Enamored with old sampler verses as well as Fraktur motifs, I’ve created two miniature stitcheries that combine both elements. The sampler reads, “Except this posey from a Friend whose Love will never end.” The misspelling is intentional and in keeping with that on a c. 1819 sampler. 4.75”h x 3.5”w.
Using elements from the same pattern, I also created this wee “Friend” pinkeep ~ 2”h x 4”w.
Originals were stitched on 32 count linen and feature a combination of one over one and one over two stitches.
Stitch count for sampler: 77h x 57w
Stitch count for pinkeep: 32h x 54w
Pattern includes color photo, professional cross stitch charts for both projects, DMC floss colors, optional aging instructions, and directions for making the pinkeep.
