After months and months of work...first the fun part, the charting and then the stitching of this wonderful sampler, and then the not so fun part...trying to learn how to use a computer for something other than email and shopping, Elena Tratman 1824 is finally making her debut! The price of the chart is $17.50, with $3.50 US shipping and $6.50 international shipping. I know international shipping is expensive, but that is the lowest I can go :)
For the time being, Elena is available through my blog. I hope to also have her available through select shops, but one thing at a time! Please click on the buy it now option on the left header, and chose either US or international shipping. Even though the weather here has been so dreadful, I will promise to get them mailed within 2 days to you. Please share this new release on your blogs and to your friends. I need all the help I can get to get this new business off the ground. A special heartfelt thanks goes out to Carmen Sutton, without her help and friendship this never would have come to fruition! Thank you, dear Carmen!!
Now some details on Elena. I have chosen to stitch her on 36 count Ale linen from Picture This Plus, using DMC floss. Elena was from Gloucester, England, and was born in 1824 and died in 1837. The STITCH COUNT is 230 X 329. The antique Elena Tratman sampler can also be seen on the left side of my blog.
Thanks so much for your consideration of this sampler reproduction. Hopefully by the time my next one is available, all this awful snow and ice will have melted. It is nearly impossible to get through it to go to the barn, and the barn water pipes are still frozen! I think they will remain frozen until spring, which hopefully will arrive very, very soon. I'm sure you all are tired of hearing me complain about the weather :(
Thank you kindly for your support!
Hugs to all,
