RDS Ann Mitchell

This is a reproduction of an old sampler belonging to the designer.   It is damaged, so that the original text cannot be made out; she has therefore improvised a verse, which can roughly be translated:

As she makes the needle fly
She contemplates each stitch with pride

It is stiched on 40 count Pearled Barley by Lakeside Linen using Soie d'Alger or DMC. Stitch count is 339 x 387.   Stitches used are cross stitch over 2 threads, half cross stitch over 1 thread and satin stitch.

The chart is printed over 20 pages for improved readability.
