Miss Mary Ann Bournes 1791  - Reproduction sampler by Hands Across the Sea Samplers

An unusual and charming English Sampler stitched during the reign of George III, depicting a large central motif of a bee keep surrounded by flowers, bees, butterflies and two large doves set within leafy arbours together with a cottage in a pastoral scene. All are contained within a stunning border with several varieties of flowers including roses and carnations.

The original sampler was stitched with silks on uneven linen of approximately 40(w)/46(h) ct. The model has been stitched with Au Ver De Soie silks on 40ct Lakeside Linen 'Sand Dune'. The reproduction design has been based on the mellowed colours of today.

Besides some small areas of satin stitch and a handful of eyelets the sampler is worked in cross stitch over 2 threads with Mary Ann’s name in cross stitch over 1 thread. The sampler has been graded as intermediate stitcher, however, it is not beyond an enthusiastic beginner. The bee after all denotes industry.

The sampler has been charted with Au ver a Soie stranded silks and the skein quantities calculated based on the sampler being stitched in 1 strand of silk. A DMC conversion based on 2 strands of cotton has also been included.
