Charlotte stitched her sampler when she was 12 years old. It features very tiny silk stitches on a tightly woven delicate groundcloth. It measures almost 6.25” by 6.25”.  

Charlotte’s choice of colors are predominately blues, greens, pale lavender and beige with the “S” and the “Y” stitched in a dark red. The second alphabet in the middle of the sampler is done using a four-sided stitch. All other stitching was completed using one strand of silk over two threads. On either side of Charlotte’s name are what appears to be trees. The dainty stitches four-sided stitches, coupled with lacy dividers, wandering vines and a soft color palette make Charlotte Eastoe a nice addition to any sampler collection.

Finished sampler measures 108W X 125H stitches.
