Yes the bird border is to die for!
it is so stunning Nicola - I was surprised to hear about this in the SL newsletter that went out yesterday. You are one lucky girl to own this antique and we are all lucky for Marsha's repro of it. Cheers ! Melody
Wow - this is beautiful Nicola.
The bird border is amazing! Love it and really like the two ladies as well. What secrets are they sharing???
I have loved this sampler since you first purchased her Nicola! Thank you for sharing her with Marsha and therefore with all of us! Thank-you in advance Marsha for the many hours of hard work....it will be beautiful and I can hardly wait!
Congratulations to both Marsha and Nicola for this forthcoming reproduction.I will be in the queue to buy one of these charts.
I cannot wait ... so excited when I read this in Marsha's newsletter. Thank you, Nicola, for sharing this gorgeous antique.
From the moment you posted your purchase of this lovely sampler, I was amazed. This is truly a unique sampler with it's unusual bird border, the lovely floral band, our two fine ladies, the best friends ever and it's lovely verse. I told my mother the moment you posted, I sure hoped that it would be reproduced. Now, our wait begins....... What a treat we all have to look forward to.
I so agree with the other girls. I also fell in love with this beautiful girl. I'm so looking forward to be able to stitch this beautiful sampler. Just love everything about it.
I want it!
I agree with you Evalina - I want it!
Nicola, Was this sampler all stitched in cross, or were there other stitches?
Yes all cross stitch with the exception of the small strip of grass running under the girls feet. The bird border is soooo pretty.
Silly me - I forgot to say that the strip of grass looks to be stem stitch.
Oh yes, this is quite a special sampler. A must have!
Magnifique broderies bonne doiree Marie_Claire
I too will look forward to this. What a wonderful piece.
I just love this and I too want to stitch this one!!! I am so happy it is being reproduced. I love everything about this sampler and can't wait!!
Nicola, this is so exciting to see your sampler come to life for everyone. I love the birds in the border and can't wait for this sampler to be available.
Can hardly wait to have a chance to get the chart and start stitching. It is beautiful, especially the border and really the entire piece! Ruth
