Emma Miles

My charts came on Christmas Eve!  Here they are...
I am going to start with Emma Miles.  Does anyone know what the stitch count for this is?  I can't find it anywhere in the instructions!  I've emailed the Scarlet Letter, but I'm impatient and don't want to wait, LOL!

I have pulled HDF silks that  I had in my stash and will show them when I get the linen cut.

Love seeing everyones choices and progress!!

Hi Terri, I found it here on The Scarlet Letter site about this project.

Linen count and finished size: 35 or 40 count linen, 17"x17-1/2" or 14-3/4"x15-1/2"

It is a beautiful sampler and I am so happy your got yours!! I think Santa got his sleigh stuck in the snow as I still have yet to get my Elizabeth Sheffield but maybe tomorrow it will come in my mailbox! I am so anxious to get started too!!! Debby

Hi Terri I hope you don't get this twice. It didn't look like my comment went in the first time. It says on The Scarlet Letter web page :

Origin and date: England 1848
Rated: Intermediate
Linen count and finished size: 35 or 40 count linen, 17"x17-1/2" or 14-3/4"x15-1/2"
Stitches: Cross, tent, counted satin and eyelet stitches

I hope this will help you. Debby

You can always count the 'squares' on the graph-- I always round up after I do that method-- just in case :) Looking forward to your start!!

Emma is a lovely choice to start with.

Gabi said...

Beautiful choices.
Although I'm stitching Emma Miles as well I'm not sure what the exact stitch count is. You can always count the squares if you need to know.
I was too lazy for that and simply went with the approx sizes, added the desired amount of margin, and worked out fine for me.

I love your choices and I am sure you will enjoy stitching Emma.

Emma is really a beautiful choice. I don't have her yet, but just seeing how many are stitching her makes me want to buy her soon...and I will. Can't wait to see your progress.
