Abigail Gould's Sampler of 1796
Mystery 36 count linen
Abigail is much more colorful than I thought that she would be. I stitched her with DMC threads and a mystery piece of linen that I tried to match closely to what the background should have been. While I try to stay true to reproductions, I didn't want to fill-in all the background on the piece. She only measures about 6" x 6" and will be a great addition on my A&E walls. The design is rather simple, but I think so sweet, although I'm trying to figure out what the motif is between the tree and the gentleman. Any thoughts?
My next project, and my New Year's Day, start will be Ann Smith. I can't wait to start stitching on her. The colors are so bright and colorful.
I'll be stitching her with the recommended AVAS threads and 36 count Magnolia fabric. I had a hard time picking out which sampler to stitch from all the wonderful ones that the Scarlett Letter has. Needless to say, there are a "few" that I pulled out of the stash pile, kitted up and they are waiting in the wings!!
I wish everyone a safe, happy and healthly New Years!!!
