Mary Ann Mitton 1832 is here!!!!

I am so excited and pleased to announce that Mary Ann Mitton 1832 is now completed and ready for purchase!  The price is $21.00 for the 12 page chart pack with color photo and $3.00 US shipping and $5.00 international shipping.   Mary Ann is a large and detailed sampler and was a joy to chart and stitch.

Her most striking feature is the unusual border.  She chose three hymn stanzas by prolific hymn writer Isaac Watts.  I know that Mary Ann is English, as evidenced in the W R inside the crown at the top, for William IV.  I have chosen 36 count ale linen from Picture This Plus, and have charted with DMC floss.  Sizes are given for 32, 36 and 40 count linen.  Stitches used are mostly cross over two, with a tiny amount of cross over 1, satin stitch, and algerian eye.  As of now, I have been unable to determine which of several Mary Ann Mittons born at the correct time in England was our stitcher, but I am continuing to work on this.

The vast majority of the sampler is a true reproduction.  However, only a ghost image of the actual manor house was left for me to work with.

I hope you like her and wish to stitch her.  As always, please contact me with any questions you may have.



  1. Melinda, you must have the patience of Job to stitch this and then to chart the design in other sizes too? That would drive me insane...if not blind for sure. Looks beautiful and you have another beautiful and historical stitchery for your walls. Lovely.

  2. Love the sampler Melinda.Blessings Francine
