I am so excited to be a part of Nicola's Scarlet Letter Year. I had so much fun looking through the Scarlet Letter website, and I have decided on two samplers. I have only just ordered them, so the pictures are both from the Scarlet Letter website.
|SDW A German Band Sampler|
The first sampler is SDW A German Band Sampler, circa 1710. I love the different animals that are on this sampler. I ordered the chart instead of the kit because I want to look for a fabric to stitch this sampler on. I haven't decided if I will use cotton or silk fibers yet.
My second sampler is Margret Lawrance, A Scottish sampler, dated 1823. It has an illuminated alphabet which reminds me of William Blake, the poet, who engraved illuminated alphabets. I ordered the kit with 35 ct. fiber and silk fibers. I am so excited to receive both of these samplers.
