*NEW* George & Martha

Found in two completely different locations, within a few months of each other, there is no historical connection between these two sets of silhouettes. However, there was just no way I could split them up once brought together, so you get two versions of the same colonial couple in one booklet.

I chose to only stitch models of one set of silhouettes, and to make them in miniature, and absolutely love how they turned out!

Martha & George Miniatures
Stitch Count: 41 x 63 each
Models stitched over-one with one strand on R&R Reproductions 28ct Old Mill Java.
Using Weeks Dye Works’ 3900 Kohl.
Frames found at a local craft store.

Martha & George Originals
Stitch Count: 41 x 63 each
Stitched over-three with two strands on approximately 40 count linen.

George & Martha Originals
Stitch Count: 41 x 57 each
Stitched over-three with two strands on approximately 48 count linen, leaving one thread in between crosses.

This design is now available in my etsy shop, and will be going out to my distributors and the shops on my automatic shipments list soon. If you prefer to bypass etsy and order directly through me, you can send me an email: beth@heartstringsamplery.com
