The EF Sampler is a small band sampler with no first name, last name, town or village, or year that would help identify the stitcher.
The colors, all matched from the back of the sampler, include a checkered, dark-beige border that provides a stitched frame for the piece. The sampler includes an upper case alphabet completed in tans, beiges, blues and yellows, and a similar lower case alphabet stitched in a warm brown. A backwards “u” is included in the last row of lower case letters.
The pleasing tans, browns, and blues in the color palette coupled with the overall simplicity of the sampler make it a perfect addition to any needleworker’s sampler collection.
Finished sampler measures 89W X 103H stitches.
Model stitched using DMC, one strand over two, on 40 count Baked Clay linen from Fox and Rabbit.
The design is suitable for needleworkers of all abilities and contains no speciality stitches.
