This delightful sampler is brought to you as part of a series of “Little Gems” that are available as a .pdf download by Hands Across the Sea Samplers.

At only nine years of age Ann finished her delightful sampler. The young girl chose a delicious palette, she had a good eye selecting very soft yet colourful threads. She diligently worked at her sampler covering her linen with an assortment of motifs including two billy goats.

The verse she carefully stitched is the first of the nine Beatitudes of Matthew 5:3. “Blessed are the poor in spirit for theirs is the kingdom of heaven”. We do not know if Ann was rich or poor in spirit, with the passing of time all that remains today is her childhood needlework.

The design is suitable for needleworkers of all abilities. The stitches used are cross stitch over 1, 2, and 4 threads, together with a few Algerian eyelets.

Included in the pdf download are four graphs.

Graph 1 ~ A twenty-page colour block and symbol graph.

Graph 2 ~ A one-page colour block and symbol graph intended to be viewed/used on your tablet, phone, or PC.

Stitch Guide

The design is suitable for needleworkers of all abilities. The stitches used are cross stitch over 1, 2, and 4 threads, together with a few Algerian eyelets.

 

Cross stitch ~ is made up of two stitches worked over one or two threads. You should make all your stitches cross in the same direction for a neat and uniform finish.

Algerian Eyelets ~ when worked over four threads of linen 8 stitches are laid to create an eyelet. Do not tug on the thread using your needle as your thread will soon break. Instead, apply pressure by pulling on the thread close to the stitch. Even tension should be applied so each individual stitch sits well within the eyelet.
