Sarah Ann Marven 1838 is here!

Hello, I have just released a new reproduction sampler.  She is Sarah Ann Marven 1838, a lovely English sampler stitched in Trowbridge, Wiltshire.  Sarah Ann stitched a lovely verse in honor of her departed mother, Elizabeth.  The stitch count is 300 x 362 and I have stitched the model on 36 count Wren linen from Picture This Plus using Gentle Art Threads.  A DMC conversion is included.  Stitches used are mostly cross stitch over two threads, with the verse over one thread.

I wish to extend my heartfelt thanks to Jennifer Cahill for allowing me to reproduce this lovely sampler from her collection.  I hope that you like this beautiful sampler.

Available at my Etsy shop along with all of my other samplers.
