This piece was inspired by a sampler found in a blanket chest in the attic of a dear friend. The original sampler was stitched by E. Thomas at the age of 9. My adaptation of this sampler encompasses a series of motifs, borders and specialty stitches pulled from the original, as well as the added verse “stitched by me with golden needles”. We will personalize this miniature of the sampler by using the alphabet in threads to match the sawtooth satin stitch border. The piece will be worked on 36ct linen over 1 and 2 threads. The completed miniature sampler measures approximately 6 ½” wide and rolls to fit inside the miniature blanket chest included with your kit.
