Anne Thompson


An almost-finished chart of Ann Thompson, showing the original in the upper right corner and Tank in the second photo, lending perspective to the size of the project.  For those looking for an antique frame the dimensions are 379 horizontal, 418 vertical.  I'd recommend using 40 or 45 count linen. All that remains is fine tuning to the placement of motifs and closing in the lower border.

Wow.exciting. I'm sure Tank is impressed too. I have been watching for this one. Thanks for the update

Looks like Tank is ready for the finish as well. Looking like this beauty will be on the market soon.

I am definitely stitching this one but 40 ct !!!! A visit to the opticians for stronger glasses methinks.

Jenny said...

This sampler is going to be amazing! I agree with Nicola....stronger glasses for 40 count.....

Dawn said...

Wow, it is stunning!

Said to say, I've never counted higher than 28 or 18 for that matter! That will be a very pretty sampler to do no matter the size one does it on methinks.

I think poor kitty is annoyed at the paper being in their regal walk across the room.

Cats tend to be regal when they walk, ever notice? :)

Hugs and Love,
Jen

This is one that would be fun to stitch... perhaps I'll get this one instead of Ann Scutt..

40 ct. = magnifying lamp AND reading glasses ... but whatever it takes to get it done! Cannot wait for the release on Miss Ann ... she looks magnificent!

Looks like it must have been a bear to chart, but well worth it--it's a beauty!

I can't wait until this comes out. The size doesn't put me off at all. I love the design.
