Deephaven Marking Samplers PATTERN
Deephaven Marking Samplers PATTERN

 

“There were her compositions and exercise-books; some samplers and queer little keepsakes; withered flowers and some pebbles and other things of like value, with which there was probably some pleasant association.” 

Inspired by Sarah Orne Jewett’s novel, Deephaven (1877), in which Kate & Helen explore the late Grand Aunt Katharine’s desk drawers and are taken with a small bundle of letters tied with black ribbon and marked in Aunt Katharine’s pen, “My dearest friend, Dolly McAllister, died September 3, 1809, aged eighteen.”  

Perhaps these miniature marking samplers were those they found in the drawer?  One stitched by Katharine and one by Dolly when they were yet girls and happily spending the summer together at Deephaven… 

Stitch counts: 75w x 68h (top) and 74w x 61h (bottom).  Finished sizes (as shown above): 5”w x 4.5”h and 5”w x 4”h.  Originals stitched on 35 count linen using a combination of DMC and Gentle Arts threads.  Both are very simply backed with calico. 

Pattern includes color photo, professional cross stitch charts with floss colors The Gentle Arts and DMC, aging instructions, and backing your samplers.
