May I formally introduce

Ann Robinson 1800


Ann chose to stitch her sampler on Linsey Woolsey which is a very rich dark green.  I chose to chart her in 32ct Wichelt Copper Penny with Gloriana Silk Threads.  Using just a small palette of colors; Honey Bronze, Pecan, Birch Brown, Brick, Vanilla and Antique Black.  A conversion for DMC is also included.  The stitch count is 236w x 291h giving you a wide spectrum of finished sizes using a variety of linen counts.  

The entire sampler EXCEPT the verse, is stitched over 2 threads.  The verse has a combination of capital letters over stitched over 2, while the rest of the letters/wording is stitched over 1.

Her verse reads:

Virtues the chiefest beauty of the mind
The noble ornament of human kind
Virtues ours ar gard and giding star
That stirs up Reason when our senses err

Have a wonderful stitching day!!  Thanks for stopping by :)
