A Part of Ann Dale


Ann Dale stitched her sampler in 1827 -- she must have been quite a girl. You can find the entire reproduction elsewhere on my site, but if you feel like a "smaller" sampler is more your style, I've reproduced just the bottom section of the sampler. It's still got a stitch count of 402 by 244, so it's not tiny!


Fabric is 40 count Vintage Pear by Lakeside Linens (please be aware that sometimes this can turn out pretty green and you may want to play with your options.) Threads used on the model were Needlepoint Silks, Belle Soie Wheatgrass, and Gloriana Holly Berry and Vanilla. But I have provided a Sampler Threads conversion and a DMC conversion. Happy stitching!
