Queen of the May 2020 - Mary Carter 1712 | Hands Across the Sea Samplers
Jane’s sampler, a particularly beautiful one, is filled to bursting with motifs that vibrate with colour. The more you study the sampler the more you will see. This charming sampler has been mainly executed with cross stitch over two threads with a small amount of cross stitch over one thread for Patch the dog. Other stitches used are double running stitch, satin stitch, Algerian eyelet stitch, four-sided stitch, plait stitch and stem stitch. Jane’s sampler has been rated as suitable for intermediate and advanced needle workers but is not beyond a confident beginner. The sampler is an ideal choice for those who wish to expand their repertoire of stitches.
