~~ An Antique Reproduction ~~
Worked entirely in cross stitch, Elizabeth Baker’s sampler is wonderfully patriotic with its red, white, and blue color palette. Miss Baker stitched a poignant verse at the top of her sampler, then filled the bottom with a joyous array of motifs including potted flowers, a basket of fruit, fir trees, a bird and a spotted dog. The whole is surrounded by a cheerful border of red flowers. But the star of this sampler is the blue Elizabeth chose to use for some of her flowers and baskets ~ wonderful! The reproduction is stitched on 36 count Lakeside Linen’s Vintage Light Exemplar with a combination of The Gentle Art’s and Weeks Dye Works’ threads.
The original sampler is shown in the last photo above.
Pattern includes color photo, professional cross stitch chart with floss colors and optional instructions for aging and hemming your sampler. Sampler stitch count: 202w x 233h (11.25”w x 13”h).
