Ann Womack 1838 by Shakespeare's Peddler
Who doesn't love an all-red sampler? NOBODY, that's who! This one has got lots of alphabets, different specialty stitches, animals, Quaker stars, trees, and lots of spunk.
I recommend 40 count Vintage Exemplar linen by Lakeside Linens and Needlepoint Silk 207 (better get a few skeins!) But, you can easily stitch this on your favorite coffee- or tea-dyed linen....or whatever! This may not be an easy project for Aida, because there is a fair amount of specialty stitches and over-one stitching.
Time is always moving on
Time, we soon may say is gone,
Time is fleeting, and we know,
Time, at last, will disappear.
