain the finished sampler. It will come enclosed in a plastic zip-close envelope for safe keeping.
I have a handful of them listed in my etsy shop, but you can also contact me directly to buy if you don't have an account there... firstname.lastname@example.org
