One of the most exciting things about recreating an antique sampler is not only the surprise of the revealed colors on the reverse side; but to have the opportunity to use today's glorious options to restitch these beauties. Choosing silks for my patterns is not done on purpose, but out of habit. I LOVE stitching in silk, the pure luster, the feel the outcome :) I wanted to share the colors I have chosen for Ane.. So many gorgeous choices are available, its hard to choose, but it must be done LOL! (of course a DMC conversion is also given on the pattern.)
Also, alot of inquiries, both Ane Kirstine Larsen and A & E Long and Lean are stitched entirely in full cross over 2. I would love to see it stitched over 1 though!!! Anyone interested?!
