This is another of my wips that I took out, I also started this one years ago, but I want to finish stitching it afterI finish AAWFAA. This is a oop design from Sheepish Designs and it was designed by Cindy Bradford years ago when she was with SD.
I started this on a 35 count linen with AVS threads. Back then I started collecting all the SD and I am glad I have them all since since the very first one was released, since now they are out of print and there are still a couple of them that I want to stitch.
ELIZA LEE 1841 ANTIQUE SAMPLER
I wanted to share one of my five antique samplers that I own, this one is from Eliza Lee and it is dated 1841. It was stitched on a 55 gauze linen with silk threads and it has a very nice verse. The reason I bought it was because it was dated with the name of the stitcher.
The verse reads: We seek a rest beyond the grave, In everlasting day, Through floods and flames the passage lies, But Jesus guides the way. I might reproduce it one day.
ELIZABETH BROBST 1819
This is another of my personal stitched samplers, that I enjoyed stitching, I stitched it on a handwoven linen from the Scarlet Letter with AVS silk fibers, it has some specialty stitches, especially one over one, but frankly I do not remember who reproduced it, since I stitched it about 14 years ago.
AGNES ELAND HICK 1858
This is another of my personal finished samplers, it
is a Quaker reproduction and only called for three
colors of threads. I stitched it on 45 count linen using
AVS silks, I stiched it a long time ago, but I have been
looking for the graph to see who reproduced it, but I
cannot find it. I know it is somewhere, oh well I guess
it will show up one of these days.
