Four New Reproduction Samplers

On this blistery fall day, I would like to show you my four new reproduction samplers from Merry Wind Farm.  All can be purchased at my Etsy store Merry Wind Farm.  I hope you may see one that you like.

First in Mist on The Mountain, Martha Ford's Work 1849.  This Adam and Eve
sampler has a beautiful and unusual verse that was penned by a 
Church of Scotland minister in the early 1800's.  A honeysuckle border surrounds the verse, 
two large stylized birds, owl, flower motifs and an Adam and Eve who look as if 
they have spent too long in the sun!
Cross stitch over 1 and 2 threads 
36 count Relic linen from Picture This Plus

Hannah Thompson is a fine example of a typical mid 19th centuryEnglish  spot motif
sampler.  She features alphabets, a strawberry dividing band, flowers, trees, a windmill
and a little person.  All stitching is cross over two threads on 36 count Angel Hair linen from
Weeks Dye Works.  Threads used are Gentle Arts and DMC.  Stitch count is 160 (w) X 224 (h).

Cornelia A. Moore is a very small  109 (w) X 124 (h) simple marking sampler.
She is perfect for a beginning stitcher and a quick project for the more
experienced.  The beautiful linen is 30 count Old Salem from The
Primitive Hare.  The sampler uses cross stitch over two threads, with one dividing
band of four-sided stitch and another of algerian eye.  Cross stitch could
be substituted for the beginning stitcher.  Threads used are Gentle Arts and DMC.
Just an idea, I plan to do another example of Cornelia's sampler using
only a red thread.  $12.00

Eliza Griffith is also stitched on Old Salem linen from The Primitive Hare.
She too is a simple marking sampler that could be accomplished by
a beginner.  The sampler is completed using only four colors of
The Gentle Arts threads.  Stitch count is 100 (w) X 160 (h) $12.00
