New Sampler by Mary

Hi Everyone,

I just wanted to share a new reproduction sampler (teaching piece) I just got back from the framer. This sampler was original stitched by Mary while at the Royal School of Needlework. I purchased it a few months ago. I designed it into a slightly smaller version on 40 ct. over 1. It can always be stitched over 2. I just think it is so petite and colorful. What do you think?

Charlotte Lamb

Wanted to share Charlotte Lamb. Here's a picture of her beautiful sampler. I like the Bargello stitching at the very bottom it makes this sampler unique. Charlotte wrought her sampler in 1816 dated January 3.

New Samplers

I just purchased a new Scottish Sampler. I love Scottish Samplers! This one was done in the 18th century and is by Margaret Duncan Dullatur. I will post pictures soon.

I also purchased an "Advice Sampler" by Esther Caton from 1839. It has a beautiful basket of flowers.Off too chart.

Hope your year is going good!
