Hannah’s sampler features: a honeysuckle border of many colours; a double alphabet and two houses;  a windmill;  a snake curled around a tree;  a man and lady sheltering under an umbrella;  a swan plus numerous birds and butterflies;  a stunning basket of flowers and a double crucifix. Crucifixion samplers are uncommon and seldom do they have the charm of this sampler.  To have a double crucifixion scene is rare.

Hannah, when she was only 10 years of age, showed great industry and patience in stitching such a large project on 60ct linen.The verse featured on Hannah’s sampler is a compilation taken from two hymns by Isaac Watts dealing with death: “Prayer for Deliverance from the Fear of Death” and “Death of the Sinner and Saint”.

There are a variety of stitches used: cross stitch over 1 and 2 threads, satin stitch, back stitch and French knots. Whilst a large project at some 66,000 stitches Hannah is suitable for all levels. Within the booklet are detailed stitching notes and stitch diagrams. The booklet is printed in full colour throughout.

Stitch Count: 478W x 517H

The sampler has been reproduced with Au Ver à Soie d’Alger silks and the skein quantities calculated based on 1 strand on 36ct fabric. We have provided a DMC conversion based on 2 strands on 36ct fabric. The model was stitched on 40ct Lakeside Linen Examplar.
