Hannah's Sampler. Theresa found this sampler in very bad condition but could tell she loved the leafy border and the charming farmhouse - next to the brick wall - covering that little babbling brook. With very pretty colors of reds and greens, the row of diamonds below the alphabet are done with Rice Stitch. Those bricks in the wall and the waves in the water are all loosely placed in the original... The model is Stitched on 36ct Weeks Straw Linen with silks (Gloriana, Needlepoint Inc and Au Ver a Soie) or DMC, and it measures 16.5" x 15.5".
