The AH - 1808 - Sampler

The AH - 1808 - Sampler
c.1990 Threads Through Time

Chart Available HERE.
Per the information included with the graph: "AH used ten soft colors of silk thread in her sampler which was embroidered on 35-count linen .... measuring 7 1/2" wide by 6 3/4" high."

Stitched with DMC floss per Color Key on the Pattern. I used scraps of 32-count Antique Ivory.

I stitched a small portion of the floral border -- and added birds from the chart. (bird/flower squares.) These squares match my Lanell scissors!

Barbara : Clothespin dolls are charming & quite easy to make. I will have to put up a post [on my Other Blog] about the dolls made by my Mom & her friend, Jean. Stay tuned.

Wendy : Tabletoppers can be washed. AND, my boyz + pets have put this to the test already. I've washed them in my machine without any problems.

The birds do seem to match your scissors. Good job. This is a pretty sampler.

I will stay tuned! I'm envisioning a little row of them on a high, narrow shelf in my kitchen.... ;)
